Description: Nectar Restaurant & Bar is located on Calle La Calzada, a pedestrian-friendly street in the heart of Granada's historic colonial downtown. Located only 1/2 block East (towards the Lake) of Parque Central & the main Cathedral, our street-side dining offers up the best people watching around while our beautiful covered courtyard provides some peaceful respite from Granada's hustle and bustle. We've got you covered for whatever mood your in. We delight in offering a menu featuring some traditional Nicaraguan fare (Enchiladas, Tostones con Queso, Ropa Vieja and more), wonderful organic salads, tasty ceviche, fish tacos, burritos & homemade desserts, including Cheesecake, Flan de Coco and our world famous Lava Cake. ALL of our rum cocktails are made with Nicaraguan Flor de Cana rum, never the cheap stuff. We also offer up some local Craft Beer, made available by our friends at La Portena in San Juan Del Sur as well as Campo Brew Co. out of Tola. We source all our products locally and shop daily to ensure we have the freshest of the fresh. And perhaps most importantly, our staff is the real thing-- warm, friendly, and genuinely caring. Hard-working Nicaraguan hospitality at its very best! Be sure to check out our 2x1 Happy Hour from 3-6 Daily or stop by and enjoy our below zero beer. Perfect for those hot Granada days!

“Great people watching, average food”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

The outdoor seating is on the street so you get to watch the tourists, street vendors, etc. The food is basic and the service average.

“Perfect place to people watch with great cocktails!”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

On the main touristy strip, this place is really great. Attentive staff, great cocktails, good food (although not amazing) and perfect for watching the world go by.

“Really good food, slightly expensive”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

Got the spicy chicken sandwich and plantain chips which were incredible. The only thing stopping this from being 5 stars is the added tax and tip alongside the fact it was quite pricey for what it was. However, if you don't mind spending a bit extra it's a good place to eat.

“Great Food, Quiet Back Courtyard, Happy Hour and Free Wifi”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

We had an early dinner here in the back courtyard. The food was delicious! We also happen to be there during happy hour, so we treated ourselves to many ridiculously good mojitos and sangria. They also have free wifi, so it's a great spot to spend some time drinking and uploading photos.

“Good food...but beware”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

I am from the states and was down there for a medical mission. The owner is American and he runs it like a business. Be prepared to over-pay for decent food and get gouged on taxes and tip. My 180 C$ meal ended up costing me 350 C$ with a coke. I would beware, there are much better places down the street! This place has potential, just needs to be more professional and lower their prices. Also, letting in street beggars that won't leave you alone in the private room in the back, is just sad.
