Even in the rain, this was a great place to enjoy people watching, the special atmosphere of the giant ficus, and good food. We stopped here after the Monteverde butterfly gardens and sat inside where the chairs are padded and more comfortable. You would not come here for destination dining; but it is a wonderful, casual place with a unique atmosphere in a small town with little iof nterest otherwise. Loved the experience.

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.
