“Good food that's a bit overpriced.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

We enjoyed our meal here, but felt like the prices were a bit high compared to the other places in Monteverde where we felt like we enjoyed equally comparable meal quality. Great ambiance!

“Nice food and easy location in town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

This is mostly for tourists but not as expensive as Amy's or The Treehouse. Good sandwiches but service rather slow. Staff speak English.

“Interesting environment, food is good, but not fantastic”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2014

we went to dinner at Morpho's. We had a vegetarian combination and a palm salad. I also had one of their mixed drinks - Morpho's sunset or something like that. The food was good - the quantities were more than adequate. The drink was very good. The environment is fun - painted walls, big butterflies, etc. The prices are like standard American prices. A nice place to go.

Excellent traditional Costa Rica fair. Located in town center, right next to the Monteverde Orchid Garden.

“Not the worst burger...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2014

But by no stretch of the imagination, the best. We were sent here by the visitor's center at the entrance of Sta. Elena and told it was very good. It was okay, at best. But it was overpriced, bland and I felt like I'd been beaten with a stick after sitting in those pretty, rustic chairs. My husband insists that the fact that it was empty (until we were leaving) should have been our first indication. The service was good.
