Great little spot. Order a pita, and select from a big variety of fillings. Very clean, fast, and efficient. Easily ranks in the top 10% of Middle-eastern places we have eaten in (on 3 continents). Something to please anyone! Nice seating areas indoors and outdoors.

Food is tasty, plentiful, and fairly priced. There is indoor and outdoor seating in an open mall. It seems like all servers work all tables, therefore the service very quick.

This Israeli place serves wine, as well as, great lamb shawarma and humus dishes. Falafel and chicken were also great. Everything was fresh and tasty and the portions were large. You select your own heat level, and ingredients, in the sandwiches. I had a glass of white, very descent, and a nice pour, with my meal. The espresso was great... More

This place is fantastic. The food is wonderful and it's the cleanest restaurant in Costa Rica. Try to go on a Friday afternoon for their Challah/Jala.

This place has a mix of mediterranean choices: good humus, nice falafel, good shawarma. Stay away from typical fast food choices, avoid papas fritas and hamburgesas and and you will be fine :-). My reco is shawarma on humus. They have some more "tico" options, but why go tico when you come to a middle east eatery :-)

I have been to Sisso 3 times over the last year. Food is somewhat typical for Middle Eastern food. Quality is very good, premises are good, clean with inside and outside seating. The place seems to be busy most of the time. I would return there for another meal.

Sisso is one of my go-to lunch places when in Costa Rica. The food is great, specially the chicken shwarma, my personal favorite (both in "plate" form or in pita sandwich). The hummus is creamy and delicious and the pitas are nice and fluffy! The staff is great, friendly and attentive. Location is very convenient, and the restaurant is nice,... More

Although the location belies the quality of the experience, it is definitely worth the visit. Service is prompt, food fresh and tasty. The Mediterranean menu is varied and everything seems to be prepared and presented well. Service is friendly and attentive. Having been there a few times, the servers recognize repeat customers and are friendly without going over the top.... More
