Great food-- even for vegetarians

Went to this restaurant for dinner on the recommendation of the concierge at the hotel. When we arrived we realized it was a steak house - great for my boyfriend but more difficult for me (vegetarian). Our waiter was really great and when I asked about a couple menu options, he suggested their... read more

I loved my meal here. Everything is cooked on the woodfire grill and I ate one of the best cooked fish of my life here. Service was incredible. We wanted to sit a bit further away from the fire so they reorganized a table in the courtyard for us. We had the local sampler, a caprese salad, and all was... More

From the rustic decor to the superb service, any visitor will feel right at home in this casa of culinary delight. Although every dish we tried was a real treat, from the onion soup to the house made sausage, it was the filet that stole the show, with its buttery tenderness and perfectly smoked flavor. If you are looking to... More

The meat is locally sourced and they know how to prepare steak. I book ended my month long trip to Nicaragua with stops at El Zaguan. Crazy good!

It's a good place with a nice decor and a friendly staff if you can track one down. To me this place was way over priced for the quality of the meat. I'm not trying to be cheap but I don't want to get hosed on a piece of meat because I'm a gringo. It is what is...

I have had trouble finding good fish in Granada. The grilled fish here is very basic but excellent. Service is exceptional. A little pricier, but then all of Granada is getting more expensive. Dinner for two just one glass of wine, water and soda $36

Great food, steaks are amazing, service is great. Very affordable for what you get (would cost twice as much in the states)

Me and my wife came here for dinner on our first night in Nicaragua and we were not disappointed. The restaurant was full but we managed to get a table pretty quickly. The venue had a great atmosphere and we felt at ease straight away. We ordered our food (steak with jalapeño sauce and chicken kebab) and sat back with... More

El Zaguan came highly recommended by many of the locals. I think it is the place they think all tourists need to eat, so they can at least say they ate there while they were in Managua. The service at El Zaguan is very good - everyone was very nice and accommodating. The food was plentiful - this was definitely... More
