Great steak, cool atmosphere, decent prices

The steak was divine. We had two tenderloins with an appetizer, desserts, and drinks for under $100. Can't beat that! Friendly staff and a gypsy cavern-like atmosphere. Great evening out!

Great location, good for large groups, adequate service. Menu selections are good as is the wine list. Our waiter struggled with English, but did OK. Notwithstanding its reputation, our experience was not great compared to other fine meals we had in the area. Overpriced compared to other restaurants in the area.

Morpho's came recommended by a trusted local. Nice atmosphere and food is above average, servers were engaging and fun until... a pretty girl came in to sit at the front desk. We waited over half an hour for a check as the servers lingered near the desk. The place was full and when people came in to be seated is... More

Food was good. Had the dish of the day which included a glass of wine. I should of asked for the price because I was shocked to pay 8000 colones for a chicken bourguignon. But that was my fault. The place was quiet in April. It's an interesting place when you get tired of local food and something like back... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Morpho's. The decor was interesting, the food was tasty and not overpriced, the wait staff were attentive. IT was a bit loud. One of the waiters drank a shot along with my father which was especially fun.

We ordered the tilapia with pineapple salsa and it was incredible. It was delivered to Hidden Canopy for us as we didn't feel like making the trek out again once we had arrived after a long day of traveling. My husband ordered the chicken casado and also really enjoyed it.

I ordered takeout rice and veggies (I'm a veggie) it was ok, I would say average. I also ordered a vegetarian soup. They managed to get the order wrong and delivered a chicken soup. I would probably not eat here again.

They served a large group of us from a tour in good time. I thought it was a bit pricey, but it had a varified menu.
