We tried this place on day 2 of our vacation and came back every day for lunch. We bought their handmade pitas to eat with our dinner. Such a great price for a quick lunch break. You can sit outside on their patio or enjoy the air conditioning inside. Great vegan option.

Wow! excellent price for great food. We read the many reviews on tripadvisor about this restaurant before we left. We were looking for vegan options before we left so that we weren't wasting time while we were there and this restaurant came up a number of times. It's about 100 yds north of the paved part of the road, so... More

The food and so good that my wife and I ate lunch here both days that we were in Tamarindo. The pita is homemade, and the falafel stacks up against any that your will find in the Middle East. The only difference is that this food is not served out of a street cart surrounded by thousands of people and... More

If you are a "falafel-lover" you just have to visit this place!!! And if you're not a "falafel-lover" yet, you should also get there!! You will be one after the first tasty bite.

I've been in Tamarindo for 3 weeks and almost every night I go here to get falafel! It's delicious, healthy and at a good price. Can't say enough good things about this restaurant, my absolute favorite and wish I could bring it home with me! I'm gonna miss the beach and this restaurant the most from Tamarindo it's that good!!!

The staff was busy chatting and flirting, the food had a teasing hint of Middle Eastern food and the presentation was utterly sad. I had the Schnitzel, which was overcooked, wrongly prepared and tough. The shawarma was almost not edible...Not worth any price
