A friend and I were looking for a good place to eat meat that was not the typical churrasco found in many local restaurants in Nicaragua. We found the Bistro an amazing place that not only offers great gourmet plates but also a beautifully decorated restaurant with a romantic setup for those looking for a candle light dinner!

The waiter's English was not very good which made he misunderstood my order and I got something... More

Last Granada visit, lasting two months, I must have visited more than a half-dozen times. Seldom was disappointed, always delighted by the value. The bistro offers an afternoon special for somewhat over $12. When I returned today it was steaks prepared with blue cheese, over mashed potato rounds. The accompanying salad was garden fresh and delicious. The cocktail special was... More

We've eaten our way through Nica for 3 weeks, and have had some great meals. This was the best in every way...ambience, service and food quality. Would definitely come back.

We had the menu de la semana in restaurant La Estrada. For only 12 dollars you get a salad, a main dish and a dessert. It was a pleasant surprise to find such a good meal for a good price and all of that in a nice restaurant with good staff.

We live in Nicaragua and decided to come here when the family was in town. Four out of five of us got the special with was fajitas and calamari for an appetizer. The calamari arrived with only 10 small pieces in a bed of lettuce with some sort of mush under the lettuce. The strangest part though is that it... More

We had a wonderful dinner here. Actually, we ended up only having appetizers because they were so filling and delicious. The beef with blue cheese was tender and and so flavorful. The escargot was so good we ordered two. Two bottles of wine as well. The three of us enjoyed each and every dish. Service was excellent. We highly recommend... More
