We were here for lunch as part of a group of 11. Considering that we had just walked in off the street it didn’t take that long for us all to be served. The menu was pretty good - the majority of choices pork themed....More

The place is nicely decorated in a rustic style. The staff is pleasant and attentive without being overbearing. The pork was delicious and we were served some chips/salsa while we waited. Which isn't common in Nicaragua. Definitely returning for a special occasion, as it's on...More
