What lovely people our hosts at this little lunchtime restaurant are. The place was full the entire time we were there and our hosts were run off their feet. The food was worth waiting for though, and the time passed quickly in the front room of their lovely home. The menu is simple, mostly Mexican food, fresh and delicious.

The food here is just as wonderful as everyone has described, and affordable too. My husband and I each had a different type of quesadilla, and they were delicious, truly the best quesadilla I've ever had. We finished off the night with some lime cheesecake, which was also delicious. We are in Granada for a month and I have no doubt we will be returning here again.

The location is a little bit odd, several blocks away from any official restaurant. When we got there, the sign said open, but all the doors were locked and no one was around. We quickly learned that this is because, this is actually someone garage, and that the restaurant is functionally, in their house.

The food was by far the best displayed food I have seen in Nicaragua. It took slightly longer than other similar places, but that is because the are actually just making it in a house kitchen, and when we went, it was just two people, most likely the owners of the house.

The food itself ranks up there with the best food I have had in Nicaragua. The menu is not the most inventive, but the food tastes very fresh, and masterfully prepared. We ordered 2 rounds of beers, and both rounds were brought in pre-chilled glasses.

The atmosphere was good, not great. Everything was clean and orderly, but not ascetically special. The services was very good. The owner was attentive, but did not linger.

The Food was actually very affordable given what I would say was one of the more classy and professional dining experiences I had in Granada. Food ranged from between 100 and 150 cordobas, and beers were 23. Tax was additional.

El Garaje is a little bit out of the way, but it is definitely worth the effort to get there.

We were in Granada for a week and this was our favourite restaurant during our stay. Our only regret is that we ate our last meal here, so we couldn't be repeat customers.

Everything we had (homemade iced tea, salad, tandoori sandwich, and lime pie) was super tasty, and the restaurant has a very laid-back vibe.

Note that they keep their door/gate locked, so if there are no patrons inside, it may appear to be closed.

The space isn't romantic but who needs that when the food is so fantastic! Hours are Monday - Friday 11:30 - 6:30 PM, closed on weekends. It is located on Los Corrales just past Calle Martirio about 20 meters toward the lake (very close to the Pure Spa). Specials change often so one could go often and try different dishes. I know we'll be back often on this vacation.
