“Fabulous Nicaraguan home cooking”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

Yolanda's cafe is run by an adorable woman in her 60's, who greets her guests with hugs, as if she is welcoming you to her home. Her cooking is incomparable and the prices are so reasonable. The cafe is on the main street of Rivas, near Popoya Beach. There are no doors or windows, just a covering of a roof. The breezes blow through the restaurant and it all looks out on a lovely garden. An the food is just amazing. Exquisite delicous sauces covering perfectly perpared meats and vegetables. It is a real find.
