This restaurant is a lovely spot for a relaxing and delicious evening dinner. The facility is nicely decorated and is maintained well. Of course, being in Nicaragua, the facility reflects Nicaraguan design and sensibilities. Our food was all delicious. We were very pleased with each of the dishes that we were served. Our meat selections were cooked exactly as ordered.... More

This place is like stepping back to another time. The service is old school with attentive waiters and servers. The food is as good as it gets in Managua. They have a solid wine list as well. On top of that, the place has historical significance and remains a destination for celebrations or business.

ve a long tradition of serving the highest quality meat, with a Lettuce and Tomato Salad plus the best pickled onions in Central America. It is a must if you go to Nicaragua

The food is good but Los Ranchos Tiscapa is better. Like everything this restaurant has suffered the increased in prices with a decreased in the quality of the food and service but still a good place. The churasco is probably 10 to 15% cheaper than an equal restaurant in the States.

Los Ranchos has a connection with many Nicaraguan Families, also this is a place where many of the business ideas that Nicaragua has come to place so they have a rich history and many customers feel a connection to this place. This is my case. Waiters also give a great service I Can mention a few, Don Sergio, Don Martin.... More

My friends and I went on Mother's Day, so it was a lot busier than usual. They were a bit disorganized, and took forever to seat us and give us the menus. However, they were very courteous and we were served our main meal with salad, bread, rice and fries. It is a bit on the pricey side, and to... More
