Description: This is the largest and one of the oldest restaurants in San Juan del Sur. It is the most popular restaurant serving traditional Nicaraguan beach fare. Located right on the beach! Full service, full bar. Fabulous sunsets!
Reviewed 22 April 2018

We were in town for a week and it was Saturday night and looking for a good dinner. We had seen this place on other trips to San Juan Del Sur so we popped in. Unbelievable they started us off with plaintain chips and salsa we did not need the salsa the chips were so fresh and good,my wife had grilled fish and clams , and I had lobster. The meal could not have been any better. I almost forgot the live music, young band playing classic music even singing american songs in English sorry did not get there names. The waiter Wilme did not skip a beat so if you want food,service and music with a VIEW do not miss this place while in San Juan. MUCHO GUSTO

Perfect location on the beach to watch the sunset. We went there a few times for happy hour at sunset time and had the ron con calala and the fish carpaccio for a really good price.

Stopped for pina colodas and a view and didn’t disappoint! Great service and views. Lively and servers don’t seem Tom bug if you’re coming in for just a drink and want a great table

We ordered 2 beer here and asked for our check from a couple of different waiters. After the other staff located our actual waiter, he didn't bring us a bill and verbally told us a price higher than the menu and insisted the difference was tax. Tax is not that much. You can find better service elsewhere at a cheaper price.

This place has great service! Food is just ok. Had the seafood platter for two and 2 drinks each for two people and it was about $70 US. Too expensive for what you get.
