This was fun to eat seated around an old, huge ficus tree. What surprised me was that for a tourist place, the prices were quite reasonable and the food was quite good. Some of the portions are rather large, so try the same thing in an appetizer - you can always order more if still hungry. Be sure to stroll around and look at the wonderfully handcrafted wood tables and chairs (all different) with some unusual pedestals and one large table in particular made from just one slab.

Prices not over the top. Waiters very obliging. Good was good. Venue very unusual. Would recommend a visit there.

Our tour guide recommended Tree House Restaurant Cafe and did not steer us wrong. Nastalgic restaurant is built around a beautiful hard wood tree. Food was reasonably priced and good. I had the house salad (make sure you specify grilled or fried chicken) and my husband had hamburger and said it was superb. I think the fries were fresh cut? Nice place to visit when traveling.

Worth a visit if in the area, we visited this restaurant during a storm and it was a memorable experience for it to rain in the restaurant! Nice food and reasonable pricing, especially considering the unique venue

We had seen other reviews for this place and we weren't disappointed. The food was well-prepared and priced comparably to most restaurants in CR. The place is built around a huge tree, too. We even enjoyed a craft beer instead of the old standbys, Imperial and Pilsen.
