We drove past this restaurant on our way to our hotel and I thought it looked so cool. Two nights later, we walked into town and enjoyed a wonderful dinner. Such a unique experience and great food.

We had lunch in the famous tree house in the town centre. The view of the big tree in the middle of the restaurant was stunning. Great service.

Went here for lunch after our hanging bridges hike. Nice place to stop. Pros: awesome atmosphere, free wifi, drinks were amazing! Food was average (we had ceviche, chicken rolls and burrito). Cons... a bit pricey for average tasting food.
