Our friends raved about this restaurant, so we all went back. The food was excellent. I had Stuffed Chicken Breast with raisins, walnuts and some type of sauce and baked potato slices and salad. The cost was $11.00. My husband and friends had the Premium Pork Sausages with mashed potatoes and salad for $8.00. What can I say? Good value for your money. Our waiter spoke good English and was very attentive. We had a wonderful evening. This is one restaurant that we would definitely go back to. Remember to make RESERVATIONS. It is a small restaurant in a house. It also has a beautiful garden. Enjoy!!!!

The food at El Colibri is anything but provincial. It is interesting and delicious, served in a cozy indoor/outdoor patio. Good wine to go with great fish and pasta dishes. Try the Chocolate Salami for desert.

Totally enjoyed our meal and time at El Colibri. Sangria was great! Just be sure to make reservations. It is that popular.

Wonderful atmosphere, delicious food, attentive service, tasty sangria, overall a pleasant and relaxing dining experience. I would take friends here and I would eat here again. Make reservations and bring cash. Don't be in a hurry, things are made to order not microwaved and popped on a grill for two seconds to get grill marks. They are slow cooked with care. Best beef that I have had in Nica.

We had high expectations after reading the TripAdvisor comments, and was not disappointed when arriving. The restaurant has a really nice ambience and a cosy environment. Good for romantic couples. The service was also attentive, although english was lacking as usual in Nicaragua.

The appertizers was the best part of the dinner, really good bruschettas but not outstanding. After that we waited a LONG time for the main courses. One meat and one fish dish and both were kind of tasteless. Nothing wrong, quite good but again, just average. The sauce that was supposed to come at the side was also missing.

All in all it's a nice restaurant, especially with Nicaraguan standards, but the food was just average.
