We came here a rainy night in San Jorge and was recommended to go here. The hall is nothing fancy but it does have a big collection of different bills from several countries. which was interesting to look at. The food was surprisingly good (amazing pasta!) and the service was good.

We popped in here before grabbing the ferry to Ometepe. After looking around to find a server, we finally got someone's attention. We grabbed drinks, and tostones (which were decent, but of course come at a tourist price) and the had to find someone again to get our bill. It's convenient to kill hour, but don't expect much.

Thank you anyway for your visit. We thought (and many people wrote us) to have a good service, but evidently is not as we thought. We are sorry for the slow service of the day of your visit. We'll try to improve. Thank you to write it us.

We had a great lunch here whilst waiting for the ferry. The lake fish was cooked beautifully. It's a great location on the beach looking over to Ometepe. There was a big concert on for Easter the day we were there which was fun. The food was so good when we made the return journey we stopped in for lunch again.

I never thought I'd have such a vast and great menu in a place like San Jorge. The restaurant offers a variety of Italian dishes as well as local food. The owner Dario is very friendly and attentive. The portion was more than enough and tasted great! Excellent views of the lake. Will definitely be passing by on my next trip to San Jorge.

This was a good meal, though I wouldn't say we were "wowed." The portion was right-on, though they were out of one dish we first tried to order in addition to a beverage we wanted. We had the spaghetti salmon and the garlic/oil spaghetti. It took a wee bit longer than I would have liked, though we had nowhere to be, so it didn't matter except for being hungry! The displays of foreign money on the walls makes for neat decoration, and the view from inside looking out to the lake is fantastic!
