This lovely restaurant is at the SE corner of the San Juan del Sur church. There is a fun, lit, stain glass sign of the "humminbird" el colibri. The food was hot (seemingly unusual in Nicaragua) and very tasty. There were a number of vegetarian options - the Mediterranean vegetable stew on couscous was very good. The covered outdoor area was breezy, fun, and romantic - in other words, great ambiance. For a beef dish, veggie stew, 2 cervezas and passionfruit juice, + tax/tip, it came to $26 - fairly reasonable for this type of meal in SJDS. The service was comparatively good. We would return if we came back to SJDS.

We ate at El Colibri on our first night in SJDS based on TA reviews. Whilst the ambience in the restaurant is amazing, and the service was OK, the food was nothing to rush back for. My wife enjoyed her dinner more than I did, but there have been several places in town we're eaten in since that I have preferred more, in terms of food, service and value for money

Enjoyed the ambience created in a courtyard setting, beautiful stained glass table settings and interesting artifacts around the restaurant. The sangria went down well. Good flavours, varied menu, potatoes amazing. Service was friendly.

I love this place. The food is superb and not expensive for what you get. The atmosphere is warm and comfortable. I love sitting on the cushions or in the garden. I usually eat the vegetarian dishes because they are so good. But the meat and fish are excellent also.

Had the pleasure to dine at El Colibri many times whilst in San Juan del Sur. By far my favourite in town. Amazing food, reasonable prices, large portions, nice variety, great friendly service, beautiful surroundings and good wine. Definitely a must when in the area! Guaranteed wonderful meal!
