To start, the area where the restaurant is located is very convenient close to the new center of town.

The food is fantastic there is not better place in Nicaragua to have better local food than this the portions are very generous and the price is very good the tables are amazing i have never seen an old sewing machine being transform into a table is just brilliant, the service is fast and always with a smile and the typical dress that this beautiful ladies use are the most authentic thing i ever seen.

The place has many areas a nice balcony,the out side and inside sitting and the A/C area which make it so convenient for all taste.

One of the best areas in Managua to have a local taste of Nicaragua.

Nice outside terrace for eating, food good but a lot of fried food. Queso fundido with chorizo and homemade fresh tortillas was delicious!!! Can't order beer before noon though any day.

I am a regular business traveler to Nicaragua. This is an excellent restaurant - traditional Nicaraguan food. Steak has great seasoning, and while it might not be a premium cut, it was grilled and tender. I would highly recommend for families and a more informal business meeting.

This restaurant is a good safe way to eat traditional nicaraguan food. It is located in the center of town so it is very accessible.

We were in Managua on Sunday night . Dona Haydee was recommended by a Nicaraguan friend and our hotel- Casa Naranja. We were able to walk two blocks to the restaurant and had a great table outside near the musician. There was a nice breeze and it was a pleasant dinner. Two of us had the Dona Haydee Special platter which was huge and good.There are some photos of the dishes on the bottom of each menu page. We started out with yucca fries which came with a sour cream dipping sauce. Our waiter was very pleasant and the musician asked us if we had any song requests. This was a great way to end our Nicaragua trip.
