San Juan del Sur Restaurant Recs…

One of my greatest concerns in moving here was that I would miss all of the great restaurants back home. I have to say that I have been pleasantly surprised! Not only are there are a number of great places to eat in San Juan, but we’ve come to know the owners, chefs, and wait-staff, as well and we are always greeted with a warm smile and cold drink. If you’re planning a move here or even just a vacation, I highly recommend visiting some of these local spots:


El Pozo

Bistro style menu including seafood and steak with Sushi Sundays – Plus they have the best high-end burger in town, topped with killer onion rings!




Bambu Beach Club

Nicaraguan food with an Asian flair – Daily specials, great drinks, and regular events, including movie nights.


Mauricio’s Pizzeria

No better place in town to get a pizza, play a little chess, and, if you’re lucky, sample some tiramisu.

Mexican Rinconcito

Family-style restaurant offering my personal favorite, Chilaquiles, as well as tacos, fajitas, and the popular “tacos familiar” – a large taco dish that serves up to 6 people and includes 3 different types of meat and melted cheese!

El Colibri

Mediterranean influenced food served in a garden setting. Try the chicken supreme – it’s my absolute favorite!
