Very tasty food, if you are looking for something other than casados or Costa Rican food this is a good option. They have limited seating but do takeaway also. Falafel and the humus are nice, good juices, prices are reasonable compared to some other overpriced poor quality restaurants in Samara.

Incredible food. Fresh, tasty, simple - the pita bread was soft and warm and the houmous was delicious. We went for lunch and it was really busy which is a great sign particularly as it’s off the main road so clearly it has a reputation for being good and worth the diversion down a smaller street. The pineapple and ginger fresh juice was one of the best things I’ve tasted.

Hands down the best prepared food, lunch or dinner in Samara. There is A LOT of touristy food, bad food and just OK food in Samara. Surprisingly there is a lack of fresh prepared foods.. granted we did travel during covid. Regardless, this place has delicious made to order healthy food. The prices also can't be beat. My favorite was the Falafeno wrap, fresh made falafel with fresh grilled chicken and salad in wrap with their special BBQ sauce on the side!!! OMG my mouth is watering thinking about it.. Congrats to this place for doing it right..

I tried half a dozen other restaurants before ordering here, right around the corner from my rental. The cafe was tiny and unprepossessing. But WOW! Great food, fresh, presented with a sense of artistry, and prepared after I ordered it, even the torilla, which was made from scratch. I ordered the "mixta," chicken, hummus and falafel with salad. Outdoor seating. I'm looking forward to my next meal there.

Excellent service and fantastic food - very delicious! We had the chicken dish and the shrimp burger with potato wedges. Highly recommend- great quality and very fresh! In all the places we have eaten at in Costa Rica - this is the only one that gave us ice in our water, very much appreciated in the hot weather.

Best plates ever. Such a big nice portion, fresh salads as much as you want and the hummus was homemade and sooo good. We had falaffal and shawarma and they were both excellent. We almost couldn't walk after we were done but we couldn't stop eating. And then we haven't discussed the pita. Speachless!!!!

Love this place…went back three times in three days. The kind of place you feel happy after eating at, healthy simple food made really well. Fresh, attention to detail and delicious above all else. Staff were very friendly and very reasonably priced for good sized portions.

So fresh and delicious. My favorite restaurant in Samara. I ordered the falafal plate and my husband had the tabouli plate, wow both so delicious. You can watch the owner's making your food who take pride in making good food and they are very friendly also. The prices are reasonable also. Look forward to my next visit.

Nice spot, fresh food prepared at the moment. Portion are a tad small to my taste but very tasty. We had the Falafel sandwich and the shrimp sandwich. They were kind enough to prepare for the kids chicken and very good wedge fries. Prices are very friendly, so highly recommended.

Amazing food. Had the falafeno sandwich with chicken and falafel and was blown away. Some of the best food I’ve eaten in my 2 months in Sámara. Fresh made sauces, falafel & pita. Perfectly grilled and seasoned chicken. Highly recommend! I will be back frequently I am sure.

Very fresh and tasty mediterranean-inspired fare at a good price. Kind owners/operators. Takes time because it's fresh (like almost everything in CR). One of our favorite places we ate while in Samara.

Probably the best flavors in town. We had the falafel with chicken wrap. A nice chipotle-based sauce they make for the side. Potato wedges were perfect - not too crispy and not soggy. The boss and her kids / siblings run the shop. Friendly and fun family.

Super delicious, really high quality ingredients. It's a tiny place, feels family run, just a couple tables in front of a little kitchen. Super friendly. The falafel plate is both wonderful and a great way to get fresh veggies; skip the yogurt and it's vegan. It's got a nice traveler vibe too, often neighborly between the tables.

We had the falafel plate and falafel sandwich - both were delicious and prepared fresh so expect to wait a few minutes. There were a few outdoor tables that were mostly in the shade. A nice spot for a casual bight!
