One of the best steak houses in Nicaragua. Don Candido is the best but this is not far behind. Nice atmosphere and service.

Don Parillon, like many steak houses in Nicaragua, pretend to be steakhouse but they limit themselves to typical cuts of meats that is (seems) ordinary, not distinctive and or unique. Definitely, the restaurant brings in its local and foreign visitors but it lacks that certain "knockout blow" that would place them on the higher hierarchy of Nicaraguan cuisine.

We took about 35 people from our Managua satellite office out here for a Friday night celebration when I was visiting from our office in the States. The restaurant handled things admirably. The food choices were good, they were options for rooms and also the ability to place individual orders for those with dietary restrictions. The drinks are strong and... More

A year ago I gave this place a very good review, sadly I feel that standards have slipped considerably. In my last review I raved about the lomo de costillo which has now been removed from the menu. We ordered three dishes one pork, one beef and one chicken (the chicken was a starter dish). All three were ok but... More

I've eaten at many BBQs in latinamerica and this one is nothing special. The flavor is ok, the service for a quiet night was bad, seems like they dont care much about service. Place was clean, drinks are large. Just know of something, Nicaragua has a law that prohibits tips within the receipt and this restaurant did add a 10%... More

If you want an alternative to Los Ranchos, this is it. The meat is excellent and the service very good. I would recommend asking for prime beef since they have two options. Don't go for the cheaper one....when it comes to eating meat in Nicaragua never go to cheap places; at the the end you pay more and do not... More

This is a great place to eat ! Beers always cold and if you visit this restaurant you have to try the chorizos (BBQ sausages) and the Fileton for 2 a juicy 1/2lb beef Tenderloin cooked on the flames. Service is excellent and the chef Martin is always there to make you feel at home.

We ordered a mixed grilled plate of steak, chicken and chorizo with sides of rice, yucca, maduro and fries. The food and service was excellent. They give you large portions, so go hungry.
