“Basic affordable meals”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Food was good, pleasant setting and very affordable prices. Beans were cold, and going bad... but the rest of the food was OK.

“Great Mexican Food across from Buena Onda Hostel”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

I went twice. I especially like the vegetarian quesadilla which was filled with tasty grilled veggies. I also liked the batidas (smoothies). The restaurant is across from Matagalpas main hostel.

“Best Mexican for low prices”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We went here four times over two days it was so good. The presentation was enticing, the ingredients fresh, and the prices are very cheap. The chilaquiles were my favorite thing I tried. The hand-made veggie burger is one of the best veggie burgers I've ever had. The other two visits I had a veggie burrito, and nachos- both we're on-point. I cannot get over how great the food was. They also make aguas frescas- Mexican juice drinks. Fresh, flavorful, and not so sweet as most Nica drinks.

“Average..!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

My friends and I went to this restaurant as it was only a few blocks from our hostal but we feel like we made a bad choice. First of all the food is not very good, they say it's mexican food; however it lacked of flavour. Then, there was this group of people, I think they were missioners or something who weren having a meeting which later became a bday celebration.. they were very real noisy!!!! There seems to be only one waitress which slowed down our meals too.
