Beautiful restaurant with great service and food

You can't miss Treehouse in Monteverde. It's a really beautiful restaurant with a tree growing through the center, and they hang lights on it to create a very cute atmosphere. There was also live music when we went. The food is more on the expensive side, but it didn't disappoint and proved to be a... read more

This was a nice lunch option with a varied menu in the centre of Santa Elena. Pleasant staff, not over priced. A good choice for a decent meal and not overly expensive.

We went to the tree top restaurant to enjoy the special setting,- a restaurant nested in a huge tree. It is a beautyful place and the service is very friendly. The food is not so good. It appears they are really relying on the interesting setting. When we were there there was a nice band placing life Music. It is... More

The entire restaurant is built around a huge tree. It makes for a very interesting environment. The meal was very good and because we were on the second level, we could see the small downtown area. A fun visit.

This was slightly overpriced compared to the other restaurant in the area, however where else can you eat in such a unique setting with a tree going through the center of the restaurant so we never minded the cost. The food was yummy and the portions were large so that was great. They had a balcony that we like to... More

this is a nice place to eat especially at night (since there is live music). The cool thing about it is that there is a tree growing in the middle of the restaurant and the decoration is also nice. The food was ok but not quite what I expected for the place. But this is a nice place worth visiting.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is amazing with a huge tree coming up through the center. The food was very tasty (recommend the lemon ceviche!) and they have yum cocktails. The staff were also very friendly & helpful with tips on local activities. Restaurant is a must visit.
