Was told that this was a place worth going to and that proved to be true. Food was better than good. Nice atmosphere. As we keep kosher (and the restaurant is not kosher) we only ate the vegetarian food but we were pleased with the variety. Prices were good. Credit cards not available there but there is a bank machine... More

Nice simple falafel bar with good clean food and a self serve salad bar. Really different food. Quirky and simple,and if you like Israeli food you will love this.

If you're looking for a really good, inexpensive bite to eat, then stop by here. As others reviewers have stated, this is a quirky, friendly, laid-back establishment.

We ate at the falafel bar twice. The first time was excellent, and the second time was very good, but the service wasn't as good and the food (e.g., pita bread) didn't taste as fresh. It's a bit hard to find and a quirky place overall, but we would definitely return.

I've eaten falafel and Middle Eastern food all over the world - from Tel Aviv to London - and this is up there with the very best! Great team there too - well worth a visit or two whilst you're in Manuel Antonio.

Great selection of healthy foods, close by to our hotel (Tulemar). Great relaxing atmosphere in a simple "chilled" environment. If you are in MA, then get yourself down to the cool place with great prices

Great atmosphere. My boyfriend enjoyed his meal. We did order a hummus plate & weren't that impressed as it was somewhat flavorless. Everything else was great.

Thank Chelsea G
