I went one night when I saw they had music playing. I got a gelato shake and it was ok. The guacamole was great. I think the service could have been improved but it was very busy because of the musical guests, so I cannot judge my experience with any other night of the week.

Organico has the best vegetarian lasagna I have ever had! So so so good. I visited on a night with live reggae music and the atmosphere of the cafe was so calming, funky, and beautiful. My experience showed service being slow in the evenings... but somehow the food and scene made up for that.

We had heard good things about this restaurant, particularly the live music and we were looking forward to a night out. Unfortunately we missed open mic night and there was nothing else going on the night we were there or all week for that matter. Thought that was odd for high season. In any event when we finally did get... More

We really enjoyed the reggae music and shared the seafood/meat dish for two. Good wine and great service! Best guacamole ever!

The food is average and a bit overpriced, the service is bad but the atmosphere is great. They have lots of live music from some really talented local artist. Monday night's open mic night is a ton of fun.

I really enjoyed Organico! Coming to Costa Rica, I wasn't sure how well the food options would accommodate my vegan diet, but Montezuma was more than prepared for me! At Organico, I really enjoyed the rice and mixed vegetable dish while listening to a live band perform. The place was packed the night I visited and they only had one... More

Service, food and atmosphere amazing. I ate the veggie lasagna - delicious. Homemade lemonade was very refreshing. Reasonably priced. The waitress was friendly, warm and attentive. Would definitely love to return!

Just had a smoothie here and thought that for 3,000 Colones (about $7) it would be amazing - it was just average. Comparable to some of the 1,500 colone smoothies I was finding but I guess i was paying for the "organic" label. The Book exchange is cool though - definitely caters to travellers and creates a nice vibe.

I was very disappointed. I got the shrimps. They had no taste and the veg and rice were cold. All this for a exaggerated price.

We had breakfast at this place. The food was ok but it took a while before it was served. Besides that, we felt treated badly. the breakfast option was with coffee so the sign said. We ordered tea in stead of coffee and without even a warning two expensive teas were added to the bill. They even became irrated when... More
