Went with family and it was a nice place to eat and get a drink. Nothing special there other then it seemed to be a safe location to exchange money with local money handlers.

This place is very good located right in the main square of the city, it has a good ambience and you can enjoy of live music on wednesday and weekend. Food always takes a long time and the quality is very poor. The most expensive beer in the city and the worst overpriced wine (Lazo).

Went here to listen to live music. Our waitress/bartender made great drinks and was pleasant. The appetizers were just mediocre but that's not why we'd choose a place like Monkeys

When we arrived, they had just opened after their prayer group. We went for an evening cocktail. The food was tasty but a bit overpriced. Strange layout.

I stopped here for 2 beers (regular 12oz Tonas) and the total was 105 Cordobas... (the most I've paid at ANY bar in all of Nic is 35C/beer. The roof-top location and views of the parque/church are cool, but in my opinion, it's not worth 52.5C per beer just for the atmosphere. I didn't eat there so I cannot attest... More

They had an amazing guitarist and a great atmosphere. The staff was young and fun and I could have stayed there all night.
