Within the past 4 years I have tried numerous restaurants in Nicaragua. Meson Español is said to be one of the good places. Unfortunately they managed to serve me the worst dinner I have had within this country yet. Even though they are said to be one of the decent places.
We ordered appetizers - chorizo, gambas and pulpo gallego. The chorizo was fine. The pulp did not resemble typical pulpo gallego at all. It was squid with red pepper on top served on potatoes. The potatoes were half raw and uneatable.
The gambas where awful. Completely dry and impossible to free them from their skin. Apparently they had suffered freezer burn or the like.
For main course we had paella. This was eatable. But not especially good either.
Above all the manager did not react very well to our criticism and was complaining about difficulties of food import to Nicaragua.
Just don't put that kind of food on your menu then. There is plenty of good product to be bought in Nicaragua.
At any comedor at the market they serve better food than at this "fancy" and expensive restaurant in San Juan del Sur.
And with Spanish cuisine this stuff did not have any resemblance.
