“Great American-style cuisine in a lovely setting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 August 2013

I recently dined at Porterhouse Steaks for the first time with a friend. We were immediately impressed by the decor and attention to detail. The fresh flowers, candles and rustic wood/wagon wheel decor were beautiful.

Our server was attentive and polite.

We received an amuse-bouche that was exploding with flavor, although we're not sure what it was.

We started our meal with the Lobster Bisque which was creamy and full of lobster and a Bloomin' Onion. The onion was a spot-on re-creation of the same dish in the States, including the yummy sauce.

For dinner, we enjoyed the hamburger -- it's huge! -- and the Churrasco with grilled potato. Everything was delicious and the portions were generous.

We shared a slice of Carrot Cake for dessert and while it was very rich, it was also very expensive compared to the other items we ordered -- US$7.50!

Our meal, including tip and tax was less than US$50, a steal for such delicious food! I'd highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best chicken wings in Nicaragua”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2013 via mobile

Yes, it's true I ordered wings in a steakhouse, but when you do you will thank me. Great service, food and the owner came out to visit us during lunch. You will love this place and we will be back.

“Expensive, but a good meal and excellent wines”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2013

Our bill was over $100.00 for two of us ordering the less expensive fare and a glass of wine. The service was excellent as was the food...but Nicaragua is generally half that price for the four and five star restaurants.
