I have eaten here several times and am always fascinated with the steak Gator, beef tenderloin cooked a whole perfectly grilled flavor. is not a very fancy place but very typical and cozy, the service is not very fast but worth waiting for that steak and the food, every time I go to Managua have to stop to this place.

I visited this restaurant 3 times within the 2 weeks that I was in Managua! My husband wanted to go back a 4th time. This is a local restaurant and is in an outside patio. The cooking is done at a huge grill by the entrance. This place is not fancy but serves the best steak- " the gator"! We... More

Delicious steak - some of the best I've had in Nicaragua - at very reasonably prices. Clean, no-frills restaurant with good (albeit sometimes slow) service, in a tucked-away patio. Great for relaxed, everyday dinners, particularly good for groups.

We had lunch for 3 on a weekday. The tenderloin steak ( called el Gator ) was plentiful for all 3 and super delicious, The rice and beans ok , but there were other options that were better. The tab around $ 30 was perfect, we had a great meal and can't wait to return.

When going with friends, family or a group of people the Gator is the way to go! They have high-quality-beaf - you cannot have too much of it and will definitely go back. Perfect for group lunch/dinner! Ohhhh, not to mention that the soup is always great for a hangover, or just because. Delightful!

Food is good here, not that expensive. French fries are really good, so you can order that to eat with your meat. It takes about 10-15 for the food to arrive at your table so you don't have to wait that long if you are really hungry.

Nicaraguan steakhouse in a patio setting. Friendly atmosphere and good beef. Get the "Gator" if you're really hungry. Good place for lunch, too. Located in Villa Fontana near Club Terraza.

El patio is hands down one of the greatest places to have dinner. Services and food are always on point. If you havent visit this location, then you need too. Order the gator steak you wont go wrong with this selection.

The name does not deceive. It is an open air patio, most seating under trees, with no frills. The lomo de costilla steak is top notch, and you cannot beat the prices. Service is good. This is not a dating place, a special occasion place, but it is clean, and the food is good. It is a standby place. Sit... More
