Description: Our menu is small in quantity, but big in taste. 6-7 Appetizers & 5-6 main plates, ranging in price from $10USD-$28. We are changing culinary style and service in Granada, Nicaragua. We are possibly the most expensive restaurant in Granada - but we do not compete with any restaurant in Granada. Warning: if you are traveling on a tight budget, please do not come to Ciudad Lounge as you will be terribly dissapointed and we will be sad that you couldn't enjoy our full range of offerings and this - what is almost 100% of the time a wonderful dining experience - will end up on this site as an experience from hell, due to the economic shortcommings of a client, that should not reflect on the style and performance of our restaurant. Average style-lounge-dining experiance is about $40/pp We assure you that your meal and time spent at Ciudad Lounge (average 3 hours) will be among your top 5 lifetime restaurant experiences.

“Great service and experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

My brother in law and my self visited Nicaragua and when we visited the cuidad lounge we met with one of the owners William and he made sure we had the best experience possible. He let us try the local beers and the cacao which changed out world of cigars and alcohol combined. They were very knowledgeable on their cigars and very helpful with pairing. Unfortunately we didn't get to try the food because we didn't discover them until the end if our trip but our family has tried it and said it was great. We can't wait for our trip next year just so we can go back and get the full experience. If you want to go to a place and just relax and have a cigar this is the best in Nicaragua.

“Best place in Central America hands down.”

No comparison to this place anywhere else. The attention to detail in the food, atmosphere, and service is why it's more than a place to have a meal. It's an overall fine dining experience. Thank you Will and Noami.

“Class and superior service”

My father in law took me there for cigars and a drink. It was by far one my favorite place in Grenada. The service was amazing, and I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Grenada.

Aries.

Thank you sir for stopping by.

Glad you had a special, smoking moment with your father (in-law).
I trust your relationship with him is strong - I [William "aka" Chef Puro] ("Puro" = Cigar) was reminded, with your comment here, about my relationship with Antonio (Noemi's Dad). What a man. Hates Cigars, I regret to say - so, I have never had the pleasure to relax with a long smoke in his company, but have shared many afternoons roasting (his favorite thing to do), with family.

What is being said here is that we look forward to forging closer relationships over great drinks, food and cigars at Ciudad Lounge for many years to come.

Memories are all we have left, at the end.
Make many. In Style.

Best for the Best (We don't make the rules, we just follow them)

“Lovely restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 5, 2014

My review is a bit late in the coming... (I ate here in January with my husband) - but I doubt that the excellent food and service has changed as both Noemie and William seem very serious in providing both wonderful food and atmosphere. And with all that seriousness about what they do - they both were remarkably funny and accommodating hosts, even helping us find a driver up to the middle of nowhere in the mountains. The food was delicious and on top of everything I drank the best drink I have ever drank in my life - a honey (cucumber?) martini - so good that seven months later I still remember.

Friends.

Glad that we created a special memory in you. What else is there to life, but to create memories - we are so proud of our staff and excited to be celebrating our III anniversary, this month, in Granada - as we continue to provide great service and food in Granada - we continue to expand our efforts to elevate culinary and style of service in Nicaragua by opening our 2nd Ciudad Lounge in Esteli, Nicaragua - Opening in November.

We hope you will stop by Ciudad Lounge on your next trip to Nicaragua.

Best for the Best.
Your Hosts.
