“El Tiscapa - Managua, Nicaragua”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

I had passed by this restaurant more times than I can count with the intention of stopping in. It is located off a busy thoroughfare but once you enter into the parking lot, it is as if you've been transported out of the city. Upon climbing the stairs to enter, you encounter a large very tastefully decorated dining area with ceiling fans. There are two additional areas for dining with air conditioning. Upon entering, my friends and I were asked where we would like to be seated and taken to our table by our waiter. We were presented with menus and immediately asked what we would like to drink. The attention by our waiter was excellent! The men ordered the "Tiscapa Churasco", 8 ounces of steak that was cooked to medium rare perfection! Excellent! Recommend highly! The lady of the group ordered a lightly breaded fish filet meuniere which was also excellent! Only disappointment was that no fresh vegetables were served with either entree.

“Great place with a BAD experience”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

El Tiscapa is the baby brother of Los Ranchos. It is a great place with great food but not well managed.

Last time I visited it one of my friends got a huge hair on their steak. When we protested the waiter told us we had to produce the evidence so they could be sure we were not making it up to get free food.

First of all we weren´t asking for free food, and second of all, how the hell are you going to ¨ask for evidence¨. Needless to say I will not be coming back here in a while!.

“A local favorite. Tasty Steaks. A bit out of the way”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

A local institution, this place serves up tasty steaks! A bit out of the way, you will need a car/cab to get there, but the food is tasty and the prices are fair.

“Cigar Safari”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

Our group stopped at El Tiscapa after being picked up at the airport. They allowed cigar smoking in the open air portion of the restuarant. For those that didn't like the smoke, they offered several enclosed indoor seating arrangements, away from the smoke.
The lunch menu was varied and reflected the local cuisine. The portions allowed for, a salad (crisp and tasty), the sampling of appetizers all without being too full for the entre. Yet you left your meal fully satisfied.
The service was very good with our wait staff always on the look out to cater to our needs, without being bothersome.
Afterwards we enjoyed a cigar without drawing the ire of other patrons.
A must dine at restuarant

“Get the house special steak, medium well.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 March 2014 via mobile

This is a great, clean restaurant with American standards for food preparation. The water used to clean the food is filtered so the salads can be enjoyed without worry. The garlic sauce is another flavor to enjoy. You can eat outside or in air conditioned rooms. I could write a book about our food (chicken, fish, steak, appetizers). Finally, service is the best we have seen. English is spoken here in small amounts.
