We have been here twice, once in 2013 and then again in 2014. Both times we were with a group of between 14-20 people. The first time it was 'good' the second it was much better. Always had good service, and hey, it's tough to serve that many people to begin with, so I didn't hold it against them the first time. I don't love cheese based apps, but you have to try the jalepeno app (that has cheese ) IT IS NO JALEPENO POPPER (which I don't like) that is frozen and deep fried, it's GREAT!!! Those that ate steak or sausage LOVED their meals and I really enjoyed the garlic chicken dish.

Located in a beautiful building with a lovely patio/garden, this place serves delicious food. From starters to mains to desserts: we loved everything. The service too was high standard. We recommend this place!

The menu had fairly good variety to choose from. Specialising in steaks, we chose to go with that. The food was really well cooked with amazing flavours. Really amazing flavours.
We had super attentive waiters which may annoy some (possibly to ensure the tip is paid) but we had a bit of fun with them miming our way through the language barrier.
It's a bit on the costly side but the food and the ambience makes up for it

You get what you pay for. Not a budget restaurant. Not what I would consider Nicaraguan, but I didn't experience any memorable food in Nicaragua.

We were told this is the best steak house in Leon. We had high hope because we had had some great meat in Nicaragua up to then. The restaurant itself is lovely and the staff were very friendly and helpful. We did not have the best ever steak here but perhaps it was just not their night.
