Fresh, healthy and delicious. We couldn't get enough of this place and came back everyday when we were in Granada. The food and service was just so good every time. The tandoori chicken sandwich, the pulled pork sandwich and the chipotle beef tortilla were stand outs. I also enjoyed the first salad for months here which was on the specials board (changed weekly). Can't rate this place enough, if it was open past 6.30 we would have come for dinner every night too. Definitely make sure you come here.

El Garaje (The Garage) is a private home on the Calle Corrales in which the owners turned the old interior parking area into a small restaurant. Open between 11:30 am and 6:30 p.m. Mon.-Fri., the place is a must visit. Simply the best food in Granada. The specials are changed weekly, and cosy between $6 and $8 American. It fusion cuisine, with Spanish, French and Asian influences, as well as American.
The regular menu includes BBQ Tandori and pulled pork sliders. as well as chicken and chorizo quesdillas or burritos. The salad that comes with each entry is the freshest you can eat without picking it yourself. Limited selection of good wine and beer.
The sour orange cake, a specialty, is the best I've ever tasted. The Canadian couple who run it pride themselves on using the very freshest ingredients. Just superb. You'd pay three or four times the tab for the same faire in Chicago. I ate there probably 15 or 18 times over five weeks.

If it wasn't for the owners here we would have had no idea where to go in Granada. Not only was the food great (I had the pulled pork and my wife had the italian sausage), the owners were amazingly helpful. After a brief conversation one of the owners (we found out they moved down from toronto 7 years ago) showed us San Juan De Oriente and Catarina on a map and let us know those were the best places for local crafts and an amazing view of Laguna de Apoyo, respectively. They also recommended great restaurants for dinner, one being El Zaguan that we went to and had a great dinner.

El Garaje is like your home away from home. Very inviting and extremely easy going and relaxed. We definitely recommend it for lunch on a relaxing day.

This is the only restaurant we went to twice while in Granada. We went back because the food was delicious and Mike went out of his way to prepare our dinners so that they were exactly what we wanted. Fresh, perfectly prepared food, including the best salads in Granada.

I had a nice sandwich here, fresh everything, including beautiful lettuce…definitely not the # 1 place for food. It was good, not GREAT or memorable. The atmosphere was sort of depressing, nothing exciting.
