We chose this restaurant because of high ratings in our guide book. We ordered the pizza and it was just about the worst pizza we had ever had. Very poor quality crust (unless you like a thin crust pizza that is doughy) and almost no...More

Lovely locale In a back yard which makes you feel like you are in the midst of a jungle with tall trees and scattered tables. Loved the ambience! Unfortunately, it took them forty some odd minutes to prepare a beet salad that had no dressing....More

So much potential here but it is squandered! Gorgeous private patios to eat in and HUGE back outdoor area that is lovely. HOWEVER, we ordered our meals and waited over an hour for them. I ordered the pesto penne with chicken. It was pretty good...More

Walked by this place several times before deciding to go in on a recommendation of a friend. On one side it looks fine dining and on the other is a bakery. But if you walk through the bakery to the back, the space opens up...More

The lobster paella was delightful and our server was very helpful with explaining the dishes in English .... Area outside restaurant wasn't very pretty but easily got a taxi back to hotel....

Find another restaraunt. Overpriced food. Pizzas were undercooked. Vegetables tasted funny. Everything was mediocre. They didn't have half of the items on the menu. We like to eat out a lot and don't mind spending money on a good meal. This was not a good...More

The pasta and pizza are equally delicious, like what you would go to a fancy restaurant for in the US or Canada, except it's so much cheaper! Cheap is relative though, it's still expensive by Nicaraguan standards.
