Delicious BBQ and steakhouse

My partner is a bbq afficionado and he really wanted to come here our first night - it was well worth it. Everything that came off their grill was delicious and the service could not be beat. The waiter knew what we were going to ask for before we even asked it the whole night. The steak was... read more

Nice place, didn't have high expectations but was blown away by the quality of the steaks. Took a while to find it as it is nowhere near its google maps location- it's actually only a block away from the main park square

This is one my favorite dining experiences in Grenada! Great steaks and excellent environment. The wait staff was excellent. I loved that you could see the grill upon entering the restaurant. If you get an appetizer I would recommend the Chef's chorizo. Very appetizing!

First time we visit El Zaguan. We went for lunch (party of four; two kids, my wife and myself) and had very nice experience with what we order as well as with the waiters and the place itself. If you happen to go with kids they have a childrens house set so they can get to play a little bit... More

I had been looking forward to returning to El Zaguan and it was totally fabulous. The meats are superb--I had a steak and my husband the mixed grill. The atmosphere is a family friendly, steak restaurant with very nice waiters and staff. It is a decidedly local place--big families celebrating as well as tourists. Just delicious and satisfying.

Busy restaurant with excellent portions and excellent food. Very friendly staff and well-located just off the main park. Worthwhile for sure

Best ceviche I've had outside of Peru. In fact everything here was top-rate. Fresh corvina and nicely presented tostones. Ask for David as your server....very professional. This place came highly recommended from a local and I understand why. Great food and ambiance without extravagant prices.

We went to the restaurant based on a recommendation from our tour guide and our meals were delicious. My chicken kabobs were tasty and filling. Our waiter was attentive and patient with our lack of Spanish speaking ability. We enjoyed our evening meal.
