My wife and I were there 4-5 times for the reasonably priced drinks and snacks. We would definitely recommend Monkey's as a nice place to chill.

Went with family and it was a nice place to eat and get a drink. Nothing special there other then it seemed to be a safe location to exchange money with local money handlers.

This place is very good located right in the main square of the city, it has a good ambience and you can enjoy of live music on wednesday and weekend. Food always takes a long time and the quality is very poor. The most expensive beer in the city and the worst overpriced wine (Lazo).

Went here to listen to live music. Our waitress/bartender made great drinks and was pleasant. The appetizers were just mediocre but that's not why we'd choose a place like Monkeys

Great place to relax and watch the world go by. Excellent view of the adjacent street life with cold beer, drinks and good food. Love the fun decor.

When we arrived, they had just opened after their prayer group. We went for an evening cocktail. The food was tasty but a bit overpriced. Strange layout.

Música en vivo (Nicaraguense tradicional), buenos nachos, cerveza fría, el ambiente al aire libre, rica decoración en madera, con vistas del Parque Morazán.
