Great food

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.

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. The owner made a big deal about giving me "his" water as opposed to me buying a bottle, when I had mentioned I would've gotten my own bottle which... More

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!

Pita Bonita is clean and has excellent falafel. I think this is the best place to eat in the area. It's also reasonably priced.

We stopped at this little, hard to spot restaurant during our bike ride from Puerto Viejo to Manzanillo and we were so happy we did. You wouldn't expect amazing Mediterranean food in Costa Rica but this truly was the best of the best. The Hummus and Falafel is not to be missed! The Falafel Plate is huge so come with... More

Yes we were starving after 4 hours of rain drenched river and ocean kayaking in Punta Uva but the the made from scratch Middle Eastern food we had at Pita Bonita was as good as any I have had anywhere, all over the U.S. Every dish was delicious. And, be sure to try their refreshing Mint Lemonade.

Our dinner at Pita Bonita was great. Love the atmosphere. Owner is very friendly and makes you feel like you are family. I ordered the chicken sharwarma dinner and my wife got the falafel plate. Both of these entrees were great. Had to take some home for later in the week. We also had a dinner salad which was good... More
