The Treehouse is in the centre of town and feels like a central social hub. It is charming, funky and has reliably good food. We have been there a few times over the years of visiting the island and always had a pleasant experience and...More

Unique, funky and small. Indoor and outdoor seating. Good food, good service, good location. Entertainment on weekends.

When we first arrived, the restaurant was full. The woman who greeted us was curt, but we thanked her and went elsewhere. We were soon back though, as nothing else was open or available. We asked the same woman if it was still full, as...More

We were told there would be a 20 minute wait for a table so we put our names down and went for a wander. When we came back we were told it would be another 15-20 minutes. Luckily the food was well worth the wait...More

You will need to call them and ask. It's a fairly small place. Might be better to go to bigger place.
