We dined there twice, and had to have the chimichurri steak twice there. It was my son's first time to have the dish in Nicaragua and he thought it was delicious. Great scenery and service.

This was the venue for our last dinner together as a group & was perfect. Everyone enjoyed their meals, ranging from seafood to steak. The steak I had was perfectly cooked, tender and flavoursome. There were a few perfectly cooked vegetables on the side and rice was served as required. The setting was airy, clean and welcoming. The only reason... More

Wonderful meal, exceptional service. Not sure why others say it's expensive, unless they are compareing it it to fast food. 4 full meals including apps and cocktails, bottle of wine all for less than $40 each. Would have been $80 each in the US.

Wonderful grilled beef in a garden setting. Attentive service. Not a bargain, but thoroughly enjoyed. Chilean & Argentine wines are perfect accompaniments.

While in Granada, we had 3 meals at this restaurant and each time, it was great! The service is friendly and attentive and the food delicious. Among our favorites, the shrimp cocktail, the fettuccini pomodoro, the pepper steak and the onion soup......all amazingly good. Highly recommended.....and reservations are a good idea.

This is a lovely restaurant on a quiet street. The atmosphere is tranquil and the service gracious. The ceviche and fish were perfectly prepared. The tortilla soup is not to miss. .Buen provecho!

This was the third time I have been to El Zaguán. This was the best visit thus far. Our waiter, Angel, was top notch. I got the Churrasco cooked medium rare at Angel's advice. It was perfectly cooked and very tasty without the chimichurri sauce (which is good too). Highly recommend.

We all enjoyed our meals and with a bottle of wine between 4 it came to about $20 per head. It was recommended to us by friends and I'd recommend it for an upscale meal in Granada.

Some of the best steak we've had in recent memory! And everything else was excellent too, including service for our group of 12. The most expensive restaurant we visited on the trip to Nicaragua, but worth it.
