On a recent business trip to Granada, I asked several locals where to go for a good meal on my last night in Colonial Granada. Everyone responded with El Zaguan. After a little confusion on my part (I thought they were saying El San Juan) we were off in the right direction. Just off the square, safe area, Great food!... More

I seldom write reviews except when I totally disagree with the average rating. This is one of those cases. I went to this restaurant 3 times with my wife. The first time the food was excellent. I had the best steak I ever had and my wife had an excellent chicken dish. The second time was a couple of days... More

I have been here several times. From all of those times, I just had a bad experience with the service once. Other than that, I have to say the food is very good, especially the steaks and typical dishes. They have a very varied menu. For the average nicaraguan, it is quite expensive, but the food is worth it. They... More

Eat here every time I am in Granada (about once a year for the past 5 years) and look forward to each each and every time. The food is spectacular, although expensive for Nicaragua, but worth every penny. Steaks are awesome, and the appetizer of hand hand made sausages is great. Use this place as your "treat night" on your... More

This restaurant is among the best in Central America. It´s difficult to find really good restaurants in Granada. Thisis probably Granadas best restaurant. The food was very good and in the same league as in Antigua, Mexico or Belize. The service was good and price level comparable to Antiguas best restaurants.

The food was delicious it's not traditional Nicaraguan food but it tastes good. The ambience was very nice and inviting. It was pricier than I expected but worth it.

This restaurant was so good!! I am a foodie and appreciate a passionate chef and staff. Homemade sausages, fresh salsas, great wine list too. So good that I went a few times during my short stay in this amazing city. Thank you for the great steak and sangria! !!

Visited for dinner - a favorite spot to visit. The ambiance is very nice- but definitely touristy (you will see mostly Americans here). On that note- the ice and salads are safe to eat. The meals can be a but pricey, but the portions are a good size- the Macau and mojitos are fabulous!!!!
