We went to Nicaragua from Costa Rica on a Tour. We had lunch at this restaurant which was included in the tour price. The food was enjoyable and well presented. However, a waiter came around and said 'would you like a beer?' to which we all said yes, after we had eaten he came around and asked for payment! We... More

My husband and I stayed here twice. Once with another couple and once with his mother and a friend. Both stays were very good. We love the interior and history behind the hotel. Our first stay, we had the suite on the bottom floor. HUGE bed and beautiful furnishings! The breakfast was also very nice in the mornings.

The rooms are always spotless, the sheets are so soft, wifi in every room, breakfast is included and made to order. My husband likes modern, I like historic. This boutique hotel has both. The staff is consistently attentive and Juan greets us like old friends now. If we need anything, taxi, directions, a tour (loved Laguna Apoyo and the horse... More

Beautiful setting in an old colonial house. I sat outside under a ceiling fan with a garden view. It was peaceful and lovely. Lunch was a salad, fish fillet (no bones) grilled w garlic and butter - fantastic! and was served with vegetables, rice and a little cup of minced garlic in drawn butter. I used this for dipping bread,... More

The restaurant was just superb. The place is an old colonial house with a marvelous garden and mahogany furniture. The cuisine was exquisite. Ask for the sangría!

I visted this restaurant as part of a Nicaragua tour i took from Costa Rica. I couldn't be any happier that the travel company hosting our tour chose them as our lunch retsaurant. We were part of a large group from a tour bus and there was still room left for other visitors at the restaurant. I was able to... More

We visited this restaurant on a tour of Nicaragua from Costa Rica. We were starving by the time we arrived and our first impressions of the building were .. WOW! We were given bread first, which appeared stale, and butter which tasted like it had been frozen, so that wasn't good. I then had the pork, and it was gorgeous.... More

La Gran Francia restaurant is almost worth a visit just for the ambiance as it is set in what is one of the oldest properties in Grenada. The entire hotel represents a well-done restoration of an early colonial building. Unusual for Grenada the restaurant is not only air conditioned but has some interesting art work on its walls as well... More
