I've eaten several lunches at El Eskimo - not in the more upscale section of the dining room, but the regular seating area. It is an excellent place for a business lunch. The meal itself wasn't anything special - sandwiches and grilled items mainly. But you can't beat the ice cream desserts. The restaurant is indoor and air conditioned. A great place to go to beat the midday heat.

The food is really good there is a huge variety from casual dinning to fancy. If you love ice creams and malts this is the place to go.

i laughed when i read negative reviews on el eskimo. this a place i grew up eating at...and the taste of their food has not changed. i can assure you this is a good thing. it's a feel good restaurant. their burgers and shakes will leave you "happy as the sun, lighter than a feather" (maybe not light...). dessert is pretty much a given at this place, with a cup of hot coffee to end it all, while people reminisce about nicaragua's past. time and time again i will visit this place and feel right at home.

The best dish on the menu is hands down the churrasco. The cut of meat is high quality. I don't know anything about them having different menus in different areas. I sat in the elegant dining area so maybe you have to get the food from that section.

Of course, you MUST try the ice cream! The owners of the ice cream factory own this restaurant and they have ever flavor imaginable on the menu. Of the ice creams, I actually prefer the gelatos the best. My favorite is pistachio. The popular ones seem to be the coffee ice cream and the rum raisin ice cream though. Would definitely come back on my next trip!

First of all, the food is okay, some things in the menu are good but some are bad. The service is good and the environment, for me, is nice. I do like going ther to eat ice cream with my family but that's mostly it...
