“Wonderful healthy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

Had a simple mediterranean-style dish (pasta with olives, tomatoes, capers) which came with some crudites and pickled veggies, and went back for the vegan chocolate-mint gelato (i'll note that I am not a vegetarian/vegan, just love good food whether it contains meat or not). There was live music the night we ate there, and Garfield the resident feline kept us company. The staff was really friendly too.

“Great music.. Horrible service!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

We were with 2 other coupls on our trip and decited to have dinner here.

The food and music was good(music was all American bands),but the service was horrible! we were not greeted kindly and it was a hassle for them to seat a group of 6 ( this was before the night rush) we warned the waiter we wanted to be on seperate checks for each.couple. Well at the end when it was time to pay he freaked out on us because he had to calculate it all over..but he should of done it right in beggining. well he couldnt handle it and took a break and made his Co worker finish out transaction.
I was kinda disapointed overall because it felt like we were in the US ,the food didnt seem authentic ,the workers all seemed like tourist them selfs and Costa Ricans are much nicer and treat there customers with manners.

The building is very pretty and cozy feeling!

“Cute, hippy place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2012

The food at Organico is good and reasonably priced. The service is also good. Sometimes they have entertainment and you can hang out there as long as you want. It's a very relaxing and enjoyable dinner.
