“Enjoy the terrace and some great Nicaraguan food.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2013

The restaurant is set in a local neighborhood, and I was pleasantly surprised once I arrived. I sat out on the terrace, as it was a nice day, not too hot, and with a nice breeze. A very relaxing atmosphere. I was greeted promptly with a menu, and had the Tea de Jamaica to drink, which was excellent. They have a varied menu of many local dishes, and I want to return to try more.
I had a Churassco special, and it was tender and cooked as ordered. If you want a real local place, where the locals go, with typical food served by friendly staff, I highly recommend the Cocina de Dona Haydee. I had lunch there today, and may return for dinner!

“Excellent Nicaraguan Food Sampler”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2013

A Nicaraguan friend took me here for a business lunch when I asked for some typical Nicaraguan food. A very nice restaurant. I had one of their sampler plates which was outstanding. Food was very tasty and served promptly. I really enjoyed the food and probably would not have been adventurous enough to order any of the things individually.

“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2013

Famed nicaraguan restaurant with typical and elegant ambiance, Delicious food and courteous staff. In two words: Quality and Quantity (loved the nica dessert "bunuelos" and their "Cabayo bayo") Highly recommended!
