It is a good place to have lunch or dinner, however the place smelled like cigarettes. The food is tasty and the patatas bravas is the best plate. Nonetheless, I preferred Tapas La Macarena

We were disappointed after reading other reviews. It was quite busy but we were given a table almost immediately. We ordered patatas bravas, a salad and an aubergine dish. The patatas bravas arrived before our drinks and were very salty. We waited some time and the salad arrived. The aubergine dish never arrived because we'd waited so long after the... More

This restaurant is not your typical tapas place, the tapas on the menu are creative, very tasty and all in all very recommendable. The service was friendly, the place is relaxed. Great place to go for lunch with a group or just a few people. With more people you can order more variety as the portions are pretty generous. Very... More

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.
