Nice surprise in Nicaragua

I wasn't expecting to find a Guinness in Nicaragua, but indeed I did. Along with a good Irish stew, the Guinness were a nice change of pace. O Sheas is casual, inexpensive, and has reasonably good food. I ate breakfast and lunch here and enjoyed it both times.

This place was a huge disappointment. It seems to be busy, but most of the places in this concentrated strip of restaurants are usually busy. Our "fish and chips" were nothing more than standard white fish, breaded (not battered) and fried in a pan rather than deep fried. It was just another fish dish with potatoes, not the fish and...

This restaurant is in a line of restaurants and I chose it because it had a sign that stated the best fish and chips in Central America. I knew there was no way they could legitimately claim that, but fish and chips sounded good and was a break from the cuisine I had been having. The service was a little... More

When visiting O'Shea's Irish bar in Granada, it wasn't your usual "Irish bar experience" as you would have with many Irish bars around the world, but then holidaying in Nicaragua is not the usual holiday experience either! Tom O'Shea from Dublin was a great host, the usual warm and welcoming greeting. Service was not great, however the food was great,... More

Great location, lots of life in the street for people watching, fun on Wednesdays when there is a pub quiz that raises money for school supplies for poor rural schools.

Service is bad, but beer is cold..... too bad the food is too. But you can sit and watch the old gringos pick up the young Nicaraguan girls... and wonder why you are there. It is a lively place, but a lot better to be found in the town and you won't support a joint that is a haven for... More

Not sure what the secret is in the fish and chip batter, but it was excellent. And, the tartar sauce had something special about it, too. A very welcome change to have a good plate of food after a loooong time in Central America. I like rice and beans and cabbage salad, but an old fashioned recipe really hit the... More
