El Zaguan offers a more extensive menu than the Calzada options, and a better quality. Also a good wine list, atmosphere, and overall ambiente with good service and a higher class of restaurant. I love my places on La Calzada, but if you want a quiet meal, away from the ambulant vendors then duck into El Zaguan. I was there... More

Went there for early dinner prior to evening visit to the Masaya Volcano. The food, drinks and service were all EXCELLENT! My wife loved the Chicken Marsala while I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicken Feta! Can't wait to return for a beef dish! One word - Go!

I have spent a good amount of time in Granada and this is by far the best meal I have had. The grilled bread alone is worth the trip. Everyone in our group enjoyed the entree as well. Anything you order will be great! Don't miss this place!

This quaint place in Granada will win you over. The fresh Guapote fish are to die for ! Locally fished from the Cocibolca lake.They are excellent and take 45 minutes to cook. The ceviche appetizer and cheese with tostones was also very good. The service is excellent. Order the Bunuelos for dessert ( must be ordered early ) A local... More

If you are in Granada, you must check this famous steakhouse out. Great chorizo, steaks, fish and chicken - with classic Nicaraguan ceviche, gallo pinto, chorizo and many variations of fresh, free range NIcaraguan beef. This is the only place and country where I will eat meat.

The restaurant is beautiful, the company was amazing - and the service was impeccable. We (party of 6) all enjoyed our meals, and had one of the best times in Nicaragua at El Zaguuan. Will definitely be back.

my local friends took me here, we sat in the back and were treated very well, the steak was excellent and all the trimmings were very good - I went back a few days later and it was not as nice - go with a local and sit in the back

I have eaten at this restaurant many times over the past 5 years but last night was a reminder why I won't go back. Although the service is always good the offerings are dwindling .. the meals are smaller and smaller each time and the prices higher ... but the worse part is that their wine list offers a range...
