Nicaragua - People and places: The Factory

The Factory


Ok.  You're in Managua and somebody invites you to The Factory.  Cheesecake Factory in Managua?  No.  It's The Factory, steak and seafood restaurant in the Inter Continental Hotel in the heart of Managua.  So, is it worth it?  Check out the pictures:

 
 
 
 
 
 

The restaurant decor is top notch.   Everything was well planned and nicely decorated in this restaurant.  You can sit inside or outside in the hotel courtyard, close to the pool.  Service is excellent as well: friendly waiters, very attentive to the customers, without going over the top.

I had the imported 16 oz. NY Strip steak with a black pepper sauce (which I soon replaced with the Nicaraguan favorite - chimichurri) with cross cut fries.  My wife chose the jumbo shrimp in butter and garlic sauce with a medley of grilled vegetables.  Presentation and quality were excellent.  The sauces left a little to be desired, in my humble opinion.  As far as the steak goes, 3/4 done seems to be getting rarer and rarer lately although the cut was an inch think so that is to be expected. I only ate half of it...and the waiter gave me a load of that fresh bread...to make a really tasty sandwich later!

The Factory is not cheap.  It is one of the nicer restaurants in Managua, Nicaragua at the moment.  Service was great and the food was good.  Great ambiance.

On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it an 8.5.
