Restaurant details
Reviewed 22 July 2017

We were amazed at the food we had at the El Garaje de Brosed, yes it's a garage actually it's under a tent and you go through the garage to get to it. Staying at the Best Western Irazu outside of San Jose I went on Google maps to see what was around to eat that we could walk to. I found it just 3 blocks away and checked it out on Tripadvisor and it had great reviews. The place has character but certainly not a top end establishment but we went for the food and it was fantastic. We both ordered the seafood soup, it was the best and it was very excellent.
It's a house and has no sign out front, we weren't sure it was the right place so we asked two guys from the neighborhood and they never heard of it. So we walked over to a guard shack on the corner and they verified that it was a restaurant and that it was muy bien. Who would of guessed. It does not sell booze The meal for both of us was $22.00

My wife and I met our friends for lunch here. The menu is limited, but the food is good, very cheap, and everything included even your fruit drink. They open at 11:30, and there is no sign - they just open the red garage doors and you walk into the backyard garden.

This is a family-run restaurant located in the garage of a local house in a small neighborhood. The food is excellent and it has very reasonable prices. We had their lunch special, which included a nice steak and large food portions for less than $10 per person!

Also, their location is good, as it is fairly close to the Sabana and La Uruca area. The restaurant is very popular amongst locals and I highly recommend it if you want to have an authentic home-style experience.

Good quality meat and dishes. Also must try the filled churros! Great ambience, is literally a garage of a house made a restaurant.
