“Meat to die for”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We had the filet mignon. It was excellently prepared and tasted delicious --as good as anything you would get in North America. You get a choice of side dishes. Prices were high for some items but filet mignon for $15.00 seemed a good deal for us. Even with the 15% IVA and 10% tip it was reasonable for a special night out.

“Just what the carnivore needs!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

Loved it. Great service, attentive manager, awesome food. If you like fine dining this is the place - to the reviewer who commented on the price....we had the ribs and the special cut, a bottle of wine and 2 after-dinner drinks each and the bill with tax and tip was about $100 - we thought it was reasonable.

“try the new york steak”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Fantastic steaks, particularly the New york one, though not cheap for Managua's standards. The wine list is also quite ok.

“Consistent quality, simple and delicious again and again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Porterhouse is a simple structure and unassuming open air deck on the side of Carretera Masaya, but don't be fooled by the rustic and simple exterior, because this is one amazingly delicious steakhouse. Not only that, but in the emerging foodie circuit of Managua, Marcos Cifuentes, it's ever present owner, has achieved something I yet have to find in many other more established locales, which is CONSISTENCY....it is always great...and if something is not great and fresh and perfect, you can bet they will politely informed you they are not serving it, rather than allow mediocre food to come out of the kitchen. GOOD AND DELICIOUS AND CONSISTENT.

And yes, there is the meat, which is great. I also love the shrimp cocktail, not in the menu, but a classic if the day you go they have great and fresh shrimp available. It's my absolutely favorite shrimp cocktail in all Nicaragua.

“Great Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2013

Outstanding service and some of the best beef you will get in Nicaragua. I've been going to the place for years and have never had a bad experience. The prices are not cheap for Nicaragua, but you get what you pay for.
