This place is off the beaten path a few blocks from the tourist st. You better find it. yes, ring the doorbell because the gate will be closed. then walk into this delightfull little place that a couple run. Food is very value priced and menue is just big enough. i got the pulled pork cuban and the wife chipote bean and corn burrito. size is good and flavors are excellent! i would eat here every other day if i lived here. By far my favorite place to eat in granada.

El Garaje is off the beaten path, away from the hustle of Calzada street. Tucked into a garage in a nice, quiet neighborhood, their food is consistently delicious and very reasonably priced. They always have some specials available on their chalkboard menu as well. The service is personable and attentive. The quiet location and fantastic food make El Garaje a great choice for lunch.

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, 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.
