“upper class restaurant”
Reviewed 24 February 2013

we had a table with view on the river . The steacks are famous : we took a contrefilet with sauce bearnaise and papas nicas. It cost only 10 dollars and it was prepared as asked (between medium (à point) and well-done). Service is good . This restaurant is mainly visited by the local upperclass and business men.

“Worms in food”
Reviewed 10 January 2013

First, I would like to say that the food was actually very tasty, though the rice and salad portions are quite small (not for an adult), the bad part was that after eating a part of my lunch, I discovered very tiny worms in my chimichurry souce!

I took the plate to the front and they did apologize and offered to bring me another plate and then they explained that the worms were probably from the salad and not the souce....great, the salad was the first thing I ate! So they did bring me another plate, minus the salad, but you would think that after the fiasco they would offer lunch on "the house" NO way, I was still charged. I guess this is no U.S. steakhouse.

Besides the worms, they have a big problems with flys, but it is more tolareable if you do not sit on the balcony or probably a night visit would be better. They really need to get those violet lights that zap insects.

Other than that the food is tasty! Good eating

Head and shoulders above the other Matagalpa restaurants when it comes to quality, ambiance, and service. Highly recommend it. Had a fantastic steak here.

“One of the best in Matagalpa”
Reviewed 8 November 2012

Relatvely elegant, with good food and service overlooking "the river" (more a stream), if you like. It probably has the best wine lit in town.
