The food may have been mediocre because we were there late and the only people there. The carpaccio was delicious… Well actually, even though it was raw beef and raw salmon it all tasted exactly the same because it was in a pool of vinegar...and covered with onions and capers. It was delicious. I love vinegar and capers and raw fish and beef. The pork was so dry that it was like leather. My salad was very good.More

No doubt, El Nogal is the best restaurant in Chinandega. The chef in charge has a particular cuisine and all the courses I have tried (at least 6) are declicious. I do not eat beef, so I am sorry to say that beef-based cuisine is...the main speciality here. However, they have delicious options for poultry, seafood and vegetables lovers. The service is at the same level of the cuisine: superb. This is not a cheap place, but prices are rather fair for the quality of the food and the environment. You get what you pay for.More

The air conditioned dining room was a welcome change for lunches on hot days. Good range of options on the buffet. Excellent food. Good value for the price. Will go back again next trip/

I had heard great things about this restaurant from some friends. So I decided to take the opportunity to take a good old friend to dinner. The decor and atmosphere was nice, but I do believe that the tv in the dinning room takes away...from the feel. Last thing I want to have playing in the background is a tv playing ghetto music when I'm supposed to be enjoying a fine dinning experience. Our waiter was excellent, he went about and beyond to make our visit memorable. Unfortunately, then things started going bad I asked for my steak to be served medium rare and instead it was served medium well. I told the waiter that my steak was over cooked but to no avail. Nothing was done to correct or compensate me for their mistake. Their wine selection was very limited. We ordered a reserva from Spain and the first bottle was chilled as if it was a bottle of champagne fortunately they had a second bottle they they had not put into the refrigerator. Overall it's a decent place to have dinner, just don't expect a fine/gourmet dinning experience.More
