Very good!

I had chicken with stroganoff sauce. It was the special that day. Not very central american, but very good! I agree with another reviewer however, that the ice cream is a must have! I got chocolate chip and it was amazing!

We had dinner here after comparing a few menus. The prices are reasonable and you get a lot! We were stuffed. Must have ice cream though. Made in monteverde.

We went for dinner. It was very nice and a little romantic of a setting. Really enjoyed the food. You can go for families, meetings or just for two. We really enjoyed everything there. Good food and definitely should try and make it.

No complaints about our food or the service (which was surprisingly quick). The desserts in particular were great (peanut butter pie and tiramisu). The atmosphere and location are also good. But the main courses were pretty average for what we paid, compared to other places we have eaten (in Santa Elena and Costa Rica as a whole).

My friends and I had a lunch here while in Santa Elena. There is a wide variety of food and it's all pretty good. But what really stood out or me was the Morphos Coffee. It's their special and a must have. While on the pricier side as a coffee it's a real treat. This place does fall on the... More

We had lunch here. The food was extremely fresh with huge portions. I had the Arroz con Pollo and my boyfriend had the enormous hamburger. He said it was the best hamburger he'd ever had. We both had the fresh lemonade which was refreshing.
