Honestly, we went here from a recommendation from a fellow traveler, but we expected over-priced and gimmicky food. The food, however, was good enough to stand on its own and priced in line with other restaurants in town. Simply put, no reason not to give it a try. They have indoor and outdoor seating and were flexible in allowing us to move when rain hit part way through our meal.

We just went for drinks (smoothie and beer) as the food is expensive and there are so many other options. Ask for your bill right after you receive your food/drinks as service is very slow

Worth a visit whilst in Monteverde. Restuarant set in a tree house in the middle of the town - food was ok but not incredible. Live music was good during dinner.

Busy restaurant, good atmosphere, definitely recommend for a relaxed glass of wine. We did not eat but the food looked good, although possibly a little pricy.

Very unique restaurant built around a living tree! the food was very good but a bit pricey. Staff very friendly with good service. Live music sounded good from the street, as the band came on after we left.
