“Unexpected Excellence!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

We ate at El Gueguense after being recommended to it by our hotelier at Hotel Internacional just 1/2 block away. At first I was leary that he had some connection and that it wouldn't be great, but honestly, in hindsight, it ended up being on of the best meals we had in Nicaragua!

I will say that it was the only restaurant we ate at in Managua, as the remainder were spent in San Juan (for which I was very dissappointed in the food quality overall, with a few exceptions.)

The food here was local and basic, but super tasty, well cooked and it was a fun place to be at with great drinks!

“excellent beef, at a fraction”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

If you want to enjoy the best of Nicaraguan beef at affordable prices, this is the place. Their breaded fish fillet is really good also. Asados El Gueguense is not fancy by any means, but rather closer to where the average Nicaraguan middle class family would go for dining out. An added plus is that they have Nicaraguan folk music live, from Thursday thru Saturday. Nice typical environment in the heart of Managua.
