We had 1 hour before we had to catch our taxi, other restaurants were closed, but this one was open for lunch. Being open was about the only good thing they offered. The menu looks professional and the options looked like comfort food I had been missing after several weeks in Nica. We settled on the grilled cheese (comes with... More

When first walking in the place was empty. The bartender didn't even look up from his phone. When he finally bothered to ask us what we wanted he seemed annoyed he had to do his job. We ate fajitas which were pretty good. But when the bill came it wrong and it wasn't an honest mistake because he kept changing... More

There is no shortage of eating and drinking establishments in Nicaragua. This is definitely a good place to stop, have a Tona (the national beer) and people watch.

Kelly's is one of the only great dance places in the centre. Me and my friends danced here a lot. From salsa, bachata to pop songs. A happy place to make a nice party.

This is a great place to have a cerveza while listening to the street performers. It is fun to experience this simple pleasure.

We restaurant was pretty empty and I think they forgot about our order. We waited over an hour, repeatedly asking about our food. We had our one year old daughter with us, which made it a little more difficult. Once the food did come out it was quite good.

Disappointed. oK music. Lots of tourists. One night they charged an outrageous cover for all u can drink tequila. Not Cool if you don't drink those things. They need more stage space for dancing. Bartenders were okay. Overall if you want to have fun dancing go to the lake discos.

Place was dead when we went in. Had to approach bar for beer as no one came to us (maybe that's the way here?) not sure. Was just sitting and relaxing when - I think the owner or like - lit a smoke up...right at a table under a "no fumar" sign lol Had to leave.
