I was in Santa Teresa for ten days, and probably ate lunch here 5 times, and each time the falafel. So good! I was a solo traveler/diner, but did not feel at all out of place or self conscious. The staff was attentive and friendly and made me feel right at home. And the price was right. Nothing beats good, inexpensive food and quality service.

Yes delicious, that sums up the great food and drink in this wonderful little place Just across the street from the beach.
Rotem, the owner always welcomes you as a friend, and looks after you throughout your meal.
The chef prepares the tastiest and amazing Israeli and middle eastern cuisine, to a very high standard.
The music is diverse, varied, and suits the laid back feeling of Zula, and of knowing you are having a great time.
Thanks guys and girls!

Beautiful beautiful food. Delicious. Probably the best meal we had in CR.

Surprised to find such wonderful Middle Eastern food in such an out of the way place :)

Went for the smoothies and stayed for the food.
Our local surf instructor recommended Zulas for the smmothies so we went there and we stayed for lunch and were very pleased with the food and the service. The owner waited on us, he is a real nice guy with a big smile and great approach to his work.
I liked the Green Smoothie the best, try it and see what you think. The kids liked the Lemon Smoothie which is also excellent but the one with the addition of mint is the best, it's like a Mojito without the Rum, bring your own Rum and try it.
All the food was excellent, a great place for lunch.
