I have been coming to El Timon for at least 10 years. I am happy to report that they still provide great customer service and the food is great. First of all you need to know that they specialize in Sea Food Nicaraguan Style (This is definitely different than Mexican food, but it is great.). That said, I have had multiple dishes on the menu including the "Pescado Tipi Tapa", garlic shrimp, shrimp cocktail, and more importantly it seems that for one reason or another one of the companions on the trip is always sick when we arrive in San Juan del Sur and we have always asked at "El Timon" for an item that is not in the menu, but they happily prepare it for us. I am referring to the "chicken soup". On this last trip I happened to be the one sick when we arrived and I asked the waiter to please prepare it. He immediately said yes and 20 minutes later came back with what has to be considered one of the best chicken soups I have ever had. I think when I go back next time even if I am not sick I will be ordering this.
The view is great and the staff remains friendly and very much wanting to provide great customer service. They provide great service at a fair price. Absolutely recommend this place.
