Great food. We stayed in the tree house lodge across the road and were delighted to find this place so close. We had the open table for two with some extras, and it was all great, especially the carrot salad and the aubergine. And we're glad we managed to stuff down the pecans and ice cream as well. Highly recommended!

We stopped here for a late lunch and had the entire place to ourselves. Nice patio dining area. We shared the chicken shwarma plate and "open table for two" plate amongst the 4 of us. The pita are delicious, unlike any I've had in the states. The mint lemonade was really refreshing. We love Costa Rican food, but this was... More

We had a late lunch here, and after both kids spilling their drinks and we weren't kicked out, we enjoyed a wonderful meal. The mint lemonade and falafel pita were tops. I'm sure we'll back! My only deduction was for the heft of the pita bread...delicious but too filling for the hot weather. But what do I know?!

Best pitas ever. We bought extra and threw them o the grill the next night to have with fish and shrimps. So very tasty. Delish hummus, tabbouleh and falafel. Nice break from Caribbean beans, rice and fish. Nice staff. Service was fast enough, hey you're in Costa Rica, what's the rush? relax and have a drink.

Boy does our family love to eat! I mean I am talking our son has been on Food Network level of eating. Not that our trip to Costa Rica was intended to be a gourmet adventure but honestly this restaurant was the best surprise over the 10 days that we were here. . You eat out on the deck and... More

The owner and staff were very nice but the service was quite slow and the food was average at best. The chicken dish was heavily seasoned with cinnamon. The cucumber salad was the best thing on the falafel plates.

Thank Whitnah
