We had an excellent lunch at el garage. We had BBQ tandori sandwich and bulgar wheat/chickpea/ salad. Service was good and price reasonable.

“Great food friendly service wonderful atmosphere”
Reviewed 26 September 2011

I have vacationed in Granada Nicaragua several times and I always stop by El Garaje to eat. The restaurant is in a nicely restored colonial home on a quiet block. The food is always fresh and delicious since owners, Paul and Heather, do all of the cooking. The homemade soups are great and it is the only place in Granada that I have found that serves a real salad containing a variety of greens and other vegetables. Prices are very reasonable and the service is friendly.

“finally, real food!”
Reviewed 11 September 2011

finally, a restaurant with real food. nothing comes out of a can or jar. i was really impressed. even the barbeque sauce is made from scratch. it's also probably the only place in town to get a real salad. nicaraguans are not known for eating greens. they also have specials so if you're a frequent customer you won't get bored with the menu. the other nice thing is that the door is closed and they don't get thieves or glue sniffers. i read the other review where the guy said that it was closed and i don't believe he actually got out of his car. if you look in the door they will open it for you. if you're looking for a tourist experience go down la calzada. if you want to eat great food in an environment that you won't be bugged by people selling whistles and hammocks, this is the place for you.

“Went numerous during during advertised open hours, but it was closed”
Reviewed 7 September 2011

Becasue of the good reviews we tried numerous times to go there. Unfortunately, every time there was a sign out in front that said open, but the doors were locked and no one appeared to be around. I am perplexed as to what was going on.

Sorry for not being able to enter the restaurant. Gates are closed for personal and customer safety as many thefts occur in Nicaragua.
A doorbell is located just left of the gate or a ‘buenas’ through the gate will get our attention since we are never more then 20ft away.

“Clean and good food”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

Not your typical place to eat here, but clean as you can get, welcoming and a good variety. A really pleasant atmosphere...not elegant, but nice. Not NICA food, but some latin type dishes as well as other food. If you need a break and someone who speaks English, this is the place.
