Excellent dinning experience with friends

Excellent food and nice place, just close to the main church of Granada. We enjoyed it. I went three times in one week, which reflects my satisfaction plus of my friends. Highly recommended.

I ate with ten other folks (four local and six Americans) upstairs in the private room on a Wednesday evening. The appetizers were uninspiring. The menu selection was good. I had the Filet Mignon wrapped in bacon. Not sure it was what the U.S. considers a filet, but it was a good cut of beef and well prepared. Service was... More

This place is very nice if you would like to have some great steak and maybe celebrate something special while you're in Granada. We went for our friends anniversary. They offer lots of wines and cocktails. My husband and I shared a filet mignon wrapped in bacon with a mushroom reduction over the top. It comes with wonderful bread, potatoes,... More

Our steaks were excellent although a little more cooked than we asked for. Red wine is served cold as is common in this part of the world.

Best meat I had in a while. We did a one day tour from Costa Rica and our guide took us here. The service was excellent, the ambiance cozy and the food superb.

Food is the best in Granada....if you want to taste up-scale Nica food, this is the place. Steaks, in their own right as good as anyplace. Service never misses a beat and the atmosphere is bustling but not overpowering. Get something from the grill.

The restaurant is located on a quiet street directly behind the cathedral. The staff is attentive and the food is delicious. Like most of Granada, it is not air conditioned; but the ceiling fans do the trick.

Great steak house. Go here for really good steaks grilled over wood fire at reasonable prices (compared to NYC). Way different than US beef. Good wine pairings, mostly from south America.

I was told this is the best restaurant in Grenada, and perhaps Nicaragua. I can't argue with that. The steak i ordered was cooked to perfection and the service was excellent. Credit cards accepted.
