Incredible space, great service and excellent presentation! The pepper appetizer was flavorful, the wine that the server recommended complimented it perfectly. Both our steaks were well seasoned and cooked precisely. Their wine selection was impressive and if I enjoyed cigars I would have indulged in an after dinner session. I have always used yelp for my reviews but opened a... More

Amazing, authentic colonial atmosphere that is upscale and relaxed at the same time. Our ribeye steak was cooked to perfection and the Caesar salad was fresh, vibrant and very flavorful. The service was overall outstanding and they were very accommodating as we brought our own bottle of wine. Following dinner we went to the lounge and we both enjoyed a... More

I first heard of Ciudad Lounge & Restaurant from posts I seen on Facebook. I have traveled to Nicaragua many times over the years and I love to discover unique places to eat & drink. I most often stay clear of the Typical Gringo Owned Businesses, but I was pleased I stopped by and enjoyed a delicious meal, cold beers... More

What an oasis in the beautiful city of Granada. This place has to be visited,fantastic food most of which is sourced locally. The owners are great hosts and can cater for all your food needs. They have a great range of cigars from Nicaragua including mombacho and Roma craft. You can see the chefs preparing the food and I had... More

Absolutely great place in so many ways. I had the best steak in Granada here and my friend raved over the Chicken in a mole sauce. We tried the wine tasting with imaginative and tasty appetizers (only 7 bucks, heck of a good deal!) before dinner and had a great time trying some surprisingly good Australian wines, the Riesling was...

The drinks, appetizers, and main courses are unbeatable! Each dish was beautifully presented and had a wonderful range of flavors. We went back for their rum tasting too - a fun, tasty education! I didn't know rum could taste like a smooth bourbon, and wouldn't have tried this signature Nicaraguan drink otherwise. Thanks for the wonderful service as well!

After reading reviews I had to try the tasting or see what the fuss was about. Worst and most expensive two sips I've had. Better yet they overcharges us and had to call them out for it. Would never recommend nor amazed they have any positive reviews. I was refused the bar when no one was sitting there. Flor de... More

"Sir," the Flor de Caña you and your friend ordered is the 25 year old Family Reserve Single Casket Rum - at $15 for 2oz it is a bargain.

Whenever we have VIP customers or people we wish to impress we always take them to Ciudad Lounge in Granada where Chef William Lopez and Noemi always exceed our expectations. They are very professional, understand how to work with businesses like ours and tend to our clients very well. The food is outstanding and reminds me of something you would... More

After living here for past 2 years, this places is still one of my favourites in the city.

We found Ciudad Lounge by chance... I was looking for cigars, and the restaurant was just a block from our house. We popped in to check it out and went back 4 times in 5 days. They do a wine tasting on Fridays, and it's a bargain--7 dollars (usd) for 5 sample glasses and 3 "bocas." The wine the Friday... More

Description
Our menu is small in quantity, but big in taste. 6-7 Appetizers & 5-6 main plates, ranging in price from $10USD-$28.

We are changing culinary style and service in Granada, Nicaragua. We are possibly the most expensive restaurant in Granada - but we do not compete with any restaurant in Granada.

Warning: if you are traveling on a tight budget, please do not come to Ciudad Lounge as you will be terribly dissapointed and we will be sad that you couldn't enjoy our full range of offerings and this - what is almost 100% of the time a wonderful dining experience - will end up on this site as an experience from hell, due to the economic shortcommings of a client, that should not reflect on the style and performance of our restaurant.

Average style-lounge-dining experiance is about $40/pp We assure you that your meal and time spent at Ciudad Lounge (average 3 hours) will be among your top 5 lifetime restaurant experiences.

Welcome to the New Nicaragua
Your Hosts Noemi & Chef Puro
