Visited twice while we were in Santa Teresa. I had the falafel hummus plate both times and it was gorgeous. The pitta was soft and melt in the mouth, and the hummus was creamy and tasty. My husband had the Casado chicken plate and also really enjoyed it. I can definitely also recommend the frozen cocktails. Strawberry mojito went straight... More

Our family of five ate dinner here. The atmosphere is relaxed, the couch chairs are comfy, they played good music and the service was excellent! A bit noisy by the road but that's Santa Teresa for you. The most important thing is the food was fantastic and reasonably priced! We had the falafel plate, chicken pita and a fish fillet... More

The smoothies and juices are so good here. The shawarma was huge and enough for 2 people! The fries were also really good! Great spot for a mid-day lunch after a morning of surfing!

This restaurant offers a great mix between Caribbean and middle eastern food, and we were not disappointed. Both tasty and spicy sauces, good hummus and the chicken on the grill was the highlight of the meal. I always thinks that one pita is too little for this kind of meza meal and the falafel was a little bit too much... More

The food & smoothies here are delicious. Lovely restaurant & staff are nice too. I really loved the hummus & falafel, which you can't seem to find in many other restaurants. My only criticism is it was a bit pricey. But then again, hummus in the supermarkets is $8 a pot so you can see why they have to charge... More

Nice, tasty dishes. Huge quantities of food! Pleasant ambiance. Smoothies are good, but also huge. After one of those there is hardly any need for dinner. Consider sharing dishes.

They claim to have the best falafel in town. Well, I think it's not very hard to claim this in a Costa Rican town. Compared to other places in the world, their falafel are mediocre. I had a hummus and falafel plate. The hummus was disappointing. Bland, very small amount. The falafel and the fries were fried too long. Salad... More

We came for lunch and had a delicious falafel and avocado salad and a falafel pitta with chips! Everything was delicious! Bit expensive for lunch but worth the money! I also had a peanut butter and banana smoothie which was huge, a meal in itself! A good find and definitely worth a visit!
