This is an out of the way place and was fun to find. They have many gluten free options and amazing tapas to share. We had a couple of drink specials, empanadas and a special chirizo and rice dish. It was a highlight of our trip.

A group of friends, great cocktails and a bunch of fabulous little bites made for a fun night.Not too much food, just enough to drink and an upbeat crowd of customers that were all enjoying great service.Well done.

One could easily drive or walk past this delightful restaurant. When weather permits one can enjoy the pleasant outside area for a variety of exquisite and tasty dishes beautifully presented . There also are special drinks unique to La Merenda. And being one who is celiac there are plenty options to meet gluten free needs. It was a memorable experience and a place I will visit again if and when I return to Mikwaukee.

A variety of new flavors and tastes from around the world created a fun and interesting time out. As each dish came out one at a time, it provided the opportunity to appreciate the uniqueness of every dish. Our excitement got the better of us every time a dish came out that we forgot to take pictures. If you are looking to just stuff your face, this is not the place. This is a fantastic place to enjoy each other's company and appreciate food.
They have many Gluten Free options as one of us is Celiac.
The place itself doesn't look like much when you pull up. But the outdoor dining was fantastic. The inside looked okay too, but we took advantage of the beautiful weather.

We enjoyed and evening of small plates and sangria. Service was competent, outdoor atmosphere was very pleasant. The menu had lots of tempting an pd interesting choices, this is a small plate restaurant with various nationalities represented. We ordered a grilled octopus salad, which despite smelling it coming was pretty good. Octopus was nicely cooked and tender and tasted fine surrounded by a decent salad. We also ordered Argentinian beef, very tender and properly cooked but we both felt it was rather flat on flavor as was the puree underneath. We also ordered chicken curry empanadas, a few small puff pastry turnovers filled with chicken curry. My husband is not a big curry fan so he liked it as it was far more pastry than filling, I love curry so was rather disappointed that I got only a hint of curry flavor. The food was good as was the sangria and while there was nothing to complain about, there was notning to write home about either. We did enjoy the atmosphere of the patio and the small plate format for a fun evening.
