    In the Calle la Calzada: Great grilled meat

    by Pieter11 Written Feb 13, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the Calle la Calzada, two building north from the earlier mentioned "Restaurant Don Luca", you will find a good restaurant where you can have a great piece of grilled meat. You'll not find this restaurant by looking for the sign, or by listening to the waiters to call you in, but simply by following your nose to the delicious smell of the barbeque.

    Inside the restaurant you'll see a small square room in which you can sit; not that cosy, but there also is a nice open patio in the backwith some tables. In here you can have a look at the stars above you and at the cook that is preparing your meat a few metres away on the big barbeque.

    I had a big piece of beef which was grilled perfectly. The rest of the dish was not that special, but the beef made it all ok.

    PS: When we were there it started raining: the power fell out, candles were brought out, the patio was closed because it became too wet, and inside is became very noisy and wet too because of the emergency engine that was brought in and several leaks in the roof.

    Eurocafe: Back home for a few minutes

    by Pieter11 Written Feb 13, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you are sick of rice and beans or you want to taste something different then instant coffee for once, then the Eurocafe, close to the Parque Central is a very good place to go to.

    In this coffeehouse you can get all kinds of things that you normally would only get "back home": bean-coffee in all kinds of varieties: espresso, cappucchino, cafe latte etc. And together with these drinks you can also get things like a tuna-sandwich, a muffin, an omelet-sandwich or hamburgers. If you're in Granada -or in Central America- longer, this can be heaven for once...

    And besides these things to eat and drink, you can also buy some to take back home or to your hotel: real coffee, cakes and cornflakes... So not integrated, but yet it can be so nice.

    Parque Central: Collect your breakfast at the Parque Central

    Fruitstall in the Parque Central

    When you are looking for a good breakfast, there are plenty of places in Granada to go to where you can get good meals. But if you are looking for a quick and cheap breakfast, don't go into any restaurant but just have a walk around the Parque Central.

    In and around the park you will find everything you need for a good breakfast. There are several stalls that sell (instant)coffee for only a few cents. A Hot Dog (even early in the morning) can be bought for 50 dollarcents. Fresh fruit is sold in small bags and cookies are there on huge plates.

    Everything here is very cheap, and most of it is pretty good too! And it is also a very nice way of seeing the city "waking up".

    Don Luca: Fantastic pizza's!!!

    The pizza oven at Don Luca's
    1 more image

    At the time I reached Granada in Nicaragua, after almost two weeks of travelling, I already had some very good meals in a lot of places. But on the first night in Granada I had a dinner that was close to the best one ever! I went to the Italian restaurant Don Luca in the Calle La Calzada, at only 50 metres from the guesthouse I stayed in.

    The restaurant had a very pleasant atmosphere, with surprisingly good service, a colonial interior and great food! The mainactivity are the pizza's, but they also have things like pasta's, salads and real (!!!) beancoffee and Italian wines.

    The pizza I had was with salami, ham, mushrooms, tomato and cheese and it was fantastic! There are three sizes: small (about 25 cm), medium (about 30 cm) and big (about 35 cm). I was hungry so I took to big one: and it was a heavy job to finish is, but every bite was a great pleasure. And for this big pizza I had to pay about 6 dollars: worth every cent!

    It is great to see the pizza's being made by the two young guys in the kitchen. The big firewood oven is in full sight so you see your pizza's being prepared at a few metres distance.

  • Jimmy 3 fingers: RICH, NOT health food

    by quinlantreeman Written Oct 17, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As fine as any 4 star resturant anywhere in the world but at third world prices. Don't tell your cardiologist! The food is sinfuly rich and served in large portions. Only sweet cream butter is used in the sauses. From the warm rolls with the salad, to the finest desserts the food and service is 4 star. You will not be dissappointed. The menu varies daily/weekly depending on what is available. It must be fresh and of the highest quality. When he has them, the bwownie for dessert is definately for 2. There are always fresh fish and steak entres.

    If you are there late and extra lucky, Jimmy may break out his Guitar. Back to the 60's we go.

    Pizzeria Don Lucas: Good Value Pizza Place

    by gdilieto Updated Oct 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Pizzeria Don Lucas is a good choice for a casual pizza meal. The pizza is decent for international standards, the location, in Calle la Calzada, the main walking avenue of Granada, a short walk from the Central Square, is convenient and safe, the environment is not bad, with an inner lounge and table outsides on the walkway; finally the price is reasonable. All in all, a good value pizza place.

    Casa San Francisco: Fine Dining Experience in Granada

    by gdilieto Updated Oct 10, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    2 more images

    The Restaurant of the hotel/guesthouse Casa San Francisco was my favorite choice for fine dining in Granada. The cuisine is Latin-fusion with dishes from the local tradition as well as Mexican classic, Italian and Asian plates with a good choice of meats, seafood, veggies and pasta. The menu is extensive and attractive, the food is well prepared, presented and served; finally the price is reasonable. The bartender prepares good drinks from Latin America traditions including the national "Nica Libre" made with local white rum and Sprite. I did not check the wine list. The restaurant has a dining room, where also the bar and the Hotel reception desk are located, and a much more attractive inner patio with only few tables, therefore, if interested, having a reserved for you in the patio is a good idea. If you are looking for quality and somewhat sophisticated food in a cozy and pretty environment, Casa San Francisco is a high valuable choice.

    "Bucaneros" in Nindiri: Good Food in a Beautiful Setting

    The Terrace of Restaurant Bucaneros in Nindiri

    If you are in Masaya area, Restaurant Bucaneros, in Nindiri a small town few miles off Masaya, is a very valuable choice for a meal in a beautiful setting. The restaurant, an informal place yet top-end for the local standard, serves local plates as well as international salads and sandwiches. The setting is spectacular, on a terrace overlooking Laguna Masaya (See the photo attached). Any taxi driver in Masaya can take you there.

    El Club: Good and Reliable Choice for International Food

    The Pation and the Dining Area
    1 more image

    The restaurant at the Hotel and Nightclub "El Club" is a good and reliable option for lunch or an informal dinner. The menu, though not extensive, has a good variety of food from international and local cuisine, with food well prepared and served. At time of my stay, the house specialties were the Indonesian Chicken Satay and Italian lasagna as well as a choice of salads, sandwiches and seafood from the nearby Lake Nicaragua. The dining area, in the lovely inner patio, is a plus and sets up for a relaxing and enjoyable dining experience. At night the restaurant, as well as the whole property, turns into a nightclub; if you like the idea you can switch from your dining table to the bar to the dancing floor without changing place.

    El Zaguan: For a Hangout of Friends Hungry for Meat

    by gdilieto Updated Oct 7, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Located right behind the Cathedral, El Zaguan is the traditional upper-scale restaurant of Granada, specialized in grilled meats and steaks. Indeed the menu of meats is extensive and the food of good quality but, for my taste, this restaurants lacks atmosphere with a quite impersonal lounge and a noisy crowd excited by the Mariachi singers, who hang around the tables playing and asking for few songs a price comparable to the price of the whole meal. In my view a good choice for a hangout of friends hungry for meat, a not-too-good option for a romantic or fine dinner.

    Art on walls at Kathy's

    Mmmm, this is a great place for breakfast or brunch (gets packed on weekends!). Stay inside and enjoy the art or sit outside in the shade of bamboo curtains and watch the streets and the San Francisco Convent.

    Favorite Dish: Try the chocolate pancakes, strawberry waffles or the huevos rancheros with the BEST gallo pinto I have ever had.

    KATHY'S WAFFLE HOUSE: AMERICAN FEELING IN GRANADA

    by Sininen Written Nov 20, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I had breakfast three times at Kathy's Waffle House during my stay in Granada. Not because I'd have thought their breakfast would have been so much better than elsewhere in the city but because the service was so excellent. In fact if the service wouldn't have been so good I would have left on the last morning because of the level of the discussion between the owner (American expat) and some American guests. The way they talked about women, especially local ones, was disgusting.

    What drew me there too was that I could sit outdoors in the patio under the fans.

    Favorite Dish: I had what is my favourite breakfast in hot countries everywhere - fruit salad - twice and once Belgian waffles, which seemed to be very popular. I just love cold fruit salad in hot climate. Some natural yoghurt, lots of exotic fresh fruit and a little bit of muesli on the top. What could beat that? The first time I tried it was in South American and ever since I've loved it. I've made it at home but it just doesn't taste the same, so I think it is the climate which makes the trick! Wafflers were ok but far too heavy to have first thing in the morning I think. With breakfast you get coffee free and it was excellent too. I also had to have a smoothie - in water - or the breakfast wouldn't have been perfect.

    Restaurante Don Daffa: Great Food Cheap

    by pastorkurt Updated Sep 8, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    i have eaten at this restaurant about 10 times. It is just to the right of central park if you are facing the cathedral. It is cafeteria style in service, but the quality is great. So each day the food is different. Choose from Chicken, fish, or beef dishes grab some rice and beans, a small salad and a soda all for 3 US dollars. Next find a table and enjoy the breeze take in the sights and sounds of the central park.

    Favorite Dish: I honestly loved every single item at this restaurant, however the fried fish was amazing.
