“Nice place to grab a beer”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

We didn't stay too long in here as we were going to eat here but got annoyed by how long it took to order so gave up. It's a funky place with a massive tree in the centre. Expensive with poor service (busy at the time)

“Pricey for what you get”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

The concept of a tree house restaurant is pretty cool but the prices are higher than other restaurants in town. The food was good but small portions.

“Unique restaurant, but expensive”
Reviewed May 4, 2013

It really is in a tree. It's pretty unique, and quite nice. We had two entres and both were very good, but it was expensive. Staff was friendly and helpful and spoke English. It's right in the center of "town" and there's a Tree House Hotel, too, I think. It was a fun lunch, but at almost $35 for two people (2 entres and 2 beers), it was really expensive.

“Skip it”
Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

Went there for dinner. Had nice ambiance being in a tree and all but the food was mediocre. I had the local cuisine and was disappointed. It was way more expensive than what you get at other places and not as good. A very Americanized place. Go somewhere else instead and have real Costa Rican food.
