Seriously, always delicious! We always get the smoked salmon, the bacon-wrapped scallops and the solomillo. The salmon is served with warm fried pita and the combination of the warm bread with the cool salmon and capers is fabulous. The scallops are always cooked perfectly and...More

The food was colorful and flavorful, service was excellent and Chef John came out to visit and talk to us. He made sure everything was up to our expectations and gave the birthday girl a free soup and dessert!

We have been coming here for years. The outside of the building is inexpressive, but the interior is cozy and stylishly funky. John has years of high end restaurant chef experience and does an excellent job of continually updating the tapas meat and seafood. Victor...More

I've become a great fan of the Spanish tapas style dining, and Macarena does a great job. A great variety of tapas dishes on the menu, and I'd suggest their sangria to accompany, will turn any dinner outing into a festival! And don't forget great...More

The first time we visited this place I was not familiar with it's menu and was a bit let down. I wasn't looking for a "Pig Out" place but the items were very small. Our next two visits were more pleasing knowing what to expect...More
