Our seacond visit to Nicaragua in 3 years. Our first meal had to be at El Colibri and surprised to be recognised by the staff. Great food highly recommended as always, and wonderful to see Mary Jane again the best host in town. A shame due to unforeseen circumstances we couldn't make our last meal there and say our goodbyes. We whish Mary and all her staff all the best for the future.
Hope to see you again Dean & Nina England Xx

We couldn't have picked a better place, the atmosphere,the food and the service all excellent. I had the Filet Mignon with Gorgonzola and my husband had the Stuffed Chicken Breast. Both delicious. I would have rated this a very good but we were surprised that we were not able to get the Lasagna on the menu. We were told by the waiter that there had been 2 orders and they were gone. Does that mean they were left over from the previous evening? Make reservations as many people are turned away.

Our second visit. Unsurpassed ambiance; mediocre cuisine. The baked eggplant (unpeeled) was mush. The filet mignon was not tenderloin. Does Madame really think her clientele does not know the difference? So go for a drink and some appetizers, enjoy the lovely decor and great service - and save your cords for the Bristol in Granada.

The eclectic decor is the first thing that will catch you attention. Walk around the entire restaurant to see all the details that were placed in creating this cozy setting. The food is fabulous every time. Very consistent.

It is just the same old crap in every place you go the only diference is the view and price. If you can eat it, it is Excellent. Just once in a while it seems to be very good, now why is that? Maybe you have not eaten for a long time or the price is really cheap. I wish people would be more honest and say it like it REALLY is. I will never go back to this place.
