Los Ranchos, considered by many the best steakhouse in Managua. But there’s more to this place. For decades Nicaragua’s decision and dealmakers could be met at Los Ranchos. From the Somozas to the Sandinistas, Los Ranchos remained a popular eatery, always at the ready with the best of local food, always providing the right atmosphere, and which some days included...

I loved my experience at Los Ranchos in Nicaragua. I went with a very large group and the servers managed to keep everyone content. I tried the churassco and a fried whole fish, as well as several other things. The food and service was phenomenal.

if you like meat, this is the place for you. The churrasco is a must! The 8 ounce one is more than enough for one person with a great appetite (its pretty big). Service is good, and the ambiance is very casual. a bit pricey compared to other similar restaurants but worth every penny.

This is one of the best places to enjoy a Churrasco. A little far from where Managua is growing which is around the Galleria Santo Domingo area.

If you have never had a steak in Nicaragua, your first stop is Los Ranchos. They always cook you meet to your specific taste (from raw to well done) and they do it so well. El Churrasco cut is the way to go and 8oz is more than enough. If you are feeling very hungry you should go for the... More

Nicaragua is known for its meat, therefore, indulge when you go there. Also, the sea bass and shrimp are really good too.
