The best quesadillas Ive ever had in Nicaragua. One of my most memorable meals. Also, the club soda was freezing cold which is a bonus since other places are luke warm.

There are only four tables in this small open air restaurant but don't let the humble surroundings discourage you from calling. The food is prepared with care, well presented and tasty. We both had vegetarian curry which came with a dressed salad, vegetables, and fries....More

Lovely small restaurant, on the road from Santa Cruz to Balgue right next to Maria’s hostel. The food is really really good, the best we’ve had on ometepe. And fairly priced as well. Worth paying a visit to!

We both had the vegetarian curry and it was fantastic. Just the right amount of heat, and the salad which included some lightly roasted vegetables was awesome. Don't be turned away by the humble setting, great food lies within!
