This restaurant offers a variety of meals--ranging from fish to local casadas. The staff is attentive. The food is tasty and nicely presented. The prices are right.

Morph's Restaurant near Monte Verde cooked up one of the best meals we ate during our 11 day tour of Costa Rica. The atmosphere is fresh and original, and the food is wonderful. Our large group sampled many different items from their large menu. A lot of food was passed around for sharing. This one received two thumbs up from... More

We heard Morphos is full in the evening so we decided to go there for lunch. It was recomended to us. We ordered the Chef's daily recommendation meal - wow! We got a 200g steak with coffee sauce!!! Amazing!!! One of the best steaks I've ever eaten! Very friendly staff, good prices for this quality!

We sat upstairs, in a corner, where we could enjoy a conversation as we enjoyed our meal. The food was excellent, and the dessert, a flan, was outstanding. The restaurant is beautifully painted and decorated, too.

We loved the decor, the service, and the food! Passion fruit chicken (me) and whatever beef dish my husband had - sublime! The house wine was good as well.

Highly recommended and it was full for dinner. We ordered the pork loin special. Both our servings had to be the worst cut of pork we ever had. Stringy, tough and overlooked. Served with rice that was dry as dust. The steamed vegetables were good. Dessert was better the tre leche cake was okay, but is was not soaked in... More

We went here for an early dinner without a reservation and they were about to find us a table - although it did get busy later, so I'd recommend booking. We had fish and it was delicious :-) the staff were really friendly and I'd definitely go back.

I had contacted this restaurant before leaving the US to ask about some dietary requests and was basically blown off. I guess they do enough business without special situations. We figured we'd give it a try anyhow since there were good TA reviews. We had to wait for a table for a while (no reservations accepted). We were finally seated... More
