“Best food in San Pancho”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Seven of us dined last night. Service very good for a rather large group with only one waiter. Salads were varied and delicious. Pastas deemed excellent and my dorado with root veg's delicious. Creative mixed drink menu too. Prices a bit high but worth it.

“Great food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2013 via mobile

Yes the common area is the restaurant, we didn't stay there though. Didn't bother my wife and I one bit when the occupants came through to play an afternoon game of scrabble right next to us. Part of the charm of San Pancho. The food was so good, we were thrilled. Fig, blue cheese almond was unlike anything you'll find in the larger resort towns. Staff were very accommodating. Love this place, love this town. Much cleaner and more quaint than restaurants in nearby Sayulita.

“Culinary artists at work”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

Located in the Cielo Rojo Hotel, Bistro Organico is an extraordinary restaurant. The locale is a side street in a town of side streets. It's easy to get to and easy to park. Most importantly, the Bistro is a culinary happening.

The salads come to the table as works of art. Imagine a hibiscus-infused dressing with sesame seeds lightly surrounding the freshest produce you're likely to find in Mexico. The main courses are primarily seafood (no meat is served at Bistro Organico). During one of our several visits, we enjoyed a Dorado with pepitas and a side of plantains and panera. Another time, we had Poblano chili stuffed with marlin and a side of mushrooms and asparagus. The wine we chose was Chilean (Urban Uco Malbec).

On our final visit, we were treated to an impromptu tequila tasting lesson that we will never forget.

The service is consistently excellent, personable and efficient. The prices are quite modest for the quality of food being offered.

I already miss Bistro Organico and it's been only 4 days!

“Cafe Organico - the restaurant at Hotel Ceilo Rojo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

My husband and I spent two weeks in San Pancho and found ourselves going back to Cafe Organico again and again - for brunch and dinner. There are many excellent food choices at San Pancho but none compare to the creativity, flavors and presentation of Juan Diego's menu. The food is delicious and healthy. Even if you don't care about "healthy" - please go to this restaurant. Your taste buds will explode with happiness!!
The atmosphere is relaxing and comforting. Juan Diego is the chef and his father, Juan is often there in the evening to make sure you are well taken care of. If you are lucky, you will get Adolpho to wait on you.... he is wonderful. He will take very good care of you. Please tell him Rick and Bobbie say hi!!
There is also a very good wine list..... and their margaritas are fantastic!

“A Special Occaision at Bistro Organico”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2012

My husband and I were recently married in the town of San Pancho. We have been visiting the town for years and when we are there we frequently visit Cielo Rojo's Bistro Organico. We love the friendly staff, the amazing food and the beuatiful coutryard setting. While in town for our wedding, we had our rehearsal dinner at Bistro Organico with 20 of our closest friends and family. Juan Diego developed a set menu with lovely options for our guests. Our guests raved about the food: the presentation, the quality and how delicious everything was! The wines recommended to us were lovely and complimented our meals. The ambience is truly romantic with the courtyard lit up beautifully. It was a night to remember!
