We were looking for good food but not too pricey, and found this place! We had platos ejecutivos, for 200 and 270 cordobas and we had more than enough food, which was tasty and well cooked. The waiter there took his time to explain to us what was on the menu, he was very helpful and kind! Would recommend!

We sat outside on the terrace. The perfect place to watch the world go by. The waiters were very attentive and the food was excellent. I had chicken with ham and cheese in with mushroom sauce and it was delicious. Hubby had steak with Nicaraguan parsley sauce, he said it was the best steak he had tasted, even better than... More

El mas caro restaurante en todos mis viajes de año y medio! No vale la pena! Muchas veces he comido camarones mucho mejor que cuesten mucho menos! The most expensive restaurant I've been to in a year and a half of traveling and not worth the cost! The food really wasn't particularly good. I've had far better shrimp for far... More

If you want authentic and tasty food in Esteli, consider Cohifer. They make a grilled chicken breast with sauces and a bunch of sides that is awesome. So is the traditional pounded steak.

The food wasn't bad but I had a better lunch for C$110 (cordobas) per person at a buffet the next day.

I was excited by reviews and was thoroughly disappointed. The service was great, the beer was cold, but the food was much worse than anything I could've gotten at a local buffet. Greasy, sticky whole fried fish with a weird bread crumb mix and the beets in the salad weren't cooked or pickled. Not going back.

Great food...great service...a little pricey for the area, but you can't beat the quality. First night I had, off the menu, flank steak on a sizzling plate with all the fixings. It was delicious. The second night I had the whole red snapper and it was very good as well. I was told they have the best fish in town.... More

Good food but the service was very poor. Not a bad place for dinner overall. Prices on the high side.
