Needing to rest in mid afternoon, we stopped by since this restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel. We just wanted a cold beverage, and found 2 that were delicious. I had their signature cold mocha drink with coffee liqueur, and my husband had a fruit smoothie. Both were yummy, although the prices were equivalent to the U.S. The decor... More

We had the vegetarian asado with avacado, cheese and beans - ok , but a little dull. The mixed fruits smoothie was good. Service ok. Interior and exterior are butterly themed. On the expensive side.

We had the shrimp with rice dish, the chicken casado meal, and the chicken/tortillas/salad and everything was absolutely delicious! The butterfly and other forest murals/paintings on the walls and butterfly light fixtures were pretty cool too!

What a fun place! It was packed and the food was delicious. My family of four went for dinner and ordered different apps and entrees and we were all happy. Prices are good and the murals on the wall and the decor puts everyone at ease and in a good mood. Great vibe, fun to people watch. We arrived around... More

What a treat! Went and checked this place out on our first night in Monteverde. The location is great, located right in the center of Santa Elena and easy to walk to. The building itself is lovely with the exterior and interior completely covered in murals. Butterflies are the theme of this restaurant and there is no way to miss... More

We had the best meal, chicken in coconut sauce with roasted potatoes and vegetables. The waitress was very helpful and knowledgeable about their gluten free options. The decor is lushly painted jungle scenes, and colorful painted butterflies. Beautiful inside and out. If you go to Monteverde, this place is "the place to eat".

Thank Diane T
