As we were first timers, we still took our time through the limited menu. The staff were quite helpful with options based on our preferences and showed us some of the meals when they took them to patrons who had already ordered. We shared the pabellon as it had a combination of shredded beef, some rice and black beans, along... More

We went to this restaurant based on trip adviser's rating. The food was very interesting. Particularly if you wanted to try Venezuelan food for the first time. The food was good and very interesting. But it was by no means a special place to go. The Decor was fast food. You order at the counter. It just did not seem... More

I have paid twice as much for food that wasn't half as good as what I had at La Taguara. It started with the owner greeting me when I walked in the front door. He explained the menu and the most popular dishes. He was very friendly and passionate about his place and the food. I selected a dish with... More

It was date night, time to escape the kids and for my sweetheart and I to have a quiet meal. We're slowly exploring fun/interesting places in Madison this year. Since she was raised in Venezuela and I've visited Venezuela several times, we couldn't resist. The location isn't great, along one of those non-descript blocks to East Wash, out towards East...

Guy working the counter was very friendly and walked me through the various entrees and what the more popular ones were etc. Ended up getting some passion fruit juice which was very good, tostones (a little too...

Came here based on Trip Advisor reviews and very glad I did. I enjoyed my Imperial beer while waiting for dinner. Learned a little about Venezuela as well from the decor. I had the Churrasco Criollo. The steak was very flavorable, albeit a little tough in some places. The rice was standard but the picadillo salad was very refreshing. I... More

Great food, great service, decent prices. Winner. But I have to type at least 100 characters to post this, so know that mom, dad, and 8-yr-old picky eater all liked it.

La Taguara provided the food for a wedding buffet at the Cardinal Bar on September 20. As a parent of the bride I heard many unsolicited comments about how great the food was.
