Really tasty food and very nice venue for dining. The octopus "a la taperia" was simply mouthwatering, although the portion was way too small. I get that tapas are meant to be small plates, but this was just a bite. By the opposite token, the patatas bravas with garlic mayonnaise were enough to feed an entire family. Very good experience...

We ate here twice and every time it was delicious! They have a great selection of authentic, but not very obvious tapas and really good sangria (especially the white one with cava). Desserts are also very good. It was definitely the best tapas I had in Colombia.

A nice restaurant to share a good time with your partner or friends. Good ambiance, but decor quality is lowered by the fake, plastic jamones that are hung on every wall. Some of the hot tapas were a little salty to our taste. Service is good and fast. I little to the pricy end relative to the food quality, but... More

Located in Macarena, not the song title, but a bit of a bohemium scene. The place was full by 8:00. We only had wine and a few tapas, but enjoyed them all. I highly restrict myself by not eating seafood any place a long way from the sea. The locals did not share my paranoia and some of the plates... More

In this place you will find that good food and nice drinks aren't necessarily expensive. Order the sangria and ask the staff for recommended dishes and they will surely guide you.

Tapas is what makes this a famous place (hence the name) and also its sangria. The best thing about La Taperia is that the food and beverages are excellent and the prices are wonderful. For less than USD50 two people may enjoy food and wine and be very satisfied.

I decided to visit La Taperia mainly because of the live Flamenco music on Thursdays and Saturdays. The food itself is good, but the quantity for each plate is very limited and for two people you most likely you will need to order at least 3 tapas to get some sense of fullness. My remarks about the service, the waiters... More

We found this small tapas place (actually the owners are from holland...) but the food was really good and tasted like the real spanish one!-- Patatas bravas, shrimp, cheeses and good wine. It is located in the city center (closer to the old town) so if you are around try to visit--I was amaze of how cheap it was for... More
