Found this place our first night in Leon, food, drinks and service were all great, I ordered the chicken with satay sauce which was a winner. Cocktails were tasty and it wasn't too expensive. Tried to go again another night but it was closed, we may have gone too early.

Looked for this place my first night in Leon based on other reviews for not having blasting music. Good music, relaxed atmosphere, good service. I tried the Potato Skins (recommended on the menu) and they were just OK. Very small potatos, some halves did not have the potato scooped out. On the other hand, the chicken quesedilla was EXCELLENT.

Little Bar with good music , good atmosphere, cocktails are ok, national rum ++. I prefer this kind of bar than the loudy ones than you can find in the center city.

Cool spot in Leon for a few drinks and appetizers. The courtyard location is nice, and definitely give the tostones sliders a try!

We stumbled upon this place looking for a 'snack' supper and some good drinks. The place was quiet, but the music was chill and excellent vibes. Chicken wings were huge, and the drinks were fantastic! Menu was in English which is always a bonus too :) lol

This is a great place for food and drinks that's reasonably priced. It's a unique Nica take on tapas and a nice atmosphere.

I'm at Antorchas at least one night a week if not more. It's a great bar, lovely and chill with covered seating and out door seating. It's intimate, has great music (not live), the food is delicious (get the big combo plates), and they have great cocktails as well as the standard Tona's, Victorias, and Flor de Cana. The staff...

Antorchas is a chill bar with good food, cold drinks and an awesome staff. It has a unique vibe compared the other bars in town and its a good place to hang out with friends and listen to some great music.

I really like Antorchas for both drinking at the bar and having a nice meal at one of their tables. The patio is fresh and the second floor, which seems like it's only open on the weekends, is really neat, too. They do a good job mixing Nica-American foods, like the tostonburgesas. You should definitely check it out.
