“Great Food and Atmosphere”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

This treehouse restaurant is truly something special. The tapas were all amazing but it is very pricey. We were a little shocked when we got our ticket, but all the food was great. We had the Fillet, Ahi Tuna, Firecracker Shrimp and the Lettuce Wraps. The Ahi Tuna was cooked perfectly and I'd definitely recommend that. We also had the Fillet which was impressive. Cooked perfect and with skinny onion rings. The shrimp were good but not really spicy as the name implies. I drank Mojitos which were amazing. Everyone else had the house margarita which they all said were great.

The service was great and all the food was served piping hot. Everything was full of flavor and quite enjoyable. Dress comfortably, the entire restaurant is outdoors and there may be bugs so bring spray. It's worth experiencing, but be prepared to have the pocket book open.

“Great meal and great service!”
Reviewed 12 June 2014

We had our entire wedding party and guests here for a meal a couple of nights before our wedding. They really did a great job accommodating a large party and also worked very well with us splitting multiple checks that could have become very confusing.

The food is Asian flair with local seafood. The portions are smaller is size, so expect or order several per person or spare with some one. Over all I would rate the quality of the food as above average and the service as EXCELLENT!
