This fussy NY foodie found Macarena to be excellent on all levels. Despite some concerns about some non traditional "Tapas" the dinner I set up with the proprietor in advance to take care of us - 14 people - he hit it out of park...More

Second time eating at Macarena Tapas. Three consistent themes: (1) tasty food, (2) very slow service, and (3) a pricey bill. The food is undoubtedly good. We love the Queso de Cabra. The service is horrendous...unless you're there to eat Tapas over an hour and...More

I have passed by this restaurant many times in the last 9 years, but I hadn't tried it until now. I feel really silly because it is truly a great Tappas restaurant. The exterior is an unassuming small strip mall location. The interior is a...More

We have been going to Macarena's over and over. We like their atmosphere, they definitely know what they are doing. The menu is diverse and they always try to incorporate some new options. Good wines, sangrias... End of course, the owner Victor! He is s...More

Macarena has tapas as good (or better) than the well-known tapas place down the road, and their prices are more reasonable. There is a great variety of cold and hot tapas, and they have single-person entrees if that's more your thing. The service has always...More
