We stopped by for a snack and cold beer in the afternoon. We weren't impressed. The seafood Ceviche was poor, and and it's overpriced for what you get. The view is great and the beer is frosty cold, but there are literally a dozen other restaurants lined up on the beach with the same views... read more

We had beers on the deck here and watched the sun set over the Pacific. The beers were ice cold almost, but not quite freezing. The deck is very comfortable and service is great. Great place to relax in SJDS!

I have been looking for good Ceviche since I arrived in SDJD. I found it here! The Ceviche was tart, with just the right mix of red and green peppers, as well as onion and cilantro. It was perfect. Maybe, just maybe I will go back for dinner!

Stopped in to watch the sunset and get an appetizer. We tried to order a few different things, but they didn't have any of them. We got coffee drinks from the coffee place inside Josseline's instead.

Terrible, bad food. I ordered "ceviche" and the fish was hard and old, not fresh. Also ordered lobster in a garlic sauce, awful. I don´t like to make bad comments, but this I need to inform. I don´t recommend this restaurant.

Food is good. However, most of it was overpriced because they hiked up the prices for Holy Week and Easter when all the people from Managua and other cities flocked to San Juan Del Sur. I ordered the ceviche Mixto and my mother the Seafood soup, a coke, large bottle of water, and a shot of amaretto. cost me $40,... More

Best lobster around. The only restaurant we go to. They have a policy of not letting vendors enter so it's a peaceful spot with an amazing view. (we live in Nica)

We had dinner here on our last night in Nicaragua - it's a popular spot for locals and tourists alike, located right on the beach. The seafood is so fresh - especially on Wednesdays and Saturdays when the local boats come in from fishing. The carribean style fish is a must try - lightly encrusted with panko and cocount, and...

We spent a morning here and ate lunch as part of our Costa Rica/Nicaragua Monkey Tour. The Monkey Tour bus stops here - and it provides sort of the "home base - meeting point" for the 3 hours we spent in town. We walked around the city a bit, and most of the beach front restaurants seemed very similar. So... More
