Went for a couple of beers after our evening meal, staff were made aware that we had already eaten ,yet despite this continued to pester us to eat,even suggesting that we had a desert. When we asked for the bill we were made to wait over 10 minutes (despite the staff stood chatting at the bar) and then charged a price for the beer including service charge when I told them I did not want to pay it-by this time I just wanted to get out ! San Juan del Sur was our sixth destination in Nicaragua and we have visited many bars and restaurants. The attitude of the staff here is the worst we have come across.There are plenty of other good bars in this town.

Had a delicious appetizer and meal at the Barrio Café and also one of the best margaritas we had in San Juan del Sur.

Came across this by accident after having tried two of the more expensive (and overpriced) restaurants on the main street. Although very quiet which made us apprehensive the surf and turf was some of the best steak and prawns I had in 3 weeks in Central America. Staff were very helpful and attentive and the food was well worth the price. Great location right on the beach and high enough up so the sellers cannot interrupt your meal. Highly recommended!

Great place to have breakfast. A little overpriced as most places are in San Juan Del Sur. Good service and great atmosphere.

Great food! Breakfast is great. My favorite dish is the pulpo ceviche. Never had one so deliciouos! The restaurante is very centric in the San Juan town. It has a relax atmosphere. I always visit when in San Juan.
