“Nice venue, a little touristy”
Reviewed 27 April 2014

The food was good and they had live music to keep the kids entertained. Our cab driver played in the band that night, which is why we chose to eat at Tree House. It is an interesting place and there are shops nearby too. This is not where the locals eat though.

“Once in a lifetime experience.”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

We ate there twice, because we found the location to be so amazing. Each time we asked for the balcony, under the tree and was so awesome to sit there looking at the people on the street with these old branches above. The food was good, not expensive and generally I place highly recommended.

“Pretty good food, fun setting”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

We ate here twice during our stay in Santa Elena. Nothing wrong with the food or service, but I don't think I'd eat here unless I could get seated near the tree.
