It isss expensiveeee but it's worth every penny. They cook the meat in a way you won't even believe it's real. Pinch me. LOL, too bad it is that expensive or I would go like every day. No special recommendations, just order whatever you prefer and boom, you tell me.

You will eat very well here but don't come here for a cheap deal. Five of us had a huge plate of assorted stark cuts and ate like kings washed down with a bottle of Argentine Malbec. Superb. We paid about USD 260.00

Great steaks and service. Imported cuts are a bit expensive, but there is a good selection of local choices.

It was a Thursday night when my wife and I went to have our dinner at Don Cándido Restaurant. The atmosphere was very pleasant . The service was also perfect. The food? I am sure their food, especially steak, is one of the best in all Nicaragua. As conclusion, Don Cándido is highly recommendable for demanding food lovers.

Very nicely decorated dining rooms and bar, formal place settings and glasses, linen napkins and professional servers make this restaurant special. Outstanding steak prepared exactly as ordered make me want to return each time I'm in town!
