This gem of a small restaurant / bar is hard to find but worth the look. Famous for excellent pizza and romantic rendezvous, weekend disco and live musicians. Just to the north of the pier where you catch the ferry.

After a tiring trip my best friend and I arrived in San Jorge and quickly found our hotel. The front desk guy recommended us Sol y Arena resto. He said it was "authentic" italian food, so we got there and order fish & chips and a "della nonna" pizza. We were really hungry and were looking forward to enjoy a nice meal... sadly it was not the case. We waited for quite a while to get our food (even though there was no one else there) and when it came, it looked delicious. The fish was ok but the pizza has this horrible taste!! like soap!!! we found out that, at the kitchen, they made a mistake and add gorgonzola cheese which was rotten.. we asked the waiter to make this up for us and they made a small tiny pizza for us and to our dismay they charged us for the disgusting pizza!!

My best friend lived in Italy and knows about pizza so she mentioned several times that we wanted to eat a nice pizza and the waiter assured us this was going to be the case. Overall I think we had a bad experience. Gotta say the waiter was quite good...

Hot, tired and hungover, we were halfway through a long journey and stumbled upon this fantastic spot whilst waiting for the ferry to Ometepe Island. The restaurant serves authentic Italian food at reasonable prices and even has some good wines. It is an open air and has views over the isla de ometepte.
