We stumbled into this high energy restaurant by accident and had an amazing night. The atmosphere was very lively and warm. The Mexican food was very very fresh and authentic tasting. Great cocktail menu.

A good mix of Latin food. Loved the empandas and the mangu. Mimosas were good as well. The ambience overall of the place was nice. I definitely recommend this place for either a Latin person or someone who is trying out Spanish food mix.

Very tasty and affordable fusion of Venezuelan and Barcelona cuisine, potent South American-flavored cocktails. Good happy hour deals. Very interesting background music (the night I was there it was an Afro-Cuban band playing covers of heavy metal tunes, but I'm sure it rotates). A good find, unique and excellent.

The staff, in particular, the manager, did an outstanding job! Really made a fun night for all of us! We were a group of 12 with a variety of food issues and he accommodated all of us. The food was delicious! Can't wait to return! Highly recommend this establishment!

We had high expectations for the restaurant. The atmosphere and menu looked great. Hostess was rude and food was bland or bad. Wouldn't go back. I was surprised as the reviews are generally good. Wanted to add this review so people think twice before going.

This is the third time I've eaten at Macondo and I just say the overall taste of the food has diminished. First my friend and I ordered drinks. We ordered a guava and whiskey concoction that was actually very tasty and not two sweet, so thumbs up. Then we ordered a few plates to share. We started with the mushroom... More

A popular brunch spot. They have a great deal for bottomless mimosas and their food is great as well. I recommend the burger
