The food is nice has a good variety of things, Local food, Mexican, Sea food (ocean is only 20min away) and international cuisine, Service is pretty good and all of the walls are decorated with the local dance, folklore and most important people of Leon one of them Ruben Dario Father of the modernism and prince of the Spanish language.They are open for lunch and dinner and probably have the best view of any restaurant in Leon, have a nice breeze that run through the place and a nice view to the street which you can see the locals walking around the main square.Go and enjoy this place and give a try to local own places.

Set right on the square by the cathedral, the location of El Sesteo is perfect for people watching. We enjoyed a terrific lunch here. In particular the refrescos are amazing. I had a pineapple one that was perfectly sweet and tart. I also had a great salad and my husband had a really good sandwich. Reasonable prices and good quality.

Unfortunately, we had a tight schedule and we order the simplest dish just to fill our stomachs, being this the case, our plate has a good taste but wasn't like "OMG" (jajaja), so I really want to go again, enjoy the place and pick a dish, seems I can tell the serve good food. I liked very much to location of the restaurant and the view that you have of the town.

El Sesteo is located in the best people watching location, right in the center of everything and facing the beautiful Leon Cathedral. The food was excellent and the prices are great!! Must go

Great restaurant! Originally we wanted to avoid it because we thought it would be one of those restaurants that caters to tourists and serves less than appetizing food. This was NOT the case! Food was excellent, service was the best I've experienced in Central America and the location is great for people watching on the square. We actually went twice in two days - and everything we ordered was great. Highly recommended!

A nice European-style, open-air cafe. Great coffee, and right across from the cathedral. Good prices, good service. Open early enough to grab a coffee before heading out to the beach in the morning.
