Ate at this restaurant on all three of our nights on isla de Ometepe. It’s located in balgue which is one of the larger hubs on isla de Ometepe. The menu was large with a wide array of offerings including curries, pastas, hamburgers, burritos, etc....We tried a few different food options and all of them were very tasty and well presented. Plenty of non alcoholic and alcoholic drink options on offer including bottles of wine which was a rare treat. Setting was decent with indoor and outdoor options. Only negative was the service. Although they do take the orders fairly quickly the waiters turn into ghosts at this point and it is so hard to make any further orders or sort out the bill. I ended up having to go to the bar to do the later.More

I ordered 2 deliveries from them to my nearby hotel. Both curries which they claim is their specialty or I would not think to order in Nica. Neither were very good and there are limited other options nearby. And I like curry… On the 3rd...night, I wanted a light dinner and they refused to deliver unless I ordered more, even though the delivery charge is the same price. And they charge for containers snd now I’m stuck with 2. That’s loyalty for you. Es lo qué hay.More

Couldn't believe how good the food is considering the remote location of ometepe. All organic and locally sourced and the best brownie on earth.

I was at Cafe Campestre for an early dinner in March 2020. I ordered an eggplant curry which was delicious, came with a bowl of rice and a small offering of pickles and garlic in a local sweet sauce. I also ordered a large glass...of fresh maracuja (passion fruit) juice - spectacular!! All for about $6-7 USD. My after dinner coffee was the best yet in Nicaragua and my chat with the two local waiters lasted well into the night. Lovely evening with some of the locals and a delicious curry.More

I wasn't really "wowed" by this place, however both curries we had were pretty good as well as the brownies. They were nice enough to make me a bagged lunch for my volcano hike the next morning and even separated everything so it wouldn't get...soggy. They have a few good vegetarian options to choose from and a nice secluded terrasse in the back which doesn't get any street noise. My beef is mostly with the younger waitress who doesn't smile and doesn't care. When our meals were finished she came to our table with two more plates and asked who ordered the curry, not noticing the empty plates in front of us...More

My husband and I both had curries and they were both amazing! The brownies were heaven and my husband got a yummy sandwich to go for his hike up one of the volcanoes the next day. Good service, great food.

I recently spent 2 weeks in Balgue and ate at Cafe Campestre nearly every night. The food was great! Great burger, great curries, great brownies! Ben, the owner, is a gem and all of the staff were great.

We were recommended to try Cafe Campestre for its great tasting food so decided to go for our first meal on the island. Situated on the road side in Balgüe, the cafe itself was pretty basic in its set up. Sadly we were greeted by...a very unfriendly member of staff. The food was tasty and packed with flavour, however the service left a sour taste in our mouths. For our final night we decided to try one of their curries and opted for delivery. We called and a member of staff said it would take 30 minutes. An hour later I asked our host to follow up with the cafe and they said it would be an additional 10 minutes. 30 minutes after that, I called again and they said it would be 5 more minutes and then hung up. We gave up hope after 2.5 hours had passed! The food never came. A very disappointing experience especially given the service we’ve received across the country has been amazing!More

Some of the best curry I have ever eaten, all fresh ingredients and an excellent atmosphere and service. Insane value for money, I only stayed in Ometepe for three days but I visited this restaurant four times!

Unexpectedly the food in this not remarkably looking restaurant is excellent. Our favorites dishes were the eggplant and the pumpkin Thai curries but everything else we tried was also very good. The service however was not consistently reliable. Still, it is certainly one of the...better places to dine in Balgue.More
