Our guide brought us here and it was a wonderful experience. The fruit smoothies were great as were the fish and shrimp platters we had. It i in the middle of Masaya and a great spot to eat, drink and watch people!!

I personally come for ceviche and "batidos" (cocktails) and I am always satisfied (I live in Masaya). Very well located, outside in the "parque central". Also local food at a very good price. I recommend warmly.

Stay away from the high chairs! The food was quite good, fish, rice, a salad and fried plaintains all went together. However, if I had only known, I would have ordered a milkshake and nothing else. Lots of fruits for their shakes are available. Chairs on the patio, people watching and a sloth up in the tree over our heads!

A funny place, named after a guy named the chicken, but it serves fish. Oh well. Had a great batido and enjoyed the view of the plaza.

This place would be great on a hot sunny day,I made the mistake of going in the rain (due to the rainy season). Despite the weather, the ceviche was good and the smoothies were tasty. Lots of different options. The set up is cute and novel.

We visited Ceviche y Cocteles in 2013 before the establishment hit it big in the guidebooks and here on TA. We returned in June 2016 and our experience was less than pleasant. The owner of the establishment is an older woman who lords over the location with an iron fist and permanent frown. All transactions take place out of the... More

If you enjoy sitting in the park, drinking a smoothie or eating Ceviche then this place is for you. El Pollo is a unique experience. Walk up to the counter and select what fresh ripe fruits you want blended into a tall glass of delight or order the ceviche and get a taste of a great mix of fresh fish.... More

This place is an experience and right in the park. The host will help you decided on the right fruit smoothie and guide you to what is fresh to eat. Can't beat the cerviche, even in the rain!
