Friendly staff, great food and prime location. Breakfast, lunch and dinner El Sesteo was our place to go. Located right in the heart of Leon (Cathedral and Central Park).

We had an amazing meal in this great Leon restaurant. We had many traditional Nicaraguan dishes that were delicious. The service was a little slow, but the food made up for it all.

Our go-to spot for coffee, lemonade or a cold cerveza and/or a bite to eat anytime in Leon! The people-watching is great and the location is central to almost everything you might want or need. We felt like we could be in Spain or France...More

OMG. Get some rhythm. A troop of vagrant children somehow got ahold of drums and decided to put on a show in front. It was very unpleasant. The banana leaf corn type of tamale was very good. And the beer special was very economical.

Right at the heart of this intellectual and humid city is located “El Sesteo” a nice setting with a nice view and a unique decoration. The food is nice has a good variety of things, Local food, Mexican, Sea food (ocean is only 20min away) and international cuisine, Service is pretty good and all of the walls are decorated with the local dance, folklore and most important people of Leon one of them Ruben Dario Father of the modernism and prince of the Spanish language.They are open for lunch and dinner and probably have the best view of any restaurant in Leon, have a nice breeze that run through the place and a nice view to the street which you can see the locals walking around the main square.Go and enjoy this place and give a try to local own places.
