We stopped by here twice for drinks and appetizers and were not disappointed. It's right on the Calzada and not far from the central park. The staff was friendly and the drinks were cold!

This was another great meal in Granada. I had a more traditional Nica meal, while my girls had quesadillas. Be sure to order the cheesecake if they have any left. Delicious!

The service at Nectar was the best part of the experience but the food is incredible as well. Beer is ice cold. The location is wonderful with both outdoor and indoor seating on the pedestrian only street down to the waterfront. Very close to the...More

So on Tuesdays they have this special..... Tacos, nachos, beer or tequila.... $1 each! The tacos are good, the beer is cold and the tequila shots are tall! As per Calzada norm, the service is abysmal but.... Buy more tequila and roll with it :p

They have good food at a decant price with craft beer. Many options to choose from with vegetarian options as well. I was very happy with the food and the service there. I have been there 4times in the last couple of weeks.

Happy hour cocktails drew us in to this place and a good review from the lonely planet book. The mojitos were quite flavourless and had shredded mint which is a no, no. The traditional cocktail wasn't much better either. I hope this flavour skimping was...More

Churrasco and chimichurri are the popular steaks in Nicaragua. The steak size in Nectus was ok but the meat was overdone. Expensive. Calzada street is full of good restaurants but only a few are listed in Tripadvisor ?

Nectar Restaurant & Bar is located on Calle La Calzada, a pedestrian-friendly street in the heart of Granada's historic colonial downtown. Located only 1/2 block East (towards the Lake) of Parque Central & the main Cathedral, our street-side dining offers up the best people watching around while our beautiful covered courtyard provides some peaceful respite from Granada's hustle and bustle. We've got you covered for whatever mood your in. We delight in offering a menu featuring some traditional Nicaraguan fare (Enchiladas, Tostones con Queso, Ropa Vieja and more), wonderful organic salads, tasty ceviche, fish tacos, burritos & homemade desserts, including Cheesecake, Flan de Coco and our world famous Lava Cake. ALL of our rum cocktails are made with Nicaraguan Flor de Cana rum, never the cheap stuff. We also offer up some local Craft Beer, made available by our friends at La Portena in San Juan Del Sur as well as Campo Brew Co. out of Tola. We source all our products locally and shop daily to ensure we have the freshest of the fresh. And perhaps most importantly, our staff is the real thing-- warm, friendly, and genuinely caring. Hard-working Nicaraguan hospitality at its very best! Be sure to check out our 2x1 Happy Hour from 3-6 Daily or stop by and enjoy our below zero beer. Perfect for those hot Granada days!
