Very nice - lives up to the pictures. Great cocktails, coffee drinks. Food was excellent and there were vegetarian choices. Service way above average. Great stop after the orchid place right next door.

Morphos had good food at a reasonable price. We decided to try the Monteverde cheese sampler and the Peach Chicken. The food was good! And had a very nice server. Definitely a place to enjoy for lunch. No real complaints

Quirky decor, decent food and good staff make this a place worth visiting. The menu has lots of the local standards and, consistent with local custom, the servings are large. Service was as good or better than everywhere else that I ate in town.

Why is your American waiter so rude. Look him up...the evening of July 28.

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
