I crave a hamburger just a couple of times per year. Well I was lucky to indulge in The Green's burger twice this week, and probably will again at least a couple of times a month! Perfect mix of salt and meat, sauce and bread....More

Perhaps this place changed ownership? This was just bare-bones, unimaginative cooking: an overcooked steak, a bland pasta dish. There was nothing particularly green about it: not a lot of veggie options on the menu. BTW, there IS good food in Monteverde--if you want pasta, I...More

This is a fine restaurant. They offer well-cooked dishes. In addition, they usually have a special dish that is not included in the regular menu. They spend their time to give you mouthwatering experience.

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.
