We went to El Garaje once and LOVED the food so we went back many more times. The steak sandwich was amazing and our daughters loved the food too. The owners are so nice and you should know before you go there to ring the bell outside if the gates are closed, it is a safety precaution, and also there... More

Being Canadian I was curious about this place. Hard to find but best to go straight down Corrales. It is about 3 blocks from the Hotel San Francisco but on the other side of the street. Menu has a few options but very high quality. It is more of a gringo restaurant. Usually prefer Nica ones but was blown away... More

Unassuming restaurant with superb food. Run by Canadian couple, the number of selections is relatively small, but they are diverse, including vegetarian options, and more than sufficient. The service was friendly and efficient. Ultimately, it is all about the food though, and that was absolutely delicious.

A great menu with a variety of healthy & delicious (and quite creative) options. My partner and I had a sandwich each and we weren't disappointed! I only wish we had've had time to return and sample other dishes. The friendly owners provide great service. Highly recommend!

Although a little hard to find, friendly restaurant has a variety of soups, salads, sandwiches and specials, some vegetarian, some chicken, some pork, some beef. Limited hours and days of operation so check to be sure it's open. Definitely worth the effort to find this place.

The food here is the best quality I've had here in Granada. The restaurant is located in the front portion of their house; it's clean, bright, and welcoming. The menu always has old favorites and new things to try; it's not 'Nicaraguan' food but it is worth seeking out!

Two expat Canadians cook it up in Granada on Calle Corral a block over from Casa Lucia Hotel. My buddy jumped on the split pea soup first evening and had to return for some more the next day for lunch. Salads, sandwiches and plates are all fresh, flavorful, and tasty. I've had many Key Lime Pies and El Garaje's is... More

Heather and Paul, the owners, are welcoming, the service is personal. The food is fresh and well balanced in taste. We had delicious quesdaillas, one filled with pork, tomatillos and jalapeño, the other with a slow cooked beef with chipotles. Both came with a lovely green salad. The small menu is displayed on blackboards. Just know that the hours are... More

I visited El Garaje twice in October and there I had the best meals of my over three months in Nicaragua. I had the italian sausage sandwich that came with a side salad. The salad was absolutely delicious and refreshing, like a high-end salad I would get a home, just the type that was nearly impossible to find in Nicaragua.... More

My girlfriend is an absolute foodie, so when she insisted that we have an early dinner at the #1 rated restaurant in Grenada I just bowed my head and thanked my lucky stars. The fact that you don't have to pay an arm and a leg is nice, but the true value comes from the ambiance created by 70s/80s music... More
