We offer vegan, vegetarian and meat, fish, chicken options. Our staff are well-paid and respected for their professionalism. Mon-Saturday 11 am - 11 pm. Sunday 11am - 9 pm. We have been in business in Managua since 2003. Proceeds from the restaurant are used to help the Ola Verde Foundation (Fundación Ola Verde), a local NGO that designs educational materials about making consumer food habits healthier using natural locally produced ingredients. We have recently remodeled the interior terrace, now called the Secret Garden, and usually have musicians or performing artists for cultural nights on weekends. Please check facebook for program information. Our organic food store and take-out delicatessen open 7 am - 10 pm each day except Sunday at 11 am - 9pm.

Much appreciated vegetarian option in urban Managua. Fantastic meals both times I've been there. Owner is on-hand and you can tell she takes pride in offering the best offered produce from her suppliers. Plus, she has a nice little market where you can find whole grains like quinoa and a good assortment of locally made organ and/or vegan food items. Staff is wonderful. They are amazingly attentive and serve with a smile. I always love to find al fresco when I can and this place offers a comfortable outdoor dining area. I highly recommend this restaurant when in Managua for a vegetarian or meat dining option. The hot sauces are the best I've had in Managua.

great food, clean place, easy to get to. Can even take some of that greatness with you in packages to go.

High quality salads and other vegetarian food - some of it to go. Owner prides herself on locally sourced ingredients. Nice terrace, good atmosphere. Expensive compared to its competitors locally - but all that freshness comes at a higher cost.

Recommended. Put it in your Managua rotation.

The eggplant appetizer was mind-blowing, and so were the chicken kabobs with cous cous. Ask for the hot sauce ;) I am addicted to this place - and I rarely say this after having lived in New York City for years.

Unusual and delicious vegetarian food. They have lots of different choices with fresh fruit and local recipes. You do see a lot of foreigners but that doesn't bother us.
