I have never been to this restaurant or even Miami, yet they have taken 3 identical card payments from my card, which suggests to be that they must be aware of this being a fraudulent card. Maybe pay in cash if you're visiting.

This place is great..it's usually open. They're not expensive. The plates are big enough to share. There's no menus, but you can ask what stuff is. They have real Nicaraguan drinks. The only downside is that sometimes, rarely, they don't cook the beans thoroughly and they stay hard in the rice, or what they call "gallo pinto".

I found Yambo about 10 years ago. It's close to Little Havana, but a trip to Nicaragua. We took a guest the other evening who had been a Peace Corps volunteer in Nicaragua - he was at home. The mixed appetizer plate serves 4. The fried fish is always a hit as is the pollo asado and beef. And the... More

Great good! NO, AMAZING FOOD! Had the pollo frito with rice and maduros. AMAZING. You must also try the queso frito. They have a salsa on the table and it was amazing, put some on the chicken and the rice and it is delicious. This place can get a line, but they are quick. I was craving Yambo the next... More
