While in Nicaragua, I used trip advisor to help chose where to have diner many times but for some reason I didn't read the comments on Mediterraneo before having diner there, that was a huge mistake! Service was ultra slow and our waiter clueless but...More

Atmosphere is nice, but the food isn't. Maybe you can not expect this restaurant to put haute cuisine on the table, but at least they could use fresh products. Al vegetables came from cans, including the olives. Service was also not very friendly and slow.

The recent reviews of this place are not very good, but I went anyway because of its proximity to my lodgings. I found it delightful. I had the cucumber soup, a margarita pizza and two glasses of the house red for $12USD. Food was good,...More

My daughter, husband and I had New Year's Eve dinner at this spot. It was a lovely location and quiet. There are not many choices for vegetarians but my meat eating companions were happy with their meals. The dessert was not good-we really didn't find...More

Way in the back of this restaurant (past the colonial-style closed in courtyard) is an open courtyard which it seems was taken over from the restaurant that formerly operated next door. It is a lovely spot with tables under the trees. The beer is a...More

We looked for a nice place to enjoy the last evening in Leon, and found this place. I instantly liked the interior, and different rooms, and especially the patio, where we finally sat down. The only negative point here, is, that it was rather dark....More
