“Always coming back...”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

This is not our first or our last trip to Morgans!
Their wood fired menu gives meat lovers plenty to look forward to in a unique garden hacienda atmosphere. This time we had the lamb and the baby back ribs (with a wonderful raspberry chipotle barbecue) and entrees are accompanied by fresh, organic, local vegetables. The meats were tender and done perfectly and the vegetables simple but delicious. The open kitchen wood fired oven and grill are great to watch and live music is not uncommon. The garden feel adds charm and comfort while excellent service help make this an outstanding choice all around.
Easy to find around the corner from the centro, just down from the church, very close to the main road Morgan's is a popular spot- but give yourself a few extra minutes to park as you may need to walk a block or two. In low season and a Sunday night it was not busy but I would highly recommend reservations in season, on weekends or for larger parties.

“Pricey for Area but GOOD!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Considering it is Mexico and you can get steak and wine anywhere in the world, This was a good place to eat a little more upscale than other restaurants in the area.

“Wonderful food and Killer margaritas!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

All in a nice, friendly setting. The wood grilled meats and fish are wonderful and accompanied by inventive side dishes. The appetizers all sounded so good that we ordered four for the table and were not disappointed by a one of them. There were six of us ordering pork, ribs, fish, steak...and we all raved about how good our entrees were. Prices are middling to high for a non-resort restaurant in Mexico, but worth every penny.

“Morgan's Will Not Disappoint!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

I have eaten at Morgan's several times over the past 12 years. Most recently, my friend and I shared the coconut shrimp and I had a salad. The salad was outstanding! So fresh and delicious! The coconut shrimp was very good. Service at Morgan's is excellent. Our waiter was outstanding - attentive without being intrusive. I don't care for the musicians that wander through the restaurant stopping at individual tables; however, they did respect our refusal when they came to our table. It is unfortunate that there was a large table of American tourists near us who had had too much to drink and were both loud and obnoxious - but this seems to be what's happening in San Jose with so many new, huge hotels. I will definitely return to Morgan's!

“Fantastic find!!!”
Reviewed April 24, 2013

We were going to go to a place called Emanuel's -- but it is gone now. So our cab driver suggested Morgan's. We gave it a try, and were so happy we did!! Great appetizers, good fish, great steak, and the atmosphere is so different, and relaxing. Loved it!!
