“Beautiful setting!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

We loved the menu at colibrí which had tons of very different options including many steaks and vegetarian options. Everything we had was excellent. Definitely one of the best places we've eaten in Nicaragua. It's a little more expensive, but no more than the places on the beach and has way better food. We're only here a week but we are already talking about going back.

Great Mediterranean place right near the house we rented. Very charming patio seating. Great for groups or a romantic date.

“Treat Yourself, You Deserve It”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2013

We ate supper here recently and really enjoyed the place. My wife had the kabob entree and we were both impressed. I ordered the filet mignon, but was disappointed with the cut of beef. Not what I consider a filet cut. The taste was still very good as was all of our sides. The ambiance/atmosphere is perfect for couples and a candle. The mixture of decor will keep you occupied while waiting on you meal. Service was good. I consider this place expensive for Nica. Overall Very Good Rating

This is a great restaurant with great food and great service. I've never been disappointed when I came here. The prices are great considering the atmosphere and the food. Get the sangria. It's tasty.
