The Falafel Bar is one that should be on your must-do list if you like authentic falafel and hummus. We enjoyed the lovely family that own and operate this restaurant, and the food was delicious.

We have eaten in many Mediterranean restaurants around the world, and the Falafel Bar is right up there in our estimation. The falafels are simply the best. The humus stands out, too. The atmosphere is inviting -we ate on the porch - and the staff pleasant.

Probably the best falafel I've ever had! Husband had the beef Kebob which was also delicious. Amazing hummus. This gem was worth seeking out in Tamarindo.

We all tried something different and everything was absolutely delicious-cooked to perfection. Even the pita bread was like nothing I have ever had! We all walked away and could not believe how amazing our meal was. Thank you... More

The pita hummus plates are delicious. Soft warm pitta pockets filled with yummy hummus and your choice of falafel, lamb etc. My son chose the lamb kebab and... More

On a Sunday night my son and I went there for dinner. We were promptly seated and asked for our cocktail choices. My son had a rum and coke and I had a hibiscus vodka lemonade.

We stopped at Falafel Bar for dinner. Everything we ordered was delicious and fresh. Falafel was simply best I ever tasted. This was better falafel than any I tasted when traveling in the Middle East
