Nothing spectacular, but it was a pleasant experience, in an orderly and clean place, with correct attention and simple good food. Chicken with tortillas and salad, accompanied by lemonade, for US $ 13,21.

We ate here twice during our stay in Santa Elena so it must be OK! Good variety of food and decent service. Great milkshakes.

We ate here one lunchtime, the food was very good and excellent value. If you are in Monteverde and are looking for somewhere to eat I would recommend finding Morpho's you won't be disapointed.

Very nice food and friendly staff. A good break from the usual sodas and casados! We all enjoyed it very much and desserts were yummy!

If you are a bit tired of the local food this is a good place to try a different thing. They have several options, all of them with original interesting flavors. The place is decorated in honor of the Morpho butterfly.

The salad was limp, the entree was a disaster and I can only acknowledge the frozen peanut butter cheesecake desert as "decent". Wine and beer served were ok, but nothing to write home about. Very disappointing for such a touted restaurant.

This is a lovely restaurant with good food and wine, and excellent service. Menu had plenty of options and easily accommodated my gluten free diet.

Very good food, atmosphere, service We ordered different types of food and all was very good and tasty. The only comment to improve is the chairs which looks nice and authentic but not too much comfortable... We loved the stay

I'm not sure what you are asking. If you are asking what he did that was rude, I'd simply say that he neglected his duty. We waited and waited to order until I finally had to leave the table and find him to say that we... More
