“Good place to eat in the center of town!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2014

I had 3 meals here while in Granada. The fish and chips were the best I had in Nicaragua. The filet mignon was also very good and around half the price of El Zaguan although not quite as good. It is quieter here around lunch time and easier to get an outdoor table than at dinner time. In terms of atmosphere, you can have street vendors trying to sell you items while you are here but if you are at the right table you can also see street performers doing a show so it has it's good and bad. All the prices are reasonable and I would definitely eat here again.

“Great Place for Food and Smoothies”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

Being our third winter in Granada an we have visited this eatery every time, great food and smoothies at very reasonable prices, some of the best on the Calzada strip.

Forgone the classic fish & chips and ordered their fish dish, well presented, tasty and they did substitute the rice with mashed potatoes. With our many visits this year over the past couple of months, staff have become "amigos" and we enjoy every visit.

The smoothies, as their sign states, are some of the best in town and for C$45 who can argue.

We will be back until we leave, and await our return next year.

“A worthy break from Nicaraguan food, and probably worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

After being disappointed many times about the Nicaraguan concept of steak, we were pleasantly surprised with a quality Western-style steak here, lots of good cold beer, prompt service, and fascinating views of street life. The owner, an Irish expat, even came out to chat. We liked it here so much we came twice. The steak was excellent, but we did specify that it must not be overcooked.

“Authentic Irish Bar & Fantastic Time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2014

I was in Granada for a week with a group of friends for a wedding. The bride's family lives just outside Granada, and they had recommended O'Shea's to us for cold beer, lively atmosphere, and a satisfying hangover brunch. The bar is on the 'old main drag' just off the plaza, so you can people-watch outside while imbibing a tasty liter of cold beer. The service is quite attentive for a pub, and certainly more on the ball than a lot of the other more slothful spots in Granada. The Irish breakfast (at 2 in the afternoon) was a perfect cure for a long liquor-fueled night beforehand. Food was definitely tasty. The owners are indeed Irish, and they even played the Pogues and Wolfe Tones on the sound system for us. Slainte!
