We arrived in Matagalpa during a power cut so weren't sure we'd find anywhere open/serving food without the deafening sound of a generator, however el Mexicano proved us wrong! They were doing things by candle light which actually provided a really lovely atmosphere. The food...More

This place is popular with the budget crowd. It's just opposite the huge hostel (onda something) and seems to get good business from them. Portions are plenty big and the food is pretty tasty. Relaxing spot to have a beer too.
