When I have visitors from abroad I usually take them to El Eskimo and tell them that it was one of the few restaurants in Managua in the late 80s when I came to Managua. French style cuisine, good fish dishes and salads. Great icecream. For capuccino, better to go somewhere else.

Old school, an institution, original 50ties decor. Very good and affordable food for every palate. Experienced waiters. No blaring music, a sea of tranquillity. Don't miss this culinary and historical landmark in the Big Ananas. Enjoy

One of the oldest restaurants in Managua. They serve delicious sandwiches and burgers. Prices are fair and food portions is good. The milkshakes and ice cream are delicious, you can't leave with out having some. The staff is friendly and service is good.

This is a restaurant that is a part of Managua history. If you ask anyone who grew up there they will know it. My wife remembered the waiter from when she was a kid, and I ordered her favorite dish - Camerones al la Thermidor, and it was wonderful. They even have an informal cafe in the back-side of the...

The food at El Eskimo was excellent. This is a large white table cloth restaurant where details like filtered water are standard. Fine cuts of meat and a salad bar make this restaurant experience outstanding. Large children's menu and delicious milkshakes and frozen lemonade keep the kids happy. Wonderful experience. They can easily accommodate large groups.

El Eskimo is one of my regular meals when visiting Nicaragua! Their Vuelve a la Vida cocktail is to die for! I am also a huge fan of their Pio V! Highly recommend!

My friend has been eating at El Eskimo for 15 years and will probably eat there for another 15 years. It is a great place to eat with great service. He took me there for the Sunday morning buffet. It was fabulous. Great hashbrowns. Wonderful selection of fruits and cereals as well as beverages.

I had not been to El Eskimo in a couple of month mainly because getting there is a hassle. (most of the streets that take you to the restaurant are closed because Daniel Ortega lives near by) Today I went with my family to celebrate my wife's birthday. I got the Curvina with caper sauce. The fish was ok, It... More
