I had the mouth watering burger and a pork chop dinner the sauce was absolutely amazing...so creamy. We love dipping the garlic bresd into it for some extra flavor! The Coconut Almond Brownie for dessert was the best! We got chocolate ice cream to go with it & you could taste the creamyness!

We stopped by here just to take a look. It's a cute place & clean. Prices seemed a little high. We would rather eat at a more typical CR restaurant to experience less touristy places.

Excellent restaurant. My wife and I both had the burgers washed down with a bottle of Merlot. They were delicious the bun was fresh and the beef was tender and very tasty. The wine was good too. The service was probably to quick as it is in Costa Rica. So as always we ordered the wine and then ordered the... More

We saw a review in a book and decided to try it. Had the special which was a chicken with a cranberry, blackberry, strawberry and red wine sauce on the side with rice and a lovely salad. The chicken was so tender but crisp on the outside. And so nice to not have the sauce covering the chicken but attractively... More

The restaurant is hard to miss in this small town, because large blue butterflies adorn the outside walls. Inside there are more wall murals and interesting knarled wooded furniture tables and chairs. The food is generous, but lacks originality. The service was good. Reservations are suggested.

I reviewed this place on tripadvisor and wanted to check it out first hand. I loved the decor and the detail. Butterfly's were everywhere from the tables, chairs to the stair railing and even hanging from the ceiling. The service was good and so was the food. I got a chicken tortilla and it was huge. Yes, it's a touristy... More

My 19-year old daughter and I ate here two of the three nights we spent in Monteverde. The first night we sat at the butterfly table upstairs - beautifully carved out of wood -and were so impressed with the atmosphere and the food that we had to come back. I had the Morpho's salad, which was filling enough to be... More

we have dinner here twice. Nice menu, reasonable prices and good service. you can get everything from a milkshake and hamburger to lovely entrees like peach chicken Chipotle and pork chops. also local casado or rice with whatever. we return here 5 nights and probably will go back one more time as it's the best full service restsurant.
