Macoco was recommended to us by our hostel in Pipa - the service was great and the waitress talked us through all of the options on the menu. The food was a very high standard and great value for money.

Macoco is one of our favourite restaurants in Pipa. The food is affordable, flavoursome and beautifully presented. We returned four times to savour the exquiste tastes. The lamb cutlets are stunningly good (this is high praise coming from people who have access to the best of lamb at home in Ireland). Michaela and her husband chef Jose Luca are very welcoming and ensure that your dining experience is a memorable one. We look forward to returning next January!

I would call it haute cousine, with interesting ingredients and combinations as well as beatiful presentation, cheap price and enchanting decoration. Simply lovely place and superb food. JUST LOVED IT.

Macoco is a small and nice restaurant in a narrow street in the centre of Pipa.
We went there by chance and were attracted by its look: colourful walls, nice little tables, a counter with fresh pasta, a fridge with cakes and other home made preparations (sauces, pickles, etc)... then we looked at the menu and decided to have dinner here. The dishes proposed are different than the usual ones you can find in Pipa, and there is a creative touch both in the presentation of them and in the ingredients used. Soups are amazing, as well as empanadas (the chef is Argentinean) and there is even a vegan option, if you are interested in!
The atmosphere is joyful, the food is tasty and Michaela even speaks English, pretty uncommon here!
They also sell their home made products, in case you have a kitchen were you are staying.
As many other restaurants in the area, they don't accept credit cards.
