Great meal

We ate lunch here a couple of times during our week in PDC. Delicious falafel with tasty sauces and refreshing fresh lemonade. Close to the beach so a perfect place to grab lunch.

Cute modern vibe for good felafel and great lemon juices ( traditional or lots of different combinations). Reasonably priced and friendly service. Can take away or eat in air conditioned comfort or under shady trees.

Fresh and tasty falafels. My husband and I decided to have a change from the Mexican cuisine and had read reviews about Chic pea. It's away from all the main bustle of 5th Avenue and that's nice for a change of pace. My husband went to pick up and brought back to our hotel. Would definitely go back again.

The food is fresh and tasty. A great place to walk up to to bring to the beach. Great lemonade fresh and tasty and the service is quick and friendly. I really like the health option about a 4 minute walk from the beach.

This place is really really good. Top 3 Falafel I've ever had. We had the Falafel Burger and the Falafel Burrito. Also had the hummus which was also really good. Can't wait to go back. Lemonade is good and fresh, but not on the sweet side, more on the natural side. All in all a great place to eat.

I went with my friends and this is a great place to visit. It is relaxing, out of the really tourist spot of te city. We all asked for different kind of falafel and all were delicious. The combination with a lemonade is perfect. I go to Playa del Carmen every 2 months and I always go back. It's great!!!

This place is really simple but VERY good. Staff is nice and prices are reasonable. I had the hamburguesa and my girlfriend had an Italian sandwich and they were both really good. They put a bucket of 6-7 different sauces on the table and they are just delicious. We could not stop eating. I would like the dessert menu to... More

We visited because it had good reviews and was vegetarian. We both went for the burrito - this is not a particularly healthy option, but it was sooooo tasty! The lady that served us was really nice and friendly too. We were given lots of different sauces to try. We weren't in PDC very long but we made sure we... More

The falafelburger was excellent. Together with a lemon juice it was just the perfect lunch. Yummie! The waitress was very kind and the restaurant was just one block away from the 5th avenue. A great spot!
