Came here late one night greeted by excellent friendly service and freshly cooked schwarama (spelling?!) freshly baked pittas stuffed with the best tasting chicken I've had in Costa Rica. These guys know their food. Great prices, good music and free wifi. Highly recommended.

Loved this place. A very relaxed atmosphere. The food is great and not so expensive. They even have very special micro brewery beers from Costa Rica.

I went for a late lunch here, and my daughter and I we were the only customers. We ordered the shawarma and lamb kebab plates and asked for glasses of water.

Pita Bonita is a little out the way, and was very quiet . . . but the food is all very tasty, reasonably priced, and with big portion sizes. The homemade pitta was particularly good. Definitely a good option if your looking for a bit of a change.

Fresh and delicious food set in a cozy setting just off the street on the way to Punta Uva. Owner served us and was very friendly. Everything was homemade and wonderful.

We rate this number 1 in the area for delicious food. It wasn't open when we went for second time (irregular hours/days).

I ate a falafel pita at Pita Bonita- IT WAS DELISCIOUS! The best falafel I have had so far in life! It was big, it was flavorful, and it was not expensive. My friend had an onion, cucumber & parsley type salad that was also very tasty!
