I read the reviews and were prepaid but honestly. Not existing service, all our food were under cocked and the wallet of our friends was stolen eventhough there are cameras everywhere. Nothing good to say expect to stay away from this place.

Friend and I went out here on both Friday and Saturday night. Saturday night was considerably more packed with locals. Great place to dance and have fun in Granada. Never felt unsafe or out of place.

Quick stop for a beer on a hot afternoon. Friendly owner. Reasonable prices, as is typical of Granada. Heard they are revamping the menu options. Didn't eat there but the beer was cold!

The restaurant claims the best fish and chips in Central America. My fish was not so great. In fairness I think they just can't get the cold water fish like cod or hake and the warm water fish just doesn't flake but turns mushy in places. It may be good for something else on the menu.

I really don't know what to say about this place but Look Out......Service was incredible in a sense that there wasn't any. I never really felt safe in the place even though they had bouncers but I had a feeling that if something happened I wasn't going to win. Enter at your own risk.

We have been patrons of Kelly's Bar since 2010 and always drop in for a drink or two (or three) each time we stay in Granada. We enjoy having shots and cocktails seated at one of the two street side tables, great for watching people. We have frequented the Bar less in our recent visits because they offer fewer selections...

We had 1 hour before we had to catch our taxi, other restaurants were closed, but this one was open for lunch. Being open was about the only good thing they offered. The menu looks professional and the options looked like comfort food I had been missing after several weeks in Nica. We settled on the grilled cheese (comes with... More
