Every time I come to Granada this is where I hang out. The staff are all friendly and the atmosphere is always relaxed. I would definitely recommend that you Visit if you come to Granada.

Sign outside stated Sunday Roast Dinner with all the trimmings was available from 4.30pm until nothing was left .

We passed by this restaurant yesterday in the early afternoon after reading the rave reviews on this website .
Had a few beers and some good conversation with the owner from New Zealand and his manager from Wales , nice atmosphere and friendly people .

Noted that Sunday roast dinner was advertised and told them we would be back to eat at 6.30pm ( two hours after the advertised time of availability) .

Really looking forward to a great Sunday Roast Dinner we arrived at 6.30pm prompt and were told by the owner that it was a little behind schedule , no big we will wait and have a beer in the meantime .
Around an hour later our food finally arrived and believe me , you would not want to order or eat it .
1. It was served STONE COLD 2. The Yorkshire Pudding was RAW barely cooked around the edges 3. The roast potatoes were like rubber skins still on , and stone cold they never had been roasted 4. The stuffing ( if you could call it that ) was so full of pepper it was inedible 5. Roast Beef was 2 slices of over cooked very tough Beef oh and just to finish off NO gravy either apart from that the Cauliflower and Broccoli were just about edible .

I complained to the Welsh manager and he apologized said he needed to change his Chef .
He was kind enough to give me a 25% discount on the total price of two plates of completely INEDIBLE food , in reality he should not have charged for it as he honestly knew himself it was NOT EDIBLE and openly admitted the fact .

I can not comment on the other food/dishes at this restaurant however others did make some comments on the BAD Quality whilst we were present .

I would certainly NOT recommend the Sunday Roast Dinner EVER .

One last comment and I found this most interesting , on the base of the menu one is offered free shots/drinks if one writes a rating on this particular restaurant , makes me wonder why there are so many Good ratings on this website ??????

For both myself and my wife it was probably one of the worst meals we have ever had .

This problem has been resolved. Here in Nicaragua the turn around for kitchen staff is very high. Teaching newly hired locals how to make a foreign dish takes time.

Friendly bar, popular watering hole. Lotte, our Dutch waitress, was very pleasant. Unfortunately, they do not serve white wine and their only after-dinner drink is Sambuca. Their back patio is very nice.

Had a blast at this local pub with the staff and regulars! Drinks were great, reasonably priced and the owner is a gem, keeping us entertained on most evenings of our stay! Personally loved his dog Sterling and Greg and Gus took fabulous care of us...looking forward to a Tona on the way home to Canada!

We had a great time drinking at this establishment. The food was good, the drinks were amazing and it seemed to be happy hour all the time. The owner is a very friendly fellow and we saw him at the place several times while we were there. Great atmosphere around and there is always something to see on the main tourist strip. Definately recommend for a night or every night as we did in Granada.
