The Tree House is famous for its beautiful fig tree that grows right in the center of the restaurant, giving diners something to admire while enjoying their food! This gigantic tree was planted about 60 years ago, long before the town of Santa Elena even existed and climbed many a time by children. The restaurant offers more unusual choices than some of the neighboring restaurants, as well as pizza, sandwiches, Mexican dishes and typical ‘casados’ (rice and beans.) There is an extensive wine list, a selection of exotic cocktails, beer and delicious coffee. The coffee comes from Santa Maria de Dota (part of the Tarrazú region) and is renowned for its excellent quality. Here at the Tree House: high quality coffee + specialist coffee chefs ‘baristas’ = the perfect cup of coffee!
Depending on the season there is live music most evenings: A duo known as “The Club 2” offers a mixture of Latin music; reggae roots, salsa and bachatta. There is also a marimba, which is a musical instrument in the percussion family and Trova, which is one of the great roots of cuban music tree. Service is excellent along with a real feel good and relaxing atmosphere.
