Restaurants in Nicaragua

The property has low-rent oceanfront rooms for strapped travelers. Walk the 20 paces to the end of the pier, over the dazzling blue-green shallows and into the rustic, colonnaded one-room restaurant.

You can have a terrific lunch on the porch. The restaurant is run by the Espinosa sisters, Alicia and Irene, and named after their mother, who was still making the pork and chicken nacatamales into her nineties.

This dark, candlelit restaurant, despite the name (The Third Eye), wears its bohemianism lightly.
