Idiom: More than meets the eye : If there is more than meets the eye to something, it is more complex or difficult than it appears.

What "meets the eye" is what you see. So when there is something "more than meets the eye", it means you should look closer, things are not what they seem.

Both of the above answers are correct. Basically, "more than meets the eye" means that there is more to whatever it is you're looking at, thinking about experiencing, etc.
