Great find, we hired scooters to explore Ometepe and came across this place. We each had a fruit smoothie, which was lovely and refreshing.It is located right by the water with a view of the San Jose ferry and there is parking for bikes.

Great hostel! Maria is a lovely host - always making sure we had everything we needed, sometimes giving us extra fruit. The place is clean with one brand new dorm. Restaurant is cheap with good food, and all staff are friendly and helpful. Good wifi. Also rents bikes and scooters.

We went there as we wanted to support the locals, everything is made from scratch and they have a huge selection on their menu. The prices are super cheap, the food is typical Nicaraguan.

My husband and I were looking for somewhere to eat and have a drink. I looked online and saw this place had great reviews. We ordered chicken nachos and tacos. The food was horrible. All the chicken tasted freezer burned and had no seasoning. The tortillas were tough and rubbery. I can’t believe the high reviews the other people gave. Maybe it was just the luck of the draw for us.

Just at the entrance of the village of Altagracia, you will find this small bar/ restaurant. The owner Pacino welcome you with a big smile. The food is great. Don’t miss the ceviche as an appetiser. The price are moderate for this Island. The music is also good.

Restaurante Caballito's Mar

Our services are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Our rancho style restaurant and bar area is just in front of the lake, on the shade of tropical trees. Fried fresh fish, meat, chicken, pasta, pork; as well as salads, sandwich, and starter dishes. Fo

Caballitis Mar is located right on the lake nicaragua in the town of Merida which is slightly southwest on the island. It has the best views of sunset I have ever seen and I have been in safaris in Africa. The owner Fernando is truly relaxed and hospitable and all of the staff are simply amazing. After a day kayaking (this is the best place to go kayaking on the island) try having a sundowner at Caballitos Mar - brilliant!!!There are only about 5 rooms here and 2 private rooms with bathroom - so you must book well in advance. I went for 4 days and stayed 10. This is a really simple place for those looking to live close to nature - it is not luxury - there is the sound of the birds and lizards and other wild life. The best secret of all is the restaurant! Fresh fish caught daily is served here and the chef makes her own pasta!!!

I rented 2 scooters with a couple friends over the weekend. They were delivered the next day, on time to where we were staying. We spent the day riding around the island. Such a great way to see and explore Ometepe.This was a no hassle experience. I highly recommend Comedor Mi Ranchito.

Reviewed By modernmixtravel

We probably ordered the wrong things at this Argentinean restaurant, but we had a homemade ravioli bolognese and hamburger. The ravioli sauce was fine but the paste was soggy and overdone, reminded me of boiled dumplings or perogis. And the hamburger - the house made bread bun was too thick and the stuff inside was kind of dry. If this was half the price we payed, it’d be like - ok fine whatever, but because this was most expensive meal we’ve had on Ometepe we had higher expectations for the price. Perhaps the quality of ingredients used are of high quality in the dishes we ordered, but the cooking style did not reflect that.
