Not especially inexpensive but enjoyable local food served by friendly staff. There is parking and the inside is painted with exotic forest scenes which makes for a nice atmosphere.

I was worried that this would be overly touristy and overpriced. Instead, I found reasonable fresh food with comida typica options, as well as good (maybe best on this trip) burgers and ice cream for the kids. It is just minutes from the "downtown" and has a pleasant ambiance. My only complaint was service, which was lackluster but that may... More

We were looking for place for an early family dinner and it started to rain. We didn't think Morpho's was open but it was. We had an excellent meal and drinks. Very friendly staff. It as also very convenient to our hotel and we had a very quick walk back to the hotel.

We were looking at a place for an early dinner and Morpho's fit the bill. We had an excellent dinner, drinks, and deserts. The kids were able to pick out a meal and the adults had delicious food and drinks as well.

We stopped here for lunch and had a great experience. Our waiter was excellent. They made a custom salad for my plant-based-diet husband and the fruit plate was beautiful. I had the chicken casados and thought it was better than other casados I had had throughout Costa Rica. I also had a mixed fruit smoothie that was delicious.

If youre graving a really good burger, I highly recommend Morphos :) The Fruitmilkshakes are outstanding as well and all in all it is a really nice charming restaurant.

The plantains were delicious and they had many sauces (hot, lizano, oil and vinegar) available at the table. I got soursop juice, it was delicious!! He got a peanut butter banana chocolate milkshake which was great. A little pricey (total meal was $33) but... More

First place we tried when arriving in Monteverde. For the price, the food was not very impressionable. Both my husband and I thought it was o.k., but not great. The ice coffee was good. Of course the building and artwork is beautiful, had hoped for more in the food

Thank Mr and Mrs P
