We had lunch here one day and were the only ones in the restaurant, but we didn't know why the place wasn't packed! Great dishes, including the chicken! We received a round of free beer because we were staying at the Rainbow Valley Lodge. The server was very nice and attentive and made some great suggestions! Try it out, please!

After a long morning in the reserve, I went to Morphos for lunch. The staff was very friendly and attentive and the food was great - I had the Maracuja Chicken and tres leche. Besides the service and food, the place is very nicely decorated! A must see.

We recently visited Costa Rica and made a trip through the country by car. We didn't have the best experience foodwise and that all changed when we got to Monteverde. The host at the hotel where we were staying advised us to eat at Morphos. The black pepper tenderloin was amazing!! I received about 400 grams of delicious tender meat... More

My beau had an excellent steak at Morpho's. I had spaghetti which I didn't like. There was some kind of pepper in the sauce that gave it an offputting flavor. Next time, I would go steak. We were tired, hot and ready for a great meal. It took forever and then the credit card machine was down so leaving was... More

Lovely restaurant, food was delicious with a good variety available. Staff were friendly and the restaurant had a great atmosphere and the prices good. Would definitely recommend. The restaurant is down one of the side rides along from the bank, slightly hidden but worth finding!

Very packed. Right off the main street. Extremely fast service. Selection of typical food, burgers, daily special, etc. Large portions! Less than $20/head with tip.

We felt very lucky to walk into this place. Very comfortable and the owner happened to be there when I asked about who did all the design and painting. The gentleman who did the painting came in and was handicapped in a wheelchair. What an artist!!!! So talented! The food was solo good and they had some nice wines. I... More

We stopped here for a little bite. I wish we had come here for dinner! The place is spectacular for the interior and exterior design. The wall murals mimic the outdoor environment along with the big butterfly sculptures hanging from the ceiling. There was even a beautiful butterfly table made from the wood of a tree trunk slice. The fruit... More
