The place came recommended by friends who live in Nicaragua, and we were not disappointed! My wife had filete mignon and I had a tenderloin covered in sweet onions. Both were in the top five percent of any steaks we have ever had. The price for two steaks and drinks was less than $50.

El Zaguan is so good, my wife and I ate dinner there twice during our six nights in Granada. The steaks are perhaps the best we have ever had. Cooked to perfection over wood, the meat is tender and incredibly flavourful. The setting is very nice (my only criticism: lose the TV) and the staff are very professional if not... More

If you know how to enjoy a world class restaurant, you will love this place. Service, food, attention to detail are on par with many restaurants we have enjoyed all over the world from Dubai to New York. The beauty of El Zaguan, of course, is the incredibly reasonable prices for great food and wine. The trick is to be... More

We've been there a couple of time, their fish and meat are really nice. Service is not bad (for Nicaragua) and the atmosphere is simple but nice. The price is a little too much but the taste of the food is good at least for the main plates. The starters were not really amazing.

We went here for romantic honeymoon dinner based on tripadvisor.com and New York Times reviews. We were seated in the bar, despite our request to sit in the garden and being the only patrons in the place. We ordered two steaks, medium, on the blaze recommendation of our waiter. The cooks rang the bell for our food for five minutes... More

I ate dinner here three times in one week. It's very well priced. They use filtered water for the ice- which I had no problems with. The filet mignon with mushrooms was the best. They wrap a piece of bacon around the outside of it. Superb!!

Definitely one of the best steaks I have ever had, melts in your mouth. Nice ambiance too. Service is courteous, can be on the slower side when it's busy, but then again with all the heat outside you can't be in that much of a rush.
