TAMARINDO YEEEEII - We arrive around noon time, After long drive, desperate to feed our self in some good quality of food, after all the - i dont know where - on the roads.
we saw the sign "FALAFEL BAR" in the center of tamarindo nice area, looks safe to eat, in the place few people eating on the teras - o.k lets stop to get some arabian food.
looks nice arabian place, but the service was buy local people that makes as in stress.
the place was occupied with 4 tables including us.
we like to order starts of hummus plate with extra pita bread and portion of shuwarma - But They Not Serving Shuwarma Only - Just in a Pita bread as sandwich or in a plate with sides orders - Fail - so we asked for few falafels balls to dip with the hummus plate. For the main Shot, each of us order falafel in pita bread.
We waited more then 20 minute to get our starts. we got few totally black screaming of burning out falafel balls, The hummus plate came 5 minute after - so, no falafel in hummus dip dream, we order 2 pitas extra that never came, THEN WE FOUND OUT that our falafel pita are waiting since the starts came out. all the pita got opened so i needed to ask for fork and knife. my friend got his falafel and salads on his pans!!! The End - the service that we never got payed off by 10%!!!???%%%

THIS PLACE NOT GOING TO BE PART OF MY FAVORITE PLACES AT ALL!!!

we asked to talk to the owners or manager - but they says that we need to come back latter because they working now and there is no one that can talk to us now!!!

I love good falafel but it is hard to find outside Israel. Maybe the ingredients are hard to come by - Saying that, I wanted to check out the falafel bar since it is run by an Israeli family (who are lovely people). I ordered a falafel and an extra order of humus for my lunch. I found the pita to be light and fluffy and the falafel balls to be small and crispy (just the way I like them) but the sauces (usually the best part) were bland and flavorless. Also, we did not get any extra pita with our order of humus. Maybe I just caught them on a bad day.

Small place just out of main area, with a few eat in tables, we took ours to go. Ordered the pita falafel, delicious. All the sides looked fresh and tempting.

If you're looking for a quick bite to eat the falafel bar is a great little place to try. Nothing fancy, but the food is fresh, the portions are decent and they serve really good pita bread! I had the chicken shwarma, and it was delicious!

This place is a godsend for vegetarians and is the real deal: awesome falafel (not too dry, not too herby, just right), finger-licking sides (cabbage salad, beet salad, tabouleh, eggplant, hummus, etc.), and delightful owners.
