We came here on Feb. 22, 2017 based on Trip Advisor reviews. Although is not number one, we decided to give it a try! We did not regret our visit. I ordered steak which was cooked just the way I like it, not too well done, not raw either. Service was good not great but good. Place was a little... More

We found a number of references to this restaurant including trip advisor. One person said is was expensive, another reasonable. It's all very subjective. We found it reasonable if not down right cheap. Our server,Juan Jose Altammirano was the one that helped us order as the menu is in spanish only. We were about to order meals that would be... More

I enjoyed a delicious full steak dinner, cooked exactly as I asked. Vegetables were fresh and well seasoned and beef was tender and delicious. The service was outstanding. Ambiance is very good.

Excellent surf and turf combos, chicken dishes, very good Chilean wine with attentive service in a colonial courtyard restaurant. Stylish place to impress the ladies with greenery and fountain.

I loved the ambiance at night time.They serve great finger foods like my favorite chicken wings, which were delicious. I also liked that on certain days they have live music. This is definitely a place to come if you want to listen to music and drink some cold beers and sit with friends.

Great grilled meats, a few veggies, avoid the terrible ice cream they offer for dessert. Spacious, beautiful restaurant that surrounds a courtyard garden, service is solicitous and more efficient than often found in Nicaragua.

I had a churrasco at Al Carbón which was amazing. The meat was tender, and oh so tasty. The atmosphere is great too, with a beautiful courtyard and decoration. I look forward to going back!

My daughter and I had been eating mostly vegetarian food since coming to Nicaragua. We were looking forward to grilled meat at Al Carbon and ordered the Mixed Grill for 2. Huge platter of food with steak, chicken, pork and chorizo sausage, 2 salsas, potatoes, salad and plantain. We had enough to take back to our hostel for sandwiches the... More

Had a grilled corvina with a garlic sauce, I added veggies because they were no part of the meal. The fish was accompanied with rice and potatoes (too many carbs for my taste). I drank a taste lemonade, although I think they charged for each refill. Service was very good and prompt. I titled it pricey because I paid about... More

My son and I went to Al Carbon twice on this trip to Leon. We had the "Al Carbon para dos" - a special for 2 people. It has grilled beef, pork, and chicken, with sauces and accompaniments. It was plenty for the two of us, and we enjoyed each bite. In fact, we liked it so much that we... More
