“Vegetables undercooked and chicken bland”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

Really didnt like the food. Was disappointed. The service though was good. Wish I knew, however, that Costa Rica restaurant tips are included in the meal.

“Delivered to our hotel and still tasted great”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We opted to eat in one night with food delivered from Morphos. The casados were very tasty even after the food had cooled a bit in transit. So can't comment on the in-restaurant experience, but the food was quite tasty

We loved our lunch at Morpho's! The chicken sandwich was delicious with fresh avocado slices. Yummm. We had tasty shakes too. Wonderful service as well.

“Great food, unique exterior”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

It was suggested that we eat at Morpho's and I'm glad we did! It's not only attractive from the outside but the food is great too! We sat outside and enjoyed the butterflies and nice weather. I had casados with fish and my friend had fish with garlic. We enjoyed our lunch very much. I would definitely eat here again!

“Great food in Santa Elena”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Our daughter was staying in Monteverde at the Biologic station which is where study abroad students from UC's go to study all things rain forest. She told us about this place in Santa Elena. It is a very nice place and nicer on the inside. When we were there there were only one or two other tables. I ordered the chicken with mushroom sauce and It was the best I've ever had anywhere. If we ever find ourselves back in Santa Elena we would go back there for sure.
