Food was great and atmosphere is excellent. Service was accommodating. But prices are on the high side.

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

The dessert - caramel flan - still lingers in my memory. The inside can be a bit echoey as made mostly of cement, but the details are really fun. Our waiter (who is also the owner) was very kind and helpful.

“Great Ambiance”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Had dinner here with a large group. I had the papaya smoothie to get things started and it was great! For dinner, I ordered the Mango and Tamarind Pork Loin and it was great! I almost licked the plate clean because of the sauce. If you find yourself in the area, stop by and I doubt you'll be dissappointed.

“A bit pricey but a decent meal in a beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Ate here on our first night as it was one of few places open after our late arrival. While it does feel a bit touristy, the tables are stunning as are the paintings that cover the walls. The ambiance is nice with doors that were open to the breeze, candles flickering, there was even the biggest butterfly (real) flitting above our heads as we ate!

Both my and the hubbys Casados were delicious and filling, albeit slightly more expensive than smaller places in town.

In response to complaints about the wait staff, remember that servers in CR are much more curt than we are used to, don't take it personally. Also, don't forget your tip is almost always included on your bill. We usually gave 10% more if the service was excellent.

“Awesome steak dinner at Morpho's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

my family ate dinner here after a long day of zip lines. we sat upstairs, with doors open and saw a beautiful, full rainbow. The thick wooden tables are shaped like butterflies (costa rican morpho). My wife and I each had steak - mine with mushrooms and hers with blue cheese topping. one of my sons had sea bass, the other had fettuccini alfredo. another great meal in monteverde!
