This is one of our favorite restaurants in puerto viejo area. The best chicken shawarma I've ever had. And the open table for 2 is so delicious and healthy, you can't go wrong.

Our family of 6 stayed near Puerto Viejo for 5 days and we ate here 3 times!! The food is amazing! We ordered lamb kebabs, chicken shawarma, hummus, salad sampler, falafel, ice cream with candied pecans....everything was delicious! The owner is definitely a fun character and the service was great! We loved talking to the woman who served our table.... More

To start, we have ordered pipa to drink...the chef went in the garden, cut the coconut from the tree, quickly opened them and poor the liquid in our glasses...beautiful and refreshing! We also tasted lemonade with mint...fantastic! The food was... More

Really really good food. Ordered the hummus, falafel pita, and the shwarma - all amazing. Portions were epic. Seriously impressed, and definitely worth the price. Also, owner was super friendly and very attentive, and restaurant and facilities were clean.

wow...! more or less had a mystical experience here last night with Helon (please forgive me if i've spelled this incorrectly- i'm only a lousy American). anyways, the chicken shawarma was addiction-inducing and we had beers with the owner, Helon, who is an absolutely admiral man- a master of cuisine and a bit of a cosmic-mastermind. a nice, cool guy...

As a vegetarian it's very difficult to find really good food in the area. Once you take pizza out of the mix there isn't much left. We stumbled upon this place and have become addicted to the falafal in pita. So good! The combo of sauerkraut tomatoes, onions and what ever sauce they put on it is out of this... More

ate here twice during our recent stay in Punta Uva, Costa Rica, the owner was very welcoming, amusing and was the epitome of the relaxed nature of the area. The food was sensational, fresh, clean, and tasty.

This restaurant was recommended to us and I'm glad it was otherwise we probably wouldn't have even seen it. We are a group of 4 and all of us thoroughly enjoyed our food. I had the shawarma plate and it was one of the best meals I've had in Costa Rica so far.
