We stopped by for dinner one night. The staff was friendly and the food was delicious! We had steak quesadillas, fish tacos and the grilled chicken with jalapeños. The portions were the perfect size and delicious. The coconut flan for dessert was creamy, with just the right amount of coconut flavor. I would say my only issue was that since... More

Excellent service with friendly waiters. Very good food at a reasonable price. I loved the yuca chips, fish tacos, and garlic fish. We had lunch, dinner, and drinks in the lovely courtyard garden. It was quiet and cool with the breeze from the doorways. We are also beer aficionados and enjoyed the Belgian style saison called Campo. Delicious! It is... More

We were drawn in by the specials - Taco Tuesday and 2-1 cocktails with free yucca chips. Taco Tuesday was a big win $1 Tacos and beers. They advertise the best fish tacos in town - I haven't had any others in town but I wasn't a fan. However the steak, chicken and vegetarian were delicious! The next day before... More

Very good service, great looking menu, tasty food and OK environment. We only had the fish tacos and they were accompanied by rice, a small salad and beans (in a bowl,). It was a tasty, filling meal. The sangria was definitely on the top of the best for Central America. A good level of alcohol and flavourful.

My wife and I spent a week in Granada, and we visited Nectar several times. Happy Hour is 3-6 every day, they make great mojitos. We had a small order of their Nachos Supreme, and we both loved it! Efficient friendly staff, we liked being able to pay by credit card. If you're on Calle La Calzada, check this place... More

The sign that said "Best Fish Tacos" brought us in and they really were the best fish tacos! My boyfriend and I split an order of fish tacos and a Cuban sandwich and we wished it was two orders of fish tacos.

Three of us had dinner at Nectar...sea bass with mango salsa and fish tacos in particular. Service was cheerful and good and the food excellent. We sat in the street and were entertained by hip hop dancers and a traditional dancer. It was a noisy, busy atmosphere out on the street so go prepared. All good!

We went to Nectar because they had good happy hours special, and ended up eating up there and were not disapointed! We enjoyed a lot the Tostones con queso (plantain with nica cheese) in Nicaragua, but the one at Nectar were the best we had! We ended up paying around 20$ for 3 snacks/meals and 6 drinks total.

Lots of food choices for the meat and non-meat eaters alike. Went on a Monday so did not get to avail of the USD$1 Taco Tuesday special. I got the fish tacos with breaded fish, cabbage and really not much else. The accompanying sauce was a tad bit too citrusy for me.Overall a decent choice for lunch. An entree and... More

We have eaten here something while our stay in Granada. The dinner was good, we enjoyed it. The service was very quick and the staff friendly. The atmosphere was good, at the street with the other restaurants. Enjoyed it here and we would recommend it. :-)

Nectar Restaurant & Bar is located on Calle La Calzada, a pedestrian-friendly street in the heart of Granada's historic colonial downtown. Located only 1/2 block East (towards the Lake) of Parque Central & the main Cathedral, our street-side dining offers up the best people watching around while our beautiful covered courtyard provides some peaceful respite from Granada's hustle and bustle. We've got you covered for whatever mood your in. We delight in offering a menu featuring some traditional Nicaraguan fare (Enchiladas, Tostones con Queso, Ropa Vieja and more), wonderful organic salads, tasty ceviche, fish tacos, burritos & homemade desserts, including Cheesecake, Flan de Coco and our world famous Lava Cake. ALL of our rum cocktails are made with Nicaraguan Flor de Cana rum, never the cheap stuff. We also offer up some local Craft Beer, made available by our friends at La Portena in San Juan Del Sur as well as Campo Brew Co. out of Tola. We source all our products locally and shop daily to ensure we have the freshest of the fresh. And perhaps most importantly, our staff is the real thing-- warm, friendly, and genuinely caring. Hard-working Nicaraguan hospitality at its very best! Be sure to check out our 2x1 Happy Hour from 3-6 Daily or stop by and enjoy our below zero beer. Perfect for those hot Granada days!
