Ordering 2 entrees for 2 people was a huge mistake

The portions are huge! Plan to order 1 entrée for every 2 or 3 people and a couple of sides. The spicy sauce was one of a kind and not to be missed. The eggplant was wonderful. The salads fresh and good. The hummus portion was enough for several people and a falafel plate comes with at least 6... read more

We just stumbled across this place biking from Punta Uva up to Puerto Viejo. I had the hummus plate with pita and tabbouleh. My friends the lamp pita and a falafel plate with baba ganoush, and we shared a pitcher of mint lemonade. We left very stuffed and very happy.

My wife and I decided to eat here as we fancied something a bit different to Costa Rican food. We shared hummus to start with and my wife had Chicken sharwarma in pita and I had a chicken sharwarma plate. The food was very tasty especially the hummus and spicy sauce. The pita was slightly heavy but still enjoyable. The... More

The not really cooked puffy pita was about 400 grams of bleached white flour. Inside, you get 3 or 4 balls of fried garbanzo that tastes less authentic than the many falafel I had throughout the middle east. Topped by sour cabbage. It's huge, so you may never get to it, but to save on filling your pita with vegetables,... More

Great, tasty, fresh food cooked with care. Excellent service, a great place! Lamb was mouthwatering and tender, excellently seasoned. The fresh baked bread was fresh and delicate. My partner's vegetarian dish of falafel was flavoursome and appealing. The dishes were all of the highest quality - this really is home-styled Israeli cooking of a fine quality, and we couldn't have... More

We stumbled across pita bonita after snorkeling and wanted a late lunch. After looking at the menu we ordered the table for two with lamb kebab and shawarma. It was a full on feast and every dish tasted lovely. A little bonus when they thought we had ordered falafel when we hadn't and gave it to us free anyway, and... More
