“Hidden treasure near Atenas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

Made our first trip to Mirador and we plan to go back many more times. First of all the view is outstanding. The restaurant is very open so it very comfortable climate wise. Our waiter Jerry was very helpful. We all ordered a fish plate. Good sized portions at very reasonable prices.
It is a little hard to find. Turn right at the blinking light heading towards palmares. In San Jose de Sur you turn right at the little store. Follow the narrow road about 2 km and you have made it.

“Favorite in Atenas”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

This is my favorite restaurant in Atenas! The fish with the white sauce is to die for... It is a huge portion (definitely enough left over for another meal), and the prices are reasonable. Add that to the view, and it makes a great experience.

“A nice view and food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2012

we have only eaten there once but we really happy about the food, the service, the price and view. By the way, the portions are huge, so if you do not eat large amounts of food you can easily share one portion for two people, or at least take home your next meal.

“It's the best- if you can find it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2012

I have hesitated coming here in the past, only because friends have warned me that I would end up in Nicaragua before finding this place. So, I did something really innovative and called the restuarant and asked for directions! Guys, it's easy, so read what they told me:
Take the road to Palmares/Grecia, which is just before the flashing yellow light in Atenas. When you hit the fork( left to Palmares, straight to Grecia) go towards Palmares. In about a minute, you will see a football field on the right and then a bar just past it. Hang a right at the bar, and follow that road about 5 minutes and the Mirador is on the right. From the center of Atenas, it's only about 10 minutes.
Once you're here, you'll love the view and the food is terrific. Ask for Heaner to be your waiter. He is married to a Gringa from Miami, and he's a nice guy. Order the fried shrimp, they are like small lobsters! We also enjoyed the Casados with Pork Chops and Grilled Chicken Breast. Delicioso! I hope you find it!
