We were staying at si como no and saw the falafel bar, so looked up reviews on tripadvisor. We went (4 of us,husband,wife,2sons) for lunch one and dinner the next day. Falafel is better than what we have eaten in bigger cities in U.S.. Loved the food and the smoothies. Extremely friendly staff.

We were a bit skeptical about having Israeli food in Costa Rica, but were pleasantly surprised by the Falafel Bar. We ended up having lunch there twice. I had a sabich, a pita sandwich with roasted eggplant and various salads, and my daughter had falafel. The second time, we also had smoothies, which were delicious. The owner was very friendly...

I had hands down the best falafel I've ever had here! Cute and clean open concept restaurant that is great for a quick lunch. Some days we would grab take-out and bring our wraps to the beach :) Definitely recommend.

Great customer service! I was trying to catch a cab but really wanted some falafel and asked if they could get it fast so the cabbie wouldn't run out the meter, the blonde girl rushed my order and it was AMAZING! I totally needed that falafel and shwarma fix, get this if you're in quepos

I know this is a falafel bar, but a smoothie is a perfect midday meal after a large breakfast and most possibly a large dinner. They make an excellent smoothy here and you can customize it any way you want. Better and healthier than the ice cream down the street. They also make pretty good cookies.

Awesome authentic Israeli cuisine! Every time I need a falafel fix I come to the Falafel Bar. I love that they prepare the plate or sandwich to your liking. Great service and atmosphere to enjoy your meal.
