We had dinner here for our first night in Granada during a week long stay. The food was good but we experienced better over the next several days. Drinks were over-priced compared to other venues. Of a half dozen places we dined in Granada, this...More

I went here on my last day in Granada for a long lunch. It is a little bit out of the way but worth the 10 minute walk from the centre. Lovely relaxed vibe, excellent food and drink. It is expensive but Granada/Nicaraguan standards (still...More

The first impression upon entering this place is that it was thought out and created to relax and enjoy unique dishes. In fact, the menu has some especially unique options, such as Lomo de Cerdo en Vigoron, the Thai Ossobuco or the Indochinese Meat Salad....More

Enjoyed dinner in the garden-like back of the Restaurant. Service and food were of very high level and the concept based on local / organic Nicaraguan products is a role model that more places should adapt (all over the world). Would go again anytime.

Modern environment in a neoclassical property constructed in 1886. We've forged a relationship with Nicaragua's best coffee producers to provide you with an excellent cup. High altitude, shade grown boutique crops yield coffees with a crisp and balanced acidity, roundness, sweetness and rich chocolate-like brews. These farmers know what they do. The poetry is ever intended at Espressonista. On your table we serve local, slightly smoked ham. The brie, the camembert and manchego are also from Masatepe and Matagalpa. Organic lettuce, baby asparagus and other greens from Ticuantepe. Chez nous, we know where everything comes from. We bake our own pastries and breads, make our own ice creams, brew our own beer. We love food, drink and good company. Join us!
