Not bad, nicely cooked, nice service but just pretty average food for what we were hoping would be an interesting respite from rice, beans and patacones. It was fine.

Super friendly staff speaks English. Lots of windows on one end and open to the street at the other end. Wanted to love this place, free WIFI, lots of yummy menu items. We were told that they make their own bread, but the pita bread sandwich I ordered came with hard, stale pita. I ate inside the pita and left the bread. The other thing we ordered was good, no issues with it.

We had three times dinner at this place because we liked it very much! It’s the best option in Santa Elena.
We had shawarma, cheviche, fish and chips, hummus and falafel! The food is very tasty and the shakes are amazing. We have travelled all around Costa Rica this summer and to us this place serves the best food above all. The waiter Andres has a very friendly attitude towards the customers. The price matches the quality of the food. Definitely we’ d like to come back next year.

ישראלים יקרים, אכלנו בראנץ מדהים של שקשוקה, חציל בטחינה וסלט ירקות יווני מהמם! כל כך נהנו מהאווירה והמקום. העוגיות זה מאסט. הבעלים של המקום ישראלי משלנו בחור מקסים שעזר לנו מעל ומעבר בקוסטה ריקה.
Hello everyone! This is definitely the best place for breakfast in your vacation. You can enjoy Israeli and Greek food and a lot of other selections. We really enjoyed everything. The cookies are definitely a must. ♥️♥️♥️♥️
By the way, Don’t afraid to taste new things
