We loved the food here. The restaurant is semi-outdoors, but they have heaters available to keep you warm! Our waiter spoke English well. The fajitas were SO good, and so were the nachos! Not bad in price, either.

Group of 8 thoroughly enjoyed all of our meals and the service was very good. Open air area with unique tables/stools as well as part of the restaurant is more closed in from the elements if windy or rainy.

This is a great place to get a drink, but the food is over-priced and so-so.

I was drawn into the Tree House Restaurant because of its sign advertising itself as one of the '10 weirdest restaurants in the world'. The restaurant is on the second story, and open air, making it a nice place to sit and watch people walk by on the street, and the gigantic tree that is growing through the restaurant gives it very cool atmosphere.

It was a cool place to eat, but the food was average and overpriced for the area. Fun pictures, though!

Cool entrance, with the spiral staircase going around the tree trunk. Shame the view to the rear is spoilt by the warehouse roof behind, but we really enjoyed it. My friends ordered ribs and really enjoyed them ($20 though).
