After 5 hours of ziplining and cloud forest hiking we were very hungry. After seeing good reviews about The Green Restaurant decided to try it. It was a little difficult to find but we did. 2nd floor in a little shopping plaza. Very surprised to...discover the restaurant was very small with only 3 tables inside and 2 outside on a deck overlooking the parking lot. Due to Covid probably half capacity. My partner ordered pasta and I ordered an 8 ounce rib eye. The owner came over and apologized stating that he didn't have the 8 oz rib eye but he would substitute it with a 16 ounce rib eye. My friend and I each ordered a margarita on the rocks. Excellent. The food we received was prepared exactly as ordered and was truly mouthwatering and astonishing delicious. I have never had a better rib eye and the owner was well educated about the source of the beef. It was one of the best meals I have had in Costa Rica and I have residency. 4 margaritas, great pasta and fantastic rib eye and the bill was a little less that $40. Highly recommend "The Green Restaurant".More

High quality ingredients and a great chef made this moderately priced cafe the perfect stop. Pasta, sandwich and perfectly cooked chicken breast was delicious. To find the restaurant, go to the second floor of the commercial center. The stairs are inside the center. You can...look for Sabor Tico next door. Their sign is bigger.More

We had sea bass with a side of small potatoes and salad. Everything was fresh and perfectly cooked. It was an excellent meal.

Local restaurant with great steaks and pasta dishes. Had some Costa Rica craft beers, nice change from the standard Imperial. The carbonara and Aglio green pasta dishes were the best. Excellent service, recommend reservation as they are still on reduced capacity.

Went here 3 times in my 2 Days in Monteverde because of the amazing food and friendly staff. The tuna steak and its sauce was fantastic, in my opinion better than any seafood i ate in my 7 weeks on rhe Caribbean and pacific side....The chicken with mushrooms in the creamy sauce was also delicious, and the fries were super good too. Usually i drench my fries in mayo and ketchup but here i didnt need any sauce. Super delicious, would greatly recommend.More

Delicious with a very good price! Best restaurant in Monteverde! And Gluten free! We went there 3 times and everything we ate was just amazing: Steak, Burger, Pasta, Tuna filet. They offer all dishes gluten free, expect for burgers and paninis. So there is plenty...of options for gluten intolerant people. Highly recommend this place :)More

This place was always packed while I was in town. Good spot for burgers and a view of the sunset. Friendly service. Good food but not as good as the Sabor next door.
