This place has a wide menu which is usually a bad sign but not in this case. The curries (both Indian & Thai) are really good, the best probably being the thai red beef but the fresh locally reared burger was nice too. This delivers to the great local B&B Via Verde if you are staying there.

We ate in Campestre twice a day everyday. The food is varied and amazing. Everything from Thai chicken curry to falafel wraps were made fresh to order with locally grown organic ingredients. Just do yourself a favor and visit this place once. You will be hooked.

Wholesome, delicious and super fresh. I could eat at this please for breakfast, lunch and dinner. I enjoyed the big salads and ability to pick many things off the menu that wasn't laced with salt, oil or carbs! Try their brownie for a real treat.

Directly at the main road in Balgue, Cafe Campestre is a great place. Nicely decorated, good atmosphere and good food. All the ingredients are from a own garden/farm. Absolutely advisable!

Cafe Campestre was recommend to us by our hotel staff and it certainly didn't disappoint. The menu is varied and offers many different types of cuisines not native to Nicaragua but using local ingredients. Its a nice break from the typical Nicaraguan fare, which is delicious in its own right, but probably something you will have eaten many times during... More

We had to come to rural Nicaragua to eat the best Thai food of our lives. The menu is varied and everything is prepared fresh from the organic garden and farm and made with love. Beautiful relaxed ambiance. Don't leave Omatepe without having dinner here!

Had delivery twice to Selvista Guest house. Maybe the pasta lost its flavor during transport, but the red curry was amazing! Based on the garlic bread, the sandwiches are probably very yummy too.

Good menu, good staff, nice ambience and reasonable prices. We had different curries, and we're not dissappointed. Well worth a visit if in the lazy crab or near there.
