Delicious meal at an absurdly low price. Only problem was finding the restaurant. Until you're at the front door you'll think you're walking down a dark alley. Using a taxi to get there makes sense.

This place was busy with locals and tourists and we could see why. Great thin crust pizza, not such great wine but that is standard for most places in Nicaragua. Service was brilliant and pizza delicious. Our bill was 600 cords for large pizza, large veg salad with garlic bread and half a litre of wine.

The carbonara was excellent also,... More

This is, hands down, the best place for a great meal in Matagalpa. Enjoy the ambiance, the local mariachi bands that come through, and mostly, enjoy the delicious food!
