“Great place for steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 May 2014

Had a chance to have lunch in this restaurant. Parking is on the street out front which is is bit tight since it is a busy road. The owner is very gracious and greeted as as we came into the door. We booked a private room on the 2nd floor which is great if you want to have some privacy . The table can accommodate 6 but there is a bar area where you can have pre meal drinks. There is also a toilet on this level. The specialty of the house are meats so I ordered the New York steak which is excellent and is really a big portion. It was served together with mashed potatoes and steamed vegetables.

“I have nothing to complain about!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2014

Being honest, I've been at this restaurant a couple of times and I haven't found any flaw on it. The service is spectacular, the place is impeccable and enviroment is nice and the fod is delicious! i love the parmesan chicken with vegetables, that's my favorite dish there. Although it is a bit expensive, it is completely worth it.

“Amazing Restaurant Must go if ever in Managua!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

This place was absolutely delicious. It is very modern and the food quality and service is great. It is a little pricey for being in Nicaragua but worth it. We got the Terminator and a churrasco and they were both delicious. We also had a chocolate desert I can't remember the name with ice cream and it was great too. Definitely recommend this place. If ever in the area don't miss out.

“Great if you are dying for a steak, little pricey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

We were craving meat, a huge steak in fact and this place hit the spot. Don Candido was recommended to us by locals and did not disappoint. Service was good and they took obvious pelasure in making sure we were happy. Howvere, you're paying the same price you would in US or Europe, main courses run $30 each.

I didn't love that they included the "voluntary" recommended tip rather than letting us decide how much to leave. Ironically, we would have left more than the 10% they suggested but including it was a little cheeky.
