Food is delicious, price is good and on weekends there are shows! In my opinion is the best restaurant in the city of Matagalpa.

Loved this restaurant. Service was great. The menu was interesting and reasonably priced. I had an amazing pasta dish while my husband had the salmon special served with couscous! The octopus starter was very good as well. I forgot I was in Nicaragua for a...More

Really sweet restaurant located just a block or so off the main city roads in Matagalpa. Great outdoor and indoor seating experience. We had the paella for two, which was delicious — as were their super fresh salads. Our waiter was very friendly and accommodating...More
