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.

“Best Vegetarian Lasagna”
Reviewed May 12, 2014

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.

“Is it supposed to be cool to have really bad service???”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

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 service we learned that they don't sell beer so we order a couple of really expensive smoothies with a shot of vodka in them. Ended up being close to $25 for two drinks. And we had to wait another 20 minutes for the cheque.

We get the whole organic vibe but for those who don't enjoy wine perhaps they could add some craft beers to the menu? Or maybe I don't get the whole organic thing and that's why I was so anhoyed at the ultra slow service.

The whole experience was a pain in the butt...lol

“Not up to the hype”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

My wife and I went to Organico this afternoon, and we left severely disappointed. I understand the place has recently changed hands, and I guess it needs some time to work things out.

The milkshakes were $7, yes $7. And they were not good, I ordered a cup of coffee milkshake, which promised espresso, cacao, cashew and carob, which sounds amazing, and the taste itself wasn't bad, but it wasn't thick, or even cold. The temperature outside was well over 30 degrees Celsius, and my shake was warm.

My wife ordered a Strawberry Letter, and it was dreadful. The cafe claims they make their shakes with home made gelato, which sounds amazing, however, it wasn't. My wife used to make gleato and I know what the real stuff tastes like.

To their credit, the lasanga did look decent, but things were very overpriced, and as one reviewer mentioned previously, I don't mind paying for an expensive meal, but it had better be worth it.

We ordered a guacamole starter, it was maybe two tablespoons of guac with store bought chips, very bland with no garlic, lemon or even salt.

The service was decent, food mediocre at best, and prices were way off the charts. Thankfully we had enough time to go somewhere else.

“Loved the food and music!”

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