We had a rough time finding good places to eat in Granada. Thanks to God, we found El Zaguan, and finally could eat nice food. Recommended!

We arrived in Granada a half a day later than planned because of delayed flights. We got in at 9pm, left the hotel and wondered over to El Zaguan. We had no trouble getting a table. The food was delicious - really good quality cuts of steak. They had a great bottle of red and out waiter didn't speak a... More

Besides being located in one of the prettiest cities of Nicaragua, El Zaguan offers one of the best churrascos I've tried in Nicaragua. Lots of variety when it comes to national dishes. Prices are pretty good for the quality of the food.

Everything is in the title. If you go there, take the tenderloin. Rest is average: food, service, location, drinks. And a bit expensive.

Being from the caribbean, we thought that food in Nicaragua was going to be awesome. Our first days were not that good. Our first good experience was in Zaguan, as we got what we actually ordered. Prices are good, but higher if you compare with what you have around. Churrasco has good flavor and Ceasar salad was really good. Potato... More

$18 for a flap steak with chimichurri is in my opinion very overpriced. I was expecting a thick juicy steak with tasty sides. Instead I was served boiled potatoes, that were charred on the grill, a cheap steak that was probably chemically treated with tenderizor, some simple rice and a teeny tiny salad. The service here is the only thing... More

The location of the restaurant is very convenient, right behind the cathedral. Ambiance is good, despite the fact that this is a big reastaurant. Plenty to see, including the big bbq where met and fish is making your mouth water. No regrets!

Great seafoods. We didn't have steaks because we ate too much red meats during the trip. Great service. Price-wise, for someone from USA, it is budget friendly.

Its in a courtyard so no views but the food quality was what we expected for a Christmas dinner . Seemed like a lot of wealth Nicaraguans and... More

I went on this spot trusting the references. I order churrasco and a local beer. My portion it was very small and meat it was tender but nothing memorable. It came with a little piece of grilled plátano ( very nice) and and 2 slices of half cook potato not that nice. Prices are too high for what you get,... More
