DO IT If you’re in Monteverde, you have to do this. Great couples dinner. They go all out on the experience, way more than we expected. Can’t recommend it enough. I never write reviews either.

A must do if you’re in Monteverde! We weren’t expecting a fine dining experience on our trip to Costa Rica, but a friend recommended this restaurant. It was amazing! Not only was the food delicious but the link to the local area and the sensory surprises made this a truly fantastic dining...M experience. A big thank you to our host Roxanne, who was both knowledgeable and engaging!

One of the best overall dining experiences I have had This was truly one of the best overall dining experiences I have ever had. The intimacy of the setting is amazing. The individiual glass dining spaces are like little jewel boxes in the tree canop.y. It was raining the evening we where there and it...M made it feel even more special. They are quite comfortable and provide blankets for a littel extra warmth after the sun goes down. I honestly did not have high expectations for the food as I thought the setting was the draw. But I was so wrong. Every course was delicous and I loved they way they weaved the local culture and history in the food preparations. Finally, the service was excellent. The courses were well timed so you never felt rushed and could enjoy the beautiful setting. For me, this is a place I will go to everytime I am in Monteverde. You definitely need to make reservations well in advance though as they only have 8 tables.

Magnificent dinner in the canopy! Delicous and intriguing! We had a sunset 7 course degustation with wine pairing. The service was done with outmost professionalism, while still being friendly and welcoming. The dinner was excellently structured and each course was not only delicious and a work of art but educational as well. The...M dishes each represented something about the area, or Costra Rica as a whole, and we really appreciated that. The size of the portions was excellent, and not too large thankfully. The restaurant came highly recommended by our local guide, and we booked despite the realitively high price, but it was totally worth it. Unforgottable!

Unbelievable experience This dinner was unforgettable. My girlfriend and I have been in Costa Rica for 6 weeks and this is one of our favorite experiences in the country. The view is beautiful, the ambiance intimate, and the food delicious. It is really more of an experience...M than a meal. There are so many thoughtful touches included throughout your time here. I would definitely recommend the 5pm time slot so you can see sunset and the night ambiance (candles, etc). They are both lovely and you’ll only get the latter experience if you book the 8:30pm. Would happily return in the future.

Stunning in every way San Lucas Treetop Dining was a last minute find for us whilst on honeymoon and it exceeded all expectations! We like to indulge in fine dining for special occasions and when I say this lived up to some of the best Michelin starred places we’ve...M been lucky enough to visit, I’m not exaggerating. Not just because the food was delicious (which it was - every mouthful) but also the incredible atmosphere, friendly and knowledgeable staff and the way the menu was so brilliantly tailored to teach you a little more about the local area. Superb in every aspect!

Unique, intimate dining experience not to be missed! Wow. This was hands down, the best dining experience I’ve ever had. It was a complete sensory experience with lots of unsuspected elements that added to the unique dining experience. The foods were local and each course represented something unique about Costa Rica and Monteverde....M The service was fantastic and atmosphere excellent with lots of flickering candlelight. We booked the family room so that our kiddos could chill out while the adults dined. We could not get a reservation at 5pm so we fed our kiddos before we went to the restaurant for our 8:30pm seating. I highly recommend this restaurant. It’s a destination in and of itself.
