Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours
Description: Open for Breakfast, Lunch, & Dinner, Tranquilo Cafe offers delicious and refreshing alternatives to the standard Central American "rice & beans" fare: Fresh Kingfish Ceviche, juicy Cheddar Cheeseburgers, catch-of-the-day Fish Tacos, marinated Chicken Fillet sandwiches, Quesadillas, House-made Chips and Guacamole, Vegetarian/Vegan options, and nightly Dinner Specials. With a recently added back-yard BBQ Smoker, we now feature succulent Baby Back Ribs, juicy Pulled Pork, and Mojo Chicken platters, along with our own BBQ sauce, and fresh made sides including our own fresh Corn Bread. Also featuring fresh brewed Nicaraguan Coffees (hot & iced varieties) and Espresso, fresh-made local fruit juice drinks, made-to-order fruit/yogurt Smoothies (including Minga's special; Banana-Avocado w/cinnamon and vanilla), daily-baked Cookies, Brownies, Banana Bread & Carrot Cakes, Ice Cream desserts, and much more. Famous for our Bonfire Parties, we're also the island night spot. A great laid back atmosphere, with a variety of music from all over the world (including local DJ Nights and live cultural music/dance groups). It's a terrific place to meet up with other fun-seeking travelers. Come early to our Happy Hour (5-7 pm), and check out the drink specials; Rum Punch, Sangria and many 2 for 1 rum drink deals. Also, the widest selection of imported beers on the island. Our deck is located right on the beach on the front side of the island, between the 2 dive shops, with a great view for sunsets and people watching.

This place has a really good atmosphere. It has the best wi fi for sure. The food was good. We walked from the other side of the island a couple times. One night they had a bon fire. We really enjoyed it here. Just a fun place.

Easily the best bar and restaurant on the island and the staff are the primary reason for this. They create a very warm and welcoming environment and are acutely attentive to the service. The food is delicious. Tuesday trivia is brilliant. The live music on Wednesdays brings in a great mix of locals and tourists. Bonfires on Wednesday and Saturday nights were my favorite. Definitely a must-see when you're on the island. It also doesn't hurt that all the bartenders are really sexy...

We went for my birthday celebration, just to spend the day and ended up staying the night. The music, the food, the people! I just can't describe how much fun I had in this place! Loved every minute! Thanks so much for singing happy birthday with ice cream and a candle!
