Didn't have food when we went.

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

I ordered calamari for lunch seeing as the bar is right on the ocean. The calamari was OK, a little rubbery, but the garlic sauce it came with was borderline rancid and the frozen fries tasted as if they were cooked in oil that hadn't been changed in weeks. Hands-down the worst meal I had in Nicaragua. But the beer... More

I went looking for some place to have lunch, next to the beach, with view to the bay. They have few customers, It wan't a susprise as it is low season. We were looking for fish, they have whole deep fried fish. This is the traditional Nicaraguan fish next to the beach with a sauce of tomatoes and onions. The... More

I'm not sure why this place isn't ranked higher in TA, because the food here was delicious! The coconut shrimp is to die for. They also had a prime location on the beach with some great views of the bay, highly recommend!
