We came here twice, once to ring in 2014 with their live music and great cocktails, and once to eat dinner. We enjoyed ourselves immensely both times. The atmosphere is great--an open area of course built around a giant tree--very unique. I'd recommend sitting on the restaurant side if you don't have a jacket or long pants in the evening as it was quite chilly and breezy, but we really enjoyed ourselves with their live music.

The evening we ate here for dinner was also great--we had chicken fajitas and it was delicious!

It is just a really cool spot. We didn't eat there, just got drinks and people watched from above in the canopy.

Really liked this restaurant with a huge tree growing through it. Had very nice lunch, delicious lemonades. Very friendly efficient staff. Definitely recommended.

While walking through St. Elena checking out the souvenir and T-shirt stores we decided to have a beer at the treehouse. The service was fine, and we enjoyed sitting in a restuarant built around a huge tree. Bring a windbreaker, since it can be cool due to the ever-present windgusts.

The restaurant is fun to visit but we found the service was lacking. The food was so so and took a while to arrive. The lovely tree is not to be missed but perhaps just stay for a quick drink.
