We ordered four tapas and the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu and our bill came to $70. For Bogota, this is considered pricey and as such, based on reviews and prices we expected great things. We were SO disappointed. We ordered the Garlic...More

Sorry for your disappointment. We will certainly check your suggestions. We have another restaurant just opposite the road. So that might be the reason why you saw the waiter bringing the beer from outside. Please give us another chance and tell us about this review....More

We enjoyed some really good food in this small restaurant. Nice atmosphere/service, the pulpo was outstanding and the whole meal very reasonably priced.

This is the best little gem, authentic food and people - you must go and have their amazing tapas. We were lucky enough to sit on the two wobbly seats at the bar and watch the magic in the kitchen!

Description
This is a tiny and trendy restaurant. Foodies love it because they feel at home. It is the first tapas bar in Colombia and is well known by its contemporary menu, composed by traditional Spanish tapas as tortilla de patatas, Serrano ham as well as its own creations. Tapas Macarena presents its own version of patatas bravas and they are very famous. The Serrano salad, the white fish in basil oil with asparagus and dried tomatoes, lamb burgers, baby pork cooked for 10 hours, octupus, etc. Vegetarian options. Tapas go along well with a cold beer, a glass of sangria or wine. If you want to have a unique and personalised experience come to Tapas Macarena. The invitation is to bring all the dishes to the middle of the table and share. We offer a gastronomy experience though different flavours, origins and textures. Our food is freshly presented and handmade. Our warm service is always welcoming. Reviewed by the New York Times, CNN and Lonely Planet guide.
