The menu is ambitious, but most dishes are severely overcooked and somewhat unimaginative. Service is excellent, and the location is very convenient.

This is my third time at this restaurant and I keep returning for their soup which is out of this world. We had the lobster today and nothing special for a seafood restaurant, service very slow and all the sides pretty bad.

We stopped here for lunch while traveling through Rivas. This is an outdoor restaurant beside a busy road. The ambience was so so but the fish that I ordered was delicious! We had a very large party and they were able to accommodate us.

Stopped here after crossing the Nicaraguan border. Food was great, the beer very cold and the price reasonable for Nicaragua. Service was good, although the kitchen was a bit slow. I still recommend it if time is not an issue.
