This place is conveniently located on the road, so if you are just passing by Rivas no need to detour. The place at a glance, is average, no ambiance, just a big ranch in the sun. You have to order sometime twice the same drink, and hot sauce, etc since the waiters are not so attentive. Regarding the food, they... More

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.

Presentation was awesome, wait staff attentive. My churrasco was delicious! My wife had the chuleta (pork chop) .Both highly recommended! Lighting made the ambience less inviting. We were the only people there, which felt odd. Would local advertising help? Worth a try, and worth the drive from downtown Rivas.

We had lunch here and won't be returning. Our lunches came with salads, they were mediocre. Iceberg lettuce, a little red cabbage, tomato, carrot slice, beets, etc. The main dish portions were pretty generous. I had chicken breast with mushroom sauce, the chicken was moist and tasty, the mushroom sauce was lousy and it was served with some basic french... More

Stopped at this restaurant on our way to San Juan del Sur! We were glad that we did. The service was great. We both had local fish which was very freah and well cooked. Awesome presentation with fries or tostones (fried plantains) and local fixings. Everything was very well done and we had a great time. Prices were good for... More
