Reviewed yesterday NEW

We went based on very good reviews but it did not meet our expectations. The food and service was okay but not good enough to be fine dining which is how they are priced.

I usually never write reviews, but I feel that today I receive the worst service! I went to el Zaguán for dinner following advise from people at TripAdvisor, seems like a nice place to have dinner from the outside. I order Churrasco maya after taking a look at the menu. My first thought was hmm higher than a steak house... More

The prices are as high as in the States, but the experience rivals any fine dining anywhere. You could cut the steak with a butter knife, the plantains and cheese are grilled to perfection, and they make the best refried beans I have ever tasted. The service is impeccable, the wine list extensive, and the atmosphere intimate and warm. Great... More

Steaks Aussies would be proud of. Coupled with a Malbec red. And great service. Could not recommend highly enough.

We ate here on our last evening and everything was delicious. The Churrasco was cooked perfectly and the chimichurri sauce was great. Our table also had the steak wrapped in bacon and the Parrillada - both were excellent. Pitchers of sangria were replenished quickly and the service was very good. The one drawback is that we sat in the courtyard... More

We went because a friend recommend the place to us. It is a very nice place and had a lot of people that is always a good sign. The prices are one of the highest of the city, so that is not that attractive, considering there are other steak houses for lower prices, but apart from that the food was... More

We enjoyed this restaurant very much after an intense hike that day! We needed a healthy, filling meal and nice ambiance. The location delivered on all counts. We had fish (sea bass) cooked two different ways and of course Tona beer. Our waiter was fun, upbeat, and helpful!

Disappointing steakhouse. My husband's tenderloin tasted "strong" and I had a vegetarian grilled vegetable plate. Our 3 year old was my happy either with her fish sticks. Overall our waiter was very nice, efficient service and friendly. The "host/manager" was not particularly pleasant. He seated us at the worst table. Maybe it was due to my 3 year old daughter....

We dined there twice, and had to have the chimichurri steak twice there. It was my son's first time to have the dish in Nicaragua and he thought it was delicious. Great scenery and service.
