We went to this restaurant on our first night in Nicaragua. It is within walking distance of a hotel (Los Portales) The staff were friendly, the food good and the prices very reasonable. You sit outside under a thatched room. Not fancy but very enjoyable....More

We absolutely love El Paraiso and its rancho design. The food is really inexpensive, very good with many items for selection, and the Karaoke night is great.

Easy to get to location and good local- style food. Outdoor seating only. Very good waitstaff! Only 1 annoying thing...they allow lots of vendors to wander in and try to sell you stuff - big cookies, sunglasses, gum, mariachi bands- gets a little annoying....
