Food is excellent and the experience of eating in a tree is just breathtaking. We had the Costa Rico platter and a salad and also a veggie pizza which we took home with us. It really was lovely

Definitely on the expensive side, but worth it! Had a great meal here, one of the best in CR. Entertainment was great as well, and, of course, the ambience is amazing. Can’t say I’ve ever eaten in a tree house before!

Visited for lunch as a group. Everyone's food was very tasty with large portions. The restaurant is decorated in an interesting way with a real tree at the heart of it. Well set up for groups to pay individually.
