Really enjoyed the ambiance of the restaurant and the food was delicious as well. It was pretty busy for a weekday lunch.

just beautiful, good food, good drinks, not expensive. The decoration is just amazing, so similar to a great restaurant in Cartagena. It feels special. The service is great and the food very good.

This restaurant is located in a very hip area and caters to a trendy crowd. The food, however is authentic traditional Mexican with high-quality ingredients and great flavors. They had a very interesting assortment of tacos, some of which were unconventional but deliciously flavorful. It has doors that open onto the street so you can also get a streetside dining... More

The whole smoked jalapeño chili pepper is the best you'll ever taste ... Anywhere I'd go just for that but the place stops serving at 6 The allied shop next door sells fine foods and exceptional chocolate. Upstairs is... More

We went to el parnita to celebrate a birthday, the food was great and original, but the service was awful, it took hours to get the drinks and seemed they didn't has enough personnel to serve all of us, if you want to have a great meal it's good not that good for Saturday night out.

This is a really neat place to go and grabe a bite in the weekdays but it is bets in the weekend. Really hip crowd gathers around here and cures their hangover with great selection of tacos tortas and tlayudas. Be sure to order a torta La Parnita.

I've eaten here many times over the past two years. Despite the chaos and noise, the staff is efficient and friendly. My favorite taco is the huerfano, breaded shrimp on a schmear of refried beans, a slice of white cheese and a dollop of guacamole. The daily specials are worth a look. The desserts are good but heavy, as most... More

After walking past El Parnita we were drawn in by the huge crowd outside. We initially had a couple of drinks standing / on the benches outside and eventually decided to ask for a table. The wait for a table was totally worth it as the food was amazing and everything was reasonably priced for the type of restaurant it... More
