We took relatives to this restaurant and all had a great meal. We had the churrasco and it was delicious. Only complaint was that it was too big but had left overs. Should have ordered the junior size which would have been just right! The service was attentive. Overall a great dinner out! Definitely recommend!

Sometimes you just need a good cowboy cut and you're not going to find it at most places in Managua. Porterhouse does have a great selection of quality steaks including a cowboy cut and while it's price point puts it out of the normal humans daily lunch spot, sometimes you have to spend to get what you want. I met... More

Business associates took me to Porterhouse for a lunch this week, and I must say that the meal and service were excellent. I enjoyed the churrasco and a salad, and it was delicious. We shared bread and spinach dip for an appetizer. The wait staff was attentive and our service was prompt and accurate. We ate in the air conditioned... More

Visited during business lunch already two times during one year. Excellent food and waiters really good. Ask for a Churrasco you will be delighted with the meat flavor! A must for every trip to Managua.

Porterhouse was recommended by our hotel and we could not have been any happier. The restaurant has a well-appointed outdoor seating area and is very inviting. Service was efficient and friendly and the recommendations were spot on! The food preparation was classic steak house with our entrees grilled to perfection. The wine list is somewhat limited but the cocktails were... More

This used to be thee place, but as with all restaurants that are not supervised by the owner constantly standards slip as they did when we dined there with six friends. nothing was bad just a bit off, service um goodish, quality of meat, good but not spectacular. A good meal nothing special.

The churrasco was the best we've had in Nicaragua and we have had it many places. The fish was outstanding too. A bit pricey compared to other fine establishments in Managua but we will be back!

I go to porterhouse about once a month - the steak is consistently good, the service is decent and the outdoor seating is nice. I would recommend the filet mignon (or something similar) - their churrasco pales in comparison to Los Ranchos'.

When it come to steak houses, this is one of my favorites, the service is attentive and you can not go wrong with any of the steaks. The dinning experience is pleasant, soft music, great ambience and same prime steak you can get from Mortons or Ruth's Chris. I have visited this restaurant twice and both times for business meetings... More

I highly recommend the baby ribs, they rival any one I've tried around in my travels. The beef is excellent also. Ask for their special plate...you won't regret having one of the best meals in Managua.
