Ended up here when the restaurant I wanted to go was closed (it was Sunday).

I had fish carpaccio and fish taco, along with a glass of margarita, then a white wine. The tab came out to about $40 which is very expensive by Nicaraguan standard, but not so by US. Was it worth? Probably...

The food was definitely fresh. The place was very comfortable. I had a very nice relaxing dinner.

Kevin's place is awesome. My husband, two small children, and mother all loved this place. We weren't really feeling the restaurant scene in Granada for the most part, but then we stumbled upon this unique option on our last night. It's intimate, with around 5 tables, and you can see the chef at work in the attached kitchen. The décor is Beatles-focused in the least kitschy way possible, almost like an upscale dinner coffee shop...Great bar, which also had the capability of whipping up the most high-quality chocolate milks my kids have ever experienced, complete with fancy glasses to show them a good time. Kevin explained that the food theory is local; he grows some of the herbs, fruits, and veggies himself nearby. Original SW American/ Nicaraguan style meals--yum. We could have stayed and chatted around the table all night This place is a bit pricey, but as high-quality as you could want on the streets of Granada. Highly recommended, and will definitely return next time we are in Nicaragua!

I ate here twice the guacamole was out of this world as was the mango bread dessert I had the sea bass and it was good not great! I think that it is worth a stop for sure a little expensive for Granada more like Chicago prices but Kevin the owner is cool and his food is fresh and organic

One of two restaurants we ate at twice on our visit. This place is owned by an American from New Mexico. He said he never thought of being a restaurant owner and main chef, but it seemed to be a fit. And he's right - the food is some of the best I've had, Kevin and his staff are creative gods when it comes to food. You can't visits Granada without eating at imagine
