The fat owner was stoned and smoking in the restaurant. The shawarma that I had was very, very salt. I only took a few bites and I felt really sick on my stomach. There are a lot of good restaurants in Puerto Viejo, but I would avoid this one.

We had heard of the greatness that is Pita Bonita in our initial research of the area. The pitas are just fantastic. You can also pick them up at some of the markets in the area. Great hummus. The owner was really nice, as was our waitress. We ate their pitas all month long. It was great!

Here the pitabread is bonita, just like the hummus (very subtle and refined) and the falafel. The kebab was also good although a little dry, but only just a little. Combine that with ice cold beer and this is definitely recommended.

Great atmosphere, friendly service, fair prices, and one of the best kabob pitas that we've ever had. The "Open Table for Two" was very good as well. So fresh & flavorful!

They make the Pita bread here and it is fantastic. They have great hummus and Mediterranean food. The sauce for the Gyros, is really good. This is an easy lunch to take to the beach...

Our group of 6 adults stayed near here for a week and only ate here twice, we should have rethought our priorities. The food here is SO AMAZING! Owner was great, service was excellent, and the food was superb. 5 of the 6 of us have lived in the middle eastern and to find such excellent lamb kebabs, chicken shawarma,... More

The service was excellent and it was so tasty! The pita was fresh and soft. The falafel was crisp and flavourful. Velvety hummus. The green hot sauce and pickled... More
