Large group at Morpho's

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.

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.

The staff here did not seem used to serving wine, but once we got past that glitch the food was delicious and service attentive to our large group.

We had two meals here on two different days and they were all great. Service was excellent and great friendly ambience. I would very much recommend this place. By the way - everyone speaks good English.

Morphos' sea bass in avocado sauce will be a special memory forever! (Sort of like the sopa de lima in... More

Being from the USA I eat a LOT of burgers. I challenge anyone anywhere to make one better than Morphos. It was that DAMN good.

This dish at this restaurant was the best single dish we ate in our 10-day trip to Costa Rica. Similar dishes at other restaurants were good (B+/A-). Here it was spectacular (A++). We will dream about it for months.
