If you are a steak lover, this is the right place to come. They have ten different cuts of beef, with detailed descriptions on how tender, how fatty, how to best serve it etc. Plus they have a section on the menu which shows exactly what rare / medium rare / medium / well done actually means in Nicaragua. So... More

The only bad thing about this place is that is located in front of the big river of Matagalpa, but nevertheless you forget that once you're inside of the restaurant. It is pretty nice to chill and eat a delicious food. I'm vegetarian so I asked for Gallo Pinto and other stuff and trust me that was delicious. Me and... More

Ordered a New York strip. It came out ice cold to the touch. The only thing I can think of is that it was cooked as a mistake before, put in the fridge or freezer, than when I ordered it it was placed on the grill for a minute to heat it up. I have worked in restaurants all my... More

Went there a few weeks ago with some friends and we were all amazed with this restaurant! We ordered churrascos and fillet mignon and they were delicious! Service and presentation was excellent and the decoration of the restaurant is nice as well.

It was to be a treat for me because so far, I had not eaten beef that was edible. The server was attentive and even though there were a few things they were out of, he told me quickly and apologized and offered something else. I finally decided on a ribeye and a salad. He said it came with two... More

Toro Bravo is a decent restaurant with a very good and varied menu with reasonably priced meals and drinks. The serving staff was excellent and patient with our party of four which spoke very little Spanish. Our meals arrived in an acceptable amount of time and were delicious. The neighbourhood where the restaurant is located is a pretty sketchy one,... More

Having read the tripadvisor reviews I was not sure what to expect - we went with friends for a relaxed night out - the restaurant was busy, but that did not impact the service which was warm and attentive. Cocktails were brought to the table quickly as were our appetizers - i strongly recommend the tostones rellena con camarones -... More

Located in a shady street. Some drunks at bar and meat was not worth the price. We initially just wanted to see a menu but we're shuffled quickly to a table. Since I was wanting a good piece of meat, I stayed. Bad service and meat was not great.
