Macondo is a leafy little slice of Colombia, hidden in the backstreets of industrial Salisbury, serving authentic Colombian cuisine.

Passionate about sharing their love of Colombia with their customers, owners Miriam and Jaime invite diners to take a culinary journey from the jungles of the Amazon to the snow-capped Andes and the jewelled seas of the Caribbean.

The menu, ordering and payment is contactless and, for convenience, all done online. This means that customers can, via their phones, view, choose, discuss and order the menu items either in advance or when they arrive. View menu HERE
