We had heard good things about this place and in general all the reviews are great except for one. Suffice it to say that both my wife and I were super happy with the experience. Service was prompt, attentive and friendly (gracias Quique 😀) and he answered all our questions and made great recommendations. We started with ceviche azteca and... More

We've just had dinner in this restaurant and it was excellent. The service provided by Quique was first class. The food was very good and reasonably priced, would definitely recommend.

I am very sure that this is the absolute best fish restaurant in Granada. They offer lots of different dishes with fish and everything will done. The service is good and your can see the owners really like their restaurant. Everything seems quite clean and your can order in English if needed. We will come back.

The restaurant is immediately arresting from the street, due to the blue and white colorful theme. Bright blue napkins on bright blue tablecloths. So much better than the usual paper napkins that disintegrate in your hands within a minute. My friend is a vegetarian and she had three choices. Her dish was so pretty, we photographed it. I thoroughly enjoyed... More

After discussing the fish options with the waiter in Spanish- I opted for the red snapper which was described as being "whole" thus slightly more expensive. After a somewhat longish wait given the circumstances (we were the only customers) my fish dish arrived and looked fishy inasmuch as there was an obvious lack of half of one of the sides!... More

After a month of travels through Nicaragua, we wanted to treat ourselves to some local seafood in a nice place. We nailed it coming here! The place is super cute and looks fancy but has a nice comfortable feel. They have daily specials, which we got a seafood platter. Huge plates! Fresh and so tasty. You cannot get seafood in... More
