We were able to walk here from our hotel (Arco Iris) and enjoyed our dinner very much! You can tell they take time to use all fresh ingredients and we discovered that our kids love carpaccio, which was delicious!

Fresh, delicious food and great service. I was sad that I found this on my last day in Monteverde, otherwise I would have eaten there again.

I have celiac, and they had tons of gluten free food, including pasta, steak, fish, chicken, and even dessert. Great staff and food over all. Not too expensive, and lots of options for everyone.

This is one of the best restaurants we have eaten at in Costa Rica. Everything we had was delicious, including the green salad, sea bass, and steak. Everything was fresh and flavorful and the staff was very friendly.

It's on the 2nd floor, so sitting on the patio was pretty nice. Servers were friendly. Spicy shrimp pasta was good. They have good local craft beers, too.

Own-Production. Fresh. Organic. Healthy. Local ingredients. Fusion & International Cuisines. The Green started in 2014 with a simple idea of offering excellent food with natural ingredients, together with a friendly environment where the "pura vida" that characterizes the Costa Rican and a service to remember highlights a restaurant where all people are treated with respect and friendly way the Ticos have. Our main motivation is the enjoyment of our guests, we are a restaurant that unites different elements and quality ingredients to create dishes that delight the palate. As far as possible we try to use ingredients grown in our garden or from local producers, thereby contributing to the economic growth of our people. Come and join us for great food and an atmosphere like no other.
