Very tasty authentic Mediterranean food. We ate falafel, shawarma, chicken stake and Hummus, all was prepared fresh for us, the service was heartful and warm, the prices very reasonable. We finished with some tea and great browney and ice cream. All oyr family, ages 2-70, had amazing meal. We left nothing on the plates.... we will come back tomorrow! !!

We stopped by falafel bar for a quick bite without spending too much. We had the lamb plate and a falafel sandwich, with tip we paid around 10,000 colones or 20.00USD. The food was fresh and delicious.

My spouse is a vegetarian so it can be a little tricky to find places that have something more to offer than just a salad. We both had the plate combos; I had the chicken shawarma and she had the falafel. Mine was great, but hers was INCREDIBLE. As a devout carnivore, it sucks when I leave wishing I had... More

Great mediterranean food!! The food is delicious! The pita bread is to die for. This place comes highly recommended. The lemonade with mint is a must try. The waitress working at this restaurant works very hard and the service is great. Go eat here, you won't be disappointed.

This place has some of the best Israeli/Mediterranean food I've had outside of that region. The food was so well cooked and flavored. The falafel and shawarma were so tasty and filling. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

We had really good houmus and falafel, served by a friendly waitress. The place has something which is rare in Tamarindo: a good price-quality ratio.

I went to the Falafel bar with three friends on a Sunday afternoon. We were the only guests and since we were really hungry we ordered a lot. The service were good and it didn't take that long until we got our food. We also did some adjustments from the menu and there were no problems. The food was really... More
