Two for one drink specials, typical Nicaraguan food, and outdoor seating. The enchiladas are fried and look similar to empanadas. Strong drinks!

The staff at our hotel recommended this restaurant when we asked to try typical Nicaraguan food. I was hesitant, given that it was on a very touristy street, but I was not disappointed. My husband had the special of the day and I had the recommendation of the waiter. My husband's meal was only 100 cordobas ($6) and was delicious,... More

We were determined to try Nacatamales while we were in Nicaragua. Since we didn't have the opportunity to have them in a local's home, our hotel suggested Comidas Tipicas. Many local Nicaraguan families were also having their Sunday nacatamales here while we were there. DElicious. We had one pork and one chicken. The chicken was a little spicier and our... More

We dined here on our last night in Nicaragua. The waiter was very friendly and made his best attempts to understand our very broken Spanish. He helped us select the best dish for what we wanted (typical Nicaraguan food) - the platter for 2. There was a ton of food that we could barely finish and the price was quite... More

Good healthy food at a great price. Best Nicaraguan food around. There's a great patio area in the rear or you can choose to eat out at street side where a lot of life and activity takes place. The patio area is a great shelter in a heavy rain storm.

We were having a hard time finding a restaurant that didn't cater to tourists-especially on Calle Calzadas. I mean, we didn't go all the way to Nicaragua to eat pasta. Our B&B owner, who is a native Nicaraguan, pointed us to Comidas Tipicas y Mas, and we went back every night for the rest of our stay in Granada. The... More

As the name suggests, the food is typical Nicaraguan...which was exactly what we were looking for...after trying other restaurants nearby...we always ended up coming back to this place for the better and bigger portions...and better prices...everything was tasty, beer was cheap, and staff were super friendly...had we stayed in Granada longer, we would've come back for every remaining meal!

Lots of choices, and yummy food. This restaurant is fairly new and it's on the outside edge of "what's happening" in the main part of town, so it's a little quieter and easy to get a table. It was a nice mix of locals and tourists and after a long night of tonas and mojitos, it hit the spot without... More

Four of us had a great dinner at Comidas Tipicas y Mas in February, 2013. We heard about the restaurant from friends who recommended it highly. There was a varied menu of typical Nicaraguan food and each of us tried a different entree. All of us were pleased and we also really enjoyed the Caipirinhas (rum drink with lime juice).... More

We ate here once, based on recommendations from Trip Advisor. I definitely recommend it for a cheap, local place to eat. I had Nacatamales, which were excellent and my boyfriend had another tipico dish that was equally yummy. I would definitely eat here again. Good place and good to see locals eating at the same restaurant!
