Went twice during this stay as I was interested in seeing the Flamenco show on Thursday. The show wasn't too impressive but fun, none the less. The young waiter was excellent. Recommending dishes and giving great advice like taking the half portion of "Papas Bravas"....More

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...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...More

La Taperia was born in Bogotá in 2009 as the consolidation of the experience acquired for more than 15 years by Peter Hoogeveen: DJ, Chef and pioneer in the tapas business in Colombia, who in mid-2005 opened in Bogotá the first restaurant of this class: Tapas a la Casa (Link to video) and later the famous and small "Tapas Macarena”. La Taperia consolidates itself as a tapas restaurant specializing in the ritual of sharing: the varied tapas menu of contemporary and international inspiration, the robust selection of imported drinks and the warm, cultural and inclusive atmosphere full of flavors, art and music for celebrate life.
