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.
