It is a cool spot, with a great view of Santa Elena. Service was very good but the food was nothing special.

Stopped in here right after getting into town. Looked interesting, was not disappointed. The building itself is interesting enough, but I really enjoyed having a balcony seat where I could survey the town and make plans.

Staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Food was close to top-notch.

The food is just pretty good but the ambiance can't be beat. You sit up on a platform built around a huge tree. It's beautiful and the kids loved it. We had pizza that was ok but the kids really enjoyed their dinner which made it more fun for us adults.

the coffee was okay however the ambience was great ! I wish they had some more menu choices , but we went there for the place. there is a small souvenir shop below the coffee shop.
I like that the barista made an effort to have a funny face on my mocha .

The Tree House was VERY cool. We walked stairs that spiraled around the tree trunk from ground level to the main floor. The restaurant was very dimly lit with lots of green lights around the tree limbs. The tree itself is massive and the tables/chairs are made from large slices of trees.

My wife and I both got seafood (shellfish) dishes and they were excellent. This was our favorite place in Monteverde/Santa Elena.
