They have menu or buffet, the food is good, as is the service. I recommend it for business. It's not outstanding, but it's more then enough for your everyday lunch.

It was recommended by people to me, but I did not like this restaurant. Very dark inside, their soups are actually bad. I don't think I'll be coming back here.

One of Managua´s Most famous restaurants when it comes to mexican food. It was established in 1998 with great success. The food is great. You can find Mexican, Nicaraguan and international dishes. The ambiance at night is cozy. They have a mexican decorated backyard and live music thursday through saturday. One of the great offers they have is an "All you can eat" grill buffet. You can eat as much meat as you like for less than 10 dollars. At the bar, the Margaritas is their specialty.
