“simple and delicious”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This charming restaurant is a good surprise, the staff is friendly and attentive to customers, the food is great, I had a fish filet with passionfruit sauce, yummy, the chocolate mousse for dessert is to die for, the outside garden area is really relaxing. Get a try its just a good time to go through!
Thanks to the subtle french touch that has opened this place.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

My girlfriend an me have been there twice in 24h. Anything more to say? Good, fresh food, friendly and fast service (in other places you wait almost 1h for a smoothie..) and you get enough to eat (not too much, but enough). And it is affordable. Sure, you can eat for half of the price in other restaurants where only locals go. But that doesn't matter for me. It is worth it.

“Hidden jem in San Juan del Sur!”
Reviewed September 24, 2011

Im surprised there are no reviews for El Pollito in San Juan Del Sur. This is definitely a hidden gem that you might simply walk past without noticing!

It is located in the centre of town, opposite the Hotel Colonial and down from Avenida del Park.

We went for dinner recently and were pleasantly surprised by the fantastic food and service!

From the outside, we were expecting El Pollito to be a fast-food chicken shop serving up the usual fried chicken and rice. Boy were we mistaken. A lovely french lady runs this place and has given it a french twist!

She still serves the roasted/rotisceria chickens if you want it (these are good value to share, for those on a budget). However, she aslo has some other great options on the menu like cordon bleau, fish, steaks, salads etc.

I had a fillet steak with mushroom sauce - the steak was so tender and cooked to perfection and they used amazing fresh field mushrooms - I felt like I was having a meal in paris! My partner had Cordon Bleu which was also cooked to perfection. The waitress tempted my with a chocolate mousse which was superb!

The service was excellent - not pushy but attentive, timely and friendly.

This place is definitely worth a visit.
