“Definitely Worth Finding”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

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. Prices are reasonable.

You can sit outside or inside. There is even a smallish area to lounge on large chairs outside and enjoy apps (not the digital ones although that too could be?), drinks, etc. Although the restaurant is right next to the parking, there isn't much traffic so as to destroy the look and feel.

A great spot for lunch, and also a quick dinner or even carry-out as a local place.

“Decent meals at reasonable prices ”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

Ambiance is nice, you can smell good food when you enter.

The restaurant serves great food. The pita bread was cold though, otherwise the rest of the meal was pretty tasty.

I ordered kebab and lemonade with herba Buena.

Prices are reasonable.

“Middle Eastern in Costa Rica”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

This was another one of those tripadvisor recommendations near our hotel that paid off again. Gee! Go figure! We like middle eastern/Mediterranean food and thought it would be fun to see what it would be like in Costa Rica. The shuwarma was excellent as was the sangria that we had to accompany our dinner. All in all another tripadvisor find.
