We had pasta and a papaya smoothie. The food was yummy. We added a little bit of spice to the pasta which made it very tasty. Yes, I definitely would visit again.

This is an unpretentious restaurant, but efficiently delivered good food at a reasonable price. The staff were particularly friendly and helpful, and seemed to genuinely enjoy their work!

Found this restaurant in the Centro Commercial just up the hill, on 2nd floor of the arcade. Much better than the fare on offer downtown. Cheaper too, very attentive staff. Had Tempura Mushrooms and an excellent burger - highly recommended

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.
