We're vegans and finding food in Costa Rica was hard, so we were really happy when we found this little hole in the wall place. Not much of an ambiance, very hot restaurant with no fans, no AC. Food takes forever to arrive! But as vegans we didn't have many options, so we settled for falafel wraps at this place.... More

Falafel Bar is literally right down the street from Hotel La Mariposa, where we were staying last week. We came here for lunch one day. The food was absolutely delicious. Nice, fresh veggies. My daughter said her falafel was the best she ever had. Hummus was fantastic, but ran out of pita, so we ate the rest with a spoon.... More

Being a lover of Mediterranean food, we had to stop at the Falafel Bar to check it out. Fortunately, we were not disappointed. Despite the limited number of items on the menu, all four of s had something different and everyone enjoyed their choices. The hummus is delicious but comes with only one pita. The serving was huge so we... More

This is one of the two best places to eat in Manuel Antonio for sure. It was some of the best falafel I have ever had. They also serve french fries with hummus in pita, which was really good.

Everyone was kind, the food was good and reasonably priced. The menu was a bit short offering about 7 dishes but everyone in my family had something different and we all liked what we had. Plus, they served big portion sizes which was a bonus considering the low price. Highly recommended.

The Falafel Bar in Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica is one of the best meal I have had here in a long time. This town is WAYYYY over priced for restaurants. BUT the Falafel Bar is a clean, fresh and happy discovery. I'm from Santa Cruz, California and haven eaten my fair share of falafels. I say this without any reservation... More

The name and the sign attracted me to the Falafel Bar. After requesting it for days, my boyfriend finally agreed to go there for lunch, and we were not disappointed. The food was fresh and light - a great lunch for a hot day. The owner was so friendly, the furniture was unique and fun, and the view was great.... More

This little gem we were thankful to discover during our stay in Manuel Antonio. The food was fresh, tasty and very inexpensive! The staff are friendly and the seating area is very relaxed and chill- lots of cute benches and tables overlooking a green space. My husband and I visited this place multiple times during our stay and would definitely... More
