Pleasant unique spot for lunch in Monteverde after morning activities. Built in and around a massive tree it is quite pleasant to be on the second or third floor overlooking the village centre. There menu is varied and well priced and well prepared. .....and it looks down on an ice cream bar featuring locally made ice cream in about20 flavours

Stopped here for lunch. The staff were very accommodating, altering dishes to suit out tastes. The food arrived promptly, was hot and delicious. The best meal I had in Costa Rica.

You have to go in--it's too appealing not to. But avoid the steaks, etc. Very expensive, not great and not a lot of food. Stick to drinks or drinks and an app, then move on.

Eating in this restaurant was a real revelation. Live band, a wide range of cocktails and food. If you're looking for a cozy dinner with Friends or with partner in monteverde...this is the place!

Average food in unusual setting in the centre of town- restaurant is over several floors centred around a large tree- its quirky but does tend to cater to tourists

This place is very unusual and a must do when staying in Monteverde. The tree in the middle is what makes this place different - but that said the food was good. I loved the pineapple fruit drink with water but you can add milk.
