“Wonderful breakfast, lunch, and dinner!”
Reviewed May 25, 2013

Everything here is amazing. You can't go wrong on their menu- it is all authentic, regional, delicious. Would recommend for any meal of the day. No doubt we could have eaten here everyday and not been disappointed. Friendly staff, reasonable prices, nice music in the evening. A MUST if you are staying on the northern end of town and definitely worth your trip if you aren't!!!

“Very Pleasant Atmosphere”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

Located on the North end of town just steps from the beach on 38th. Very peaceful and romantic. Live music that was very relaxing. Food that was great. I had read from Trip Adviser of others that enjoyed the grouper. I can only say it met my expectations. Mango margaritas complimented well. My wife had shrimp in a mango sauce. She still raves about them. No problem coming back on or next visit.

“Don't miss Origenes!”
Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

We just returned from Origenes and had a great evening. First of all, the music was fabulous - an acoustic brother and sister duo who play there on the weekend were terrific. Their song selection is great and their voices beautiful. Try to see them. The food was interesting and delicious - we started with calamari and then my husband had tuna ceviche and a seafood soup that was heated with rocks and presented at the table and the rocks removed. I had mango shrimp that was served with a balsamic reduction and had a slow kick. I wanted to lick the sauce from my plate! For dessert we ordered the chocolate soup- it was a cold chocolate liquid over granola, blackberries and ice cream. It had cloves and cinnamon in it- it was so wonderful and different. The service was attentive and the restaurant beautiful. Don't miss Origenes!

“Origenes is absolutely the best.”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

We were is PdC and Origenes hosted our wedding rehearsal dinner for 80+ people. I cannot be more complimentary of the staff, the chef, and the manager. We came on an evening a few days early to do a menu tasting and make our selections. When we arrived for the event the tables were set, the bar was open, and the outside ambiance was fantastic. Nothing but rave reviews were received from all the people who attended the 7PM -11PM night event. Live, music, open bar, excellent ambiance on the patio, and then the outstanding food that was served to the tables family style. We will make Origenes our first stop for dinner the next time we come to PdC. Do not heasitate to use Origenes f you are planning an event or large dinner - this is the place to go. It was absolutely outstanding.
