La Taperia is by far an excellent place for tapas. Although it's not so easy to find the place, which is by the way located in a good district but not so close of the historical center, it's worth it.

The place was packed and nevertheless the service was very good and the food was excellent. Ask for patatas bravas, pulpos a la gallega and you can't go wrong.

I went to Colombia over 3 years ago and this was one of the first restaurants I tried. At the time, I was impressed and thought the place was delicious. It left such a great impression on me that I went back again a few weeks ago with my husband for lunch. The food is delicious. Perfect texture and flavor... More

Had a great experience here. The food is spectacular and the atmosphere is nice. Hams hanging and wine bottles on display. Especially enjoyed the chorizo, dades, ceviche peruano and patatas bravas with a great house sauce. Perfect for friends to meet. Prices vary from USD5 to USD15 per dish (fairly good sized portions) and you would need at least three... More
