“Average food/terrible service/cold food in group of 5/also refusal to resolve stone found in food w'out fuss.”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

Went in group of 5 for dinner.
My food was quiet nice. I had baladas. Those who ordered burritos got it cold. There were 3 of those orders. The fifth person ordered something else and this arrived more than 20 minutes after the other meals with no apology and a small stone/ grit was discovered in it.

As a group we decided, we would not pay service charge as it was terrible and got worse.

We also would not pay for the meal with a stone in.

To our surprise, at first this was refused. We asked to speak to the person in charge and they told us no one was here.

Eventually, it was reluctantly accepted that we pay as set out above.

“Slow service.”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Very slow service in this (overrated?) restaurant, although is wasn't busy at all.
I did like the atmosphere, a pleasant mix of locals and tourists.

“Cafetin Hospitaje”
Reviewed November 19, 2012

That's what it is more than a coffee shop. I is a good place to have fun, drink a little and there is some live music sometimes so it can be ok for a night or two. As far as the staying is concern it is a very well known spot for backpakers so if you are a clouple looking for privacy and silence it may not be for you but if you are the other kind of traveller that,s the place. Enjoy !

“not the best but not the worst.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

As a local is nice to hang out in this type of ambiance where is a nice mix of foreign and Nicas the food is not the best and takes a bit of time but the menu is big, has a lot of options from all around Central America and more, the service is pretty good but when closing time is getting closer they can get a bit mean sometimes. but still a nice place to hang around BTW you have to be a good pool player if you want to give a try here.
