Took a walk along the beach from our hotel to magnific rock so popped in here just for a cocktail, nice staff, clean place, great view. We were thinking about walking back another time for a full meal but the tide never allowed for it....More

Definitely make a trip up to this restaurant if you’re in the area. It’s an open concept with the best view and a good breeze on a hot day. Food was good.

We stayed nearby at a hotel and came for almost every meal to this restaurant. Everything was delicious needless to say! Make sure you make it out for happy hour for one of the best views of the sunset you can get in popoyo.

The view is amazing, we see the ocean when we eat, the food is super tasty if a bit more pricey than normaly in Nicaragua and the staff are super nice and friendly. A lot of them speaks good english, almost fluently

Rocked into Magnific rock after some peaceful time in Omotepe and was pleasantly surprised to find a similarly peaceful hostel/hotel. Really relaxed vibes and one of the nicest yoga studios I’ve ever seen over looking the ocean, 100% will come back and I sure look...More

The view here is beyond spectacular, looking out over all the surf breaks of popoyo, and south to mountains of costa rica! Burgers were good but not amazing, can't beat that view though!
