This restaurant can get really very busy, and difficult to get seated at during the busiest times, usually early afternoon. The food is typical Nicaraguan and generally tasty. Drinks are a bit over priced.

Nicaraguan food is served here and the quality is very good. On week ends there is live music witch makes the place more enjoyable, if you are in Managua stop for this charming joint.

One of our favorite restaurants in Managua, especially for introducing visiting family and friends to Nicaraguan food. Always excellent food and service. Live music (acoustic guitar/singer) most nights. Lovely outdoor patio seating. They recently renovated the patio with updates but still the exact same feel.
