The atmosphere is really nice and soothing. The food is excellent and we even ordered desert. The platters are small but the food is amazing. Service was on point.

This place has everything, the location is really pretty it has place in the A/C (I personally prefer this area because it´s really well decorated) and out in the terrace, the food is very original and really really good. You will have a great experience if you love trying out a different kind of meal. Healthy and delicious, enjoy!

This is a family-owned restaurant that started in Jinotepe, then made the move to Managua several years ago. Those of us who live in the city are very fortunate they are closer! I agree with another reviewer that the menu is different from most other offerings to be found, and what a nice change that is. The food is high... More

This restaurant offers a variety of seating environments. We opted for an indoor table facing a glass enclosed terrarium - beautiful. The service was top notch and the menu offered a nice variety. Meals were elegantly presented and delicious. The servings were just right and the prices very reasonable.

The food was amazing. If only the portions were bigger. I could have ate 3 plates, both because the food tasted great, and also because there wasnt much on the plate. The prices dont seem terrible, until you see the small portions. Both my wife and I savored every bite though. I would recommend the place, except our bill came... More

Came here from a recommendation and found it excellent. I was there for lunch. Had a salmon appetizer, and then the fish filet in vapor (steamed), and my friend had salmon chipotle. Everything was excellent. Great service, the owner stopped by several times to make sure we were happy. And they have several big rooms with A/C when it is... More

We visited Layha for lunch with family in January 2016. As far as first appearances go, the restaurant is quite trendy in terms of its decor and feel. The menu was well sized and had enough options for us to feel as though there was a good choice. Presentation of the food was well thought through and the taste of... More

I disagree with Ian S's review below. The food was excellent, full of flavour and fresh. The service was also great with a great atmosphere near the bar. Whenever im in Managua, I always go to Layha to try out one of their new dishes. Highly recommend!
