there is a variety of nicaraguan plates at this place. Food is good but kind of expensive, i rather go to another place to get more flavorful food and cheaper. I could bet that you pay at this place for cleanness and presentation

Quaint restaurant with nice decor inside and out. Inside area has a/c. Nice outdoor seating on the front patio garden like area. The service was great and the food was tasty. I had the carne asada. It was cooked as ordered and very tender.
