Consistently good steaks

One of my go to restaurants if I want to have a good steak. Potatoes and small salad are tasty as well. Can get crowded in there so go early

You get good food, though not very typical from Nicaragua. Staff is helpful and nice. But it's overly pricey for Nicaragua... we had better lunch in the city.

Wonderful! The eggplant parmigiana appetizer was great. The steaks are the best I have had in Nicaragua. Service was impeccable

Sometimes traveling alone and eating alone you get much less service the the couple or the foursome. This was true last night at El Zaguan. Having just spent 3 weeks traveling Nicaragua this was by far the most expensive restaurant. But I was more disappointed in the service. Guess I don't like being ignored spending a lot of money. I...

Crazy juicy thick cuts of filet/tenderloin. Rivals or beats the best flavor anywhere in the country of Nicaragua.

You go here for the steak. It's delicious. Not cheap (nearly all steaks 500 cordobas) but it includes bread, salad and rice (if you want it). Our bill for 3 Tona beers, 1 chorizo and 2 steaks came to 1450 including tax and voluntary tip. Service was pretty good. It won't be your cheapest meal, but for a special meal... More

Just a great meal for lunch, very busy spot and excellent service!!! This place was recommended by locals and it was great!!! All meats were grill on wood charcoal, tasty, fresh and perfect. Cost was low and certainly a spot to go back to for us.

We read about this place on Trip Advisor and I knew it was our first stop for dinner when we arrived in charming Granada. We liked it so much we ate there for 3 nights in a row! On the Friday night they even had entertainment. While there I left my wallet (credit cards, drivers license etc.) I didn't miss... More
