Description: Nectar Restaurant & Bar is located on Calle La Calzada, a pedestrian-friendly street in the heart of Granada's historic colonial downtown. Located only 1/2 block East (towards the Lake) of Parque Central & the main Cathedral, our street-side dining offers up the best people watching around while our beautiful covered courtyard provides some peaceful respite from Granada's hustle and bustle. We've got you covered for whatever mood your in. We delight in offering a menu featuring some traditional Nicaraguan fare (Enchiladas, Tostones con Queso, Ropa Vieja and more), wonderful organic salads, tasty ceviche, fish tacos, burritos & homemade desserts, including Cheesecake, Flan de Coco and our world famous Lava Cake. ALL of our rum cocktails are made with Nicaraguan Flor de Cana rum, never the cheap stuff. We also offer up some local Craft Beer, made available by our friends at La Portena in San Juan Del Sur as well as Campo Brew Co. out of Tola. We source all our products locally and shop daily to ensure we have the freshest of the fresh. And perhaps most importantly, our staff is the real thing-- warm, friendly, and genuinely caring. Hard-working Nicaraguan hospitality at its very best! Be sure to check out our 2x1 Happy Hour from 3-6 Daily or stop by and enjoy our below zero beer. Perfect for those hot Granada days!

By having a waiter who remembers your name after 5 years the nectar glances not only in service but also with lovely food and a good athmosphere.

“Simply Excellent!”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We spent a beautiful evening sitting out on the Calzada enjoying drinks, the most excellent food and wonderful service. This restaurant is a must while you are in Granada! I had the Jalapeno Chicken which was fabulous! There is seating inside in a beautiful courtyard as well. The prices for all were great and again the friendly attentive waitstaff made it a perfect evening!

“Great place for a drink and a meal!”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

We had such a great time here on our first visit, that we came back twice more during our days in Granada. Nectar has the BEST nachos (supreme?) I've ever had and the dry caipirinha was excellent.The Guyaba Mojito was also exceptional, and the first night we were there they had sangria as a special and this was really different, maybe because it had pineapple in it. The first time here we sat out front on the pedestrian street, which was OK but we were bothered by passersby who were trying to sell us something or beg for money. The next two times we sat in the inner courtyard garden, which was lovely. Two servers, Annel and Jose, were particularly friendly and attentive. Try this place out - you won't regret it!

“Delicious food and excellent service”
Reviewed July 14, 2013 via mobile

Nectar Bar has become our home away from home during this 2 week stay in Granada. It is very centrally located and has very tasty nachos, and chicken/pork quesadillas, carne asada etc. Try also their delicious daily special. Sit in the courtyard for a beautiful relaxing meal (and a libation) with great Wifi connection to entertain your haggard tired teenage travelers. You will receive warm and friendly service from the señorita Annel-she is terrific!
