The service is good and the food is typical Nicaraguan ..........Check to make sure that the full time chef/cook is working to ensure a decent meal that isn't prepared by a substitute (usually an unqualifed relative)

Great service, good steak and chicken, nice sauces served with dinner, nice setting, ice-cold beer and reasonable prices. The waiter was very helpful and spoke good English (which if helpful when your Spanish is as lame as mine). Just a couple of blocks up from Hotel San Jose.

Ordered El Metro, it was great, enjoyed by 7 visitors. Sitting by the patio at night was nice. I think you could give this one a chance..Owned by a joung couple.

Great plate of mixed traditional Nica foods and definitely the best Gallo Pinto I've ever had, in a very cute setting ...

Local cuisine, very good, great service, peaceful. Had a nice breakfast here. Coffee is always good in Nicarauga! Three minute walk from Hotel San Jose where we stayed.
