I love reading the negative reviews on this thing. El Garaje has like 4 of them out of several hundred and they are all so cynical and flat out ridiculous that you have to wonder what kind of life that reviewer is living.
Firstly, is is true that the TA locator and google maps have the restaurant in the wrong location. It is about 2 blocks closer to the lake on the same street (address is correct at 512 Calle Corral or Corrales). It is not difficult to find despite the wrong location. Google maps does this on occasion including in major cities like Boston. Anyone who "wasted" time trying to find it let alone gives a bad review based on this is a complete idiot. Learn how to be a traveller and ask someone for directions. The sign is large and not difficult to see.
Secondly, Granada is hot. A negative review based on the climate of the city is completely ignorant. The restaurant has plenty of fans and the air movement is good. My wife and I were there during the heat of the day and were completely comfortable. If you think negatively of an establishment based on the local climate, you probably shouldn't be travelling in the tropics.
Thirdly, the menu is quite extensive for a small restaurant. It is primarily a lunch spot and has several vegetarian and meat sandwiches and salads. There were three specials that all looked exceptional. If I had any complaint it would be that the menu is too good and it was difficult to choose. I ended up having a red snapper bahn mi, Vietnamese sandwich, that was perfectly spicey and complemented well with homemade pickled veggies and a light cole slaw. My wife had the tandoori chicken sandwich which was served on flat bread and also tasted exceptional. No menu issues here! Food is locally sourced and very fresh.
Service was good, not slow, and prices very reasonable. Overall this is a must go restaurant. Pay no heed to the ridiculously negative reviews. From my personal experience at this place, those reviewers were either having terrible days or are just outright cynical people, maybe both. Easy and well worth the short walk from the city center. We will god back for sure.
