La Merenda is a casual tapas bar & restaurant located in Milwaukee's historic Walker's Point. From antipasti to empanadas, local brews to South American wines, we will satisfy your craving for regional and international flavor. <br />La Merenda is committed to the preservation of the family farm way of life by incorporating local, seasonal items into our menus whenever possible. This practice creates menus that are not only better for us, but also, more socially and environmentally responsible.<br />

"This was a last minute discovery on a business trip...out of the way neighborhood...but worth the venture for the many tasty tapas options on the menu. So many good choices it was hard to decide...all lived up to their description and then some. However, service was slow and spotty. The cozy friendly atmosphere that marked the beginning just was not sustained. Hope they will up their game."

Chef Jennifer Jasinski's creatively inspired Mediterranean food is influenced by local seasonal products. Rioja is simple, pure food that emphasizes bright flavors & textures. The wines are a collection of fun interesting varietals that compliment the cuisine.

"What a find in Denver! Wonderful, innovative food paired with great service. Do not miss the artichoke pasta... or the chocolate/caramel tart.
Our server guided us to excellent choices and a lovely wine to pair with the meal.

"On a snowy night, Terra Bistro had a nice hum of activity in an off season. Food was tasty, service welcoming and attentive. Even better, in the mud season it is a great bargain"

"I was disappointed in this restaurant...the strawberry gazpacho was a mess...no way to put tomatoes and strawberries into a room temperature soup. Main course was certainly ample and tasty, but there just was no punch to this spot."
