The waiter was great assuring us we could get whatever we wanted. He made great recommendations. We loved the food both my husband and I had beef dishes. This is where we were introduced to the Jamaica, and the limon - both are cool drinks, the first made of hibiscus flowers and the second lemon and ginger.

It was a great respite from the"busyness" of the prior events (visiting Volcan Masaya and Catarina) and the gentle breeze that flowed through the open restaurant was indeed a special touch. We even had a gentleman from off the street... More

This restaurant is a true gem. The filet mignon a la plancha was just the best steak that I have ever tasted. My wife ordered the tilapia and it was just delicious. The waiters were very friendly and helpful. A positive experience all the way around at a price that didn't break the bank.

Very good restaurant with a varied menu at affordable pricing. The place is large and can accommodate a large group indoors and there is also outdoor seating. Get there early as the restaurant fills up fast due to its popularity!

Attentive service. Good drinks. Good location. The occasional annoying tchotchke hawker.
