“for tourists, but OK”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

nice try to serve salads (and many other dishes that usually you do not find in Nicaragua, including Indian Dal), even if the vegetables in this country are not that good, so the result is not great. Freindly. Good atmosphere (despite the energy saving cold lights).

“So-So, Pretty Touristy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

This place was full of gringos - with only a few locals there, and those with gringos as well. The service was slow, the food only ok, and pricier than it needed to be. The bathrooms -- filthy. So much so that my friends and I worried about the cleanliness of the food. I don't think I'll return.

“Gringo hangout”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

Lots of people pass by or hang out - mostly tourists. The food is nice although a bit expensive if you don't go for the "local" dishes. Staff is friendly and helpful - the wifi signal is weak.
