Lots of people at our resort told us to try it. The drinks were great I do have to say a bit over priced for Montezuma about 15$ each. But I walked buy the kitchen when on my way to the bathroom and say the chips were just store bought nacho chips. Also the food was way over priced and... More

The name Organico draws you in and certainly the food was good but I thought it expensive for what we got. I tried the restaurant next to it the next day and got more for less and I thought the food was better.

In a hot day we parked the car near Organico and stopped for a drink before lunch. The quality of fresh mango smoothy impressed me big times and we stayed for lunch. Offer was not wide but very nice options of fish, meat, past and some local food. I had blue marlin freshly cooked and salad per my request (outside... More

The food and drinks were amazing! We ordered appetizers and fresh seafood and enjoyed every bite. This is a great little place with healthy, filling menu selections, lovely decor and great service. We will definitely return!

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
