A quaint restaurant in the center of town. The Blue Morpho butterfly is a beautiful insect and this restaurant is equally delightful. The service was top notch and the food very good. We ate at several restaurants in Monteverde and this was by far our favorite. The price is a great value in the area.

The restaurant was lovely. Sadly there was not really much on the vegan side, but they made something specially. worth a stop whilst visiting.

Morpho's has style and produces good well-presented food. Service was the quickest we encountered in CR. Probably the best restaurant in Santa Elena; we're going back tonight!

Four of us went for dinner. We all had the spaghetti and dessert. The staff were very efficient and friendly. The cheap Chilean red wine was very good as well.

We ordered some typical local dishes for lunch. Service was attentive and food was good. Some of the other dishes looked a little pricey for lunch.

I had the mouth watering burger and a pork chop dinner the sauce was absolutely amazing...so creamy. We love dipping the garlic bresd into it for some extra flavor! The Coconut Almond Brownie for dessert was the best! We got chocolate ice cream to go with it & you could taste the creamyness!

We stopped by here just to take a look. It's a cute place & clean. Prices seemed a little high. We would rather eat at a more typical CR restaurant to experience less touristy places.

Excellent restaurant. My wife and I both had the burgers washed down with a bottle of Merlot. They were delicious the bun was fresh and the beef was tender and very tasty. The wine was good too. The service was probably to quick as it is in Costa Rica. So as always we ordered the wine and then ordered the... More

We saw a review in a book and decided to try it. Had the special which was a chicken with a cranberry, blackberry, strawberry and red wine sauce on the side with rice and a lovely salad. The chicken was so tender but crisp on the outside. And so nice to not have the sauce covering the chicken but attractively... More

The restaurant is hard to miss in this small town, because large blue butterflies adorn the outside walls. Inside there are more wall murals and interesting knarled wooded furniture tables and chairs. The food is generous, but lacks originality. The service was good. Reservations are suggested.
