I went to the restroom and asked for the check. When I returned to my table my last piece of pizza was thrown in the garbage, along with the artisanal hot sauce I brought. Que feo!

Service was bad. Food was not as good as what you can eat elsewhere in half the price. We regret choosing this place for lunch

The environment is beautiful. Our service was mediocre. I ordered the shrimp curry and it had a burnt taste. As I was eating the meal a bug crawled out of the rice. I called the waiter over to show him and asked to send it back. He said that being under the tree that it must of fallen from there and he would not take it back. He then said if it was already in the rice it would have been cooked. I was blown away by his response. Others shared their food was not very good either. Alcoholic beverages were very sweet.

You just can't deny that it's fun to be inside a tree! Drinks and food are a bit over priced, but the live music was great and again, you're in a tree!
