We were taken to el Filete Steak House as part of an cruise excursion tour of Nicaragua. The main dining room was decorated with an evergreen Christmas tree covered in local handicraft. This room was effectively wide open on 2 sides in keeping with the tropical climate of the area. Our luncheon buffet included many local dishes, including beans, rice,... More

We needed a big meal on our way to the airport and this place delivered. The meals came with soup and salad (and you can refill) which made my family happy. We had two different steaks, chicken and fish dishes. The steaks were the best, particularly the Churrasco. Clean, open air, large space. More pricey than many other local restaurants... More

Great service, delicious food I had the fish filet with garlic and olive older. While very good, make sure you are a garlic lover. The shrimp was also very fresh my partner had no complaints. During Christmas the decor is great as well!

To begin with this is an established restaurant with years of impeccable service. The building is one of the bigger restaurants I have frequented in Nicaragua. They have separate areas for conferences, family parties and fine dining. The building is very well cared for and open to the brisk winds that pass thru Nindiri. The food is just excellent. I...

Beautifully decorated, open air, tropical, nicely decorated and well maintianed nicaraguan fare restaurant. The menu includes many fine steak and fish selections, I ordered the steak filet de salsa jalapeña it was fantastic! The tasty jalapeña sauce is cream based with onions and jalapeños which complimented the generous size juicy grilled steak. The bill was $100 for 5 people, somewhat... More

I was pleasantly surprised by the excellent quality of food at El Filete, the fresh fish, the steaks, the chicken were all tasty, well prepared, the waiters attentive. The place itself is average, on the road side, it has lost its typical atmosphere. The prices are on the high side for Nicaragua, e.g. compared to Bucanero on the other side... More

Lunch came with soup and salad from the self serve table. The rest of the lunch & drink order was taken by a waiter and brought to the table. The food was delicious. The tables were beautifully and colorfully decorated. There was a band that came to sing and play music while we ate. We had a member of our... More

Short and sweet. In my 62 years...the worst dining experience ever. It was clean and the waitress was sweet. The wine list consisted on Riunite. Ok, well the beer was fairly cold. There was no one in the place which should have been a red flag. But many decent restaurants in Nicaragua have few customers. The waitress took our order.... More
