Had read great reviews about the food and especially the cocktails. I had the chicken quesadilla and a whiskey orange pineapple cocktail. The quesadilla was fine and came out pretty quickly, but the cocktail tasted like pineapple juice - there was no cocktail aspect to it all. Overall disappointed after reading the other reviews.

Excellent!! I really would like to recommend my favorite bar in all Nicaragua. The garden (patio) is lovely, it has a beautiful atmosphere with pretty lights and burning torches. The food is something special, really tasty and unique. Tostonhamburgesas, Pollo con Mango-Mostaza sauce, Thai Salat, Piel de Papas, really tasty sauces and this combined with a fresh cocktail or a... More

Since we weren't too hungry, my son and I were looking for a place to have something light to eat. The menu at Antorchas listed several items that interested us. We ordered the potato skins and the chicken in peanut sauce. Both were delicious! We will definitely go back to Antorchas next time we're in Leon.

Found this place our first night in Leon, food, drinks and service were all great, I ordered the chicken with satay sauce which was a winner. Cocktails were tasty and it wasn't too expensive. Tried to go again another night but it was closed, we may have gone too early.

Looked for this place my first night in Leon based on other reviews for not having blasting music. Good music, relaxed atmosphere, good service. I tried the Potato Skins (recommended on the menu) and they were just OK. Very small potatos, some halves did not have the potato scooped out. On the other hand, the chicken quesedilla was EXCELLENT.

Little Bar with good music , good atmosphere, cocktails are ok, national rum ++. I prefer this kind of bar than the loudy ones than you can find in the center city.

Cool spot in Leon for a few drinks and appetizers. The courtyard location is nice, and definitely give the tostones sliders a try!

We stumbled upon this place looking for a 'snack' supper and some good drinks. The place was quiet, but the music was chill and excellent vibes. Chicken wings were huge, and the drinks were fantastic! Menu was in English which is always a bonus too :) lol

This is a great place for food and drinks that's reasonably priced. It's a unique Nica take on tapas and a nice atmosphere.
