We visited there four friends and had a great time. The owners are very nice! The Hummus is awesome and if Israelis say it's awesome - it's probably awesome. Very recommended - Watermelon and basil shake! :)

After a morning surfing, our kids needed food to recharge. The Falafal Bar was a great choice. Fast and very friendly service with a great selection on salads, Hummus and of course Falafals. The AC was a blessing after four hours on the beach and in the sea. Food was washed down with mint lemonade. We'll be back.

I've visited Tamarindo many times and I've always heard about Falafel Bar, but have never gone. Finally went today for lunch. The indoors (with A/C) was busy... outdoor seating available, but the staff was friendly and made room for our party of 6 indoors. My family was super hungry, so they ordered full size entrees/meals... I was not terribly hungry,... More

Visited this restaurant on our first day in Tamarindo. After travelling for a few weeks Falafel was a welcome break from the local food. Good portion sizes, delicious and healthy
