El Tercer Ojo is a true Fusion culinary experience in Managua. My first experience with the restaurant was in their first place they had in Granada and I was impressed. It was a nice break from the ordinary offerings in Nicaragua, the atmostphere was a chilling purple haze environment with great food and great drinks.

Their place in Managua is swankier and more upscale. It is situated in what they call the Hippos Zone of the city, which is a strip with many restaurants and bars. They are situated in an old house which the owners renovated and turned into a very nice well decorated place. Although more conventional than the original place in Granada, you can still see the ¨mystique¨ deco which characterized their original place.

The food in general is outstanding. They have a menú which covers just about any and all tastes, from steaks, to sushi, to ribs, all with their own unique taste. The sushi is close to being the best in town, only better sushi than this would be Kioto in the Barceló hotel but it is far pricier.
They have a superb Churrasco (Premium tenderloin) served in a bed of mased potatoes, great creps and a out of this world seafood salad.

The appetizers are great also but they are on the pricier side and are not very generous. They have a mouth watering mussels platter in garlic and White wine sauce but has the generosity problem. Manchego and serrano ham platters and on special occasions they have off the menú appetizers that will rock your culinary spirit.

Drinks are very expensive, but you can get happy hours for most of the week at early hours that will get you two for one deals on run, vodka and wines.

All in all it is a superb culinary experience, but it is on the pricier side of local restaurants. If you are like me who like wining and dining this willl place will set you back significantly for nicaraguan standards, but wont let you down. The service is good, and it is open for lunch, dinner, and after hour party occasions. They also have a very nice VIP room in the back for private parties.

Great place, highly recommended if you want a break from the conventional Nicaraguan offerings. Great for a first date, small group party, or to hang out with friends.

When the food came out, it looked too good to eat. It was so pretty with shells, and flowers, and tasted incredible. A busy place, the service is a bit slow, but faster than typical service in Nicaragua. The drinks were well made, and nicely garnished. A nice option in Managua, when you are looking for something other than typical fare.

I don't recall having eaten Mediterranean food before, so I didn't what to expect. I'm not much of a Fan of salty food with fruits and wish I had order something else, but the presentation (plate and restaurant) was excellent and the service was good, so, I'll probably come back again and I'll try something else (no fruits, hahaha).

They make your plate look like art using natural items like coconut shells. It was so beautiful and when I ate it, it was really very delicious. The atmosphere was very nice too. And I really like the wine they had by the glass. The waiter was also very friendly, had a beautiful smile.

I had a Philadelphia roll and some thai curry chicken, and both were outstanding. Very nice setup, very friendly and hard working wait staff. If I go again, though, I'll ask not to sit on the patio because we had kids come by playing obnoxious drums not once, but twice asking for money, and they wouldn't leave us alone. Thankfully the staff kept them from coming onto the patio but there was nothing they could do about the ones screaming from the sidewalk.
