Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The food is delicious and well made. The kids menu was also great. We had smoothies, coffees, to burgers and tuna bowls. We enjoyed it all. I specially loved the garden and shop area. My kids loved to walk around the sweet garden and explore...the fountain and hammock. I also bought some lovely items in their shopMore

Fun, eclectic and immersive dining with a great staff and large, healthy servings. Not only was the food outstanding, but there were opportunities to purchase products that went to support local causes within.

We too had dinner here our first night in Granada, and it was very pleasant. As the name suggests and described by others, it had a number of plants inside in a garden setting that created a serene setting. Our server was great, and we...all enjoyed our meals. Six of us (4 adults and two children) ate for about $100. We would definitely return.More

We had dinner there on our first night in Granada, and couldn't have asked for a nicer first dinner there! Our server Jesus was very professional, and very attentive with great recommendations! The place itself is absolutely beautiful, with an awesome courtyard to dine in....The atmosphere is very Nicaraguan, and perfect for couples. My wife absolutely loved her Chimichurri with vegetables. I loved the taco pescado with the salsa picante!! I'd definitely go back again!More

I had been outside of Granada and Nicaragua for all of COVID, two years, so I was pleasantly surprised to find the Garden Cafe still open, looking beautiful as ever, and featuring a new and creative menu. The shakshouka was lovely, my favorite breakfast, and...the poached eggs over veggies, quinoa and beans was equally delish and very generous. Damien and Xiomara continue to run a wonderful oasis with good eats and fast, friendly service.More

Fabulous breakfast Cafe in the heart of Granada. I had the power B breakfast and it was one of the best I've ever had in my travels. My friend had a delicious plate of waffles and the other friend had a wonderful omelette. The Wi-Fi...was 40/20 and the coffee was decent. We will be returning soon.More

We visited in July 2021 for lunch and were pleased to see that covid-19 measures are in place - all people entering for food service are requested to go directly to the well-equipped sink near the restrooms and wash their hands. All staff wear masks,...tables are distanced even the check is delivered in a small metal can. The food was as delicious as any other time we have visited. The ambience is comfortable and the products diverse. Would recommend for a meal or a coffee or to buy from the crafts and gifts many of which support local groups.More

We went there every single day of our 3-days-stay in Granada and never got disappointed. From breakfast to dinner, each meal we chose was delicious :-) Prices are a bit higher than at other places but it is really worth it. The atmosphere is just...great, staff is very friendly and attentive.More

I enjoyed breakfasts, lunches, and a dinner at this gorgeous restaurant. The menu had plenty of options for food as well as good smoothies and cocktails. It is no doubt the most stylish space in town in its principle rooms as well as densely planted...courtyard and verandah. I sat there for hours doing work and listening to the water splash in the fountain and birds chirping while they took their baths. The staff were quite nice as well. Service was great and food / drinks always arrived in a timely fashion. I can't wait to return.More

I am not aware of any rented rooms at the Garden Cafe. For long term stays I would suggest contacting either GPS or the Vista Mombacho Apartments in Granada.
