Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Kept seeing Facebook advertisements about this place and never really get up this road much but had to head to San Isidro so figured I’d make a stop! Glad I did! Javin was a nice server and gave us falafel samples when we sat. DELICIOUS!...And of course we had to have one! The daily special was fresh fish and chips. It was great! Lite and flaky and so fresh! Delicious mahi with homemade tartar sauce and a daily special sauce. Today was a Pakistani seasoning with mango and mayo! So good! And we had to try the chocolate soufflé I heard about! Incredible! I’ll be back to try more soon! It’s worth the ride ! Thanks for a great meal!More

We rented a house in Platanillo and were looking for some food options, when my husband announced we were going for Israeli food. Who knew we would find falafel and other Israeli foods here in a small town in Costa Rica? As an Israeli, my...husband always longs for his native foods. We have eaten twice at Amor and even brought some new found travel friends who enjoyed their meal immensely We have eaten the falafel, schnitzel, chumus, and enjoyed them a lot.More

We stopped by Amor Mediterraneo for a small bite to eat on our way home from a waterfall hike. The falafel balls and vegan sambusak were insanely delicious, in addition to the variety of sauces; beet tahini, mango, and a green salsa picante.More

After being "stuck" in costa rica for 4 months, I can say with confidence that Amor mediterraneo is my personal favorite. We had the chance to try the WHOLE menu, multiple times, and we thank god (and Ji) we did! Every dish is thought and...planned to give you a whole experience in every bite. I can't describe all of the options, but I will choose some of my personal favorites: First of all the SPECIALS - that keep your taste buds alert at all times for new flavors. either with sausage, chicken, fish or others flavors from all over the mediterranean region. The HUMMUS- OMG, what a hummus! takes me back home, and gives a proper fight on being one of (if not the) best i've tried. it comes in few varieties, all are amaizing, while I personally prefer the one with shawarma, or any special variety that comes on it. or sometimes even just a bite of hummus to ease the craving. The CEVICHE- a mediterranean version of a well known dish that always suprises all those who see it. when you see the plate you can't ignore the mountain of goodness in front of you, and every time we would hear someone asking "is that the ceviche?!". a FRESH and DELISCIOUS pleasure on a plate. Great for the times in which you are hungry, but want to stay on the light and fresh sensation in your belly. The SCHNITZEL- Another personal favorite! an amaizing satisfying dish of fried chicken breast, with which you can never go wrong! comes on a plate or in a pita. just YUM. The SAMBUSAK - A mediterranean empanada, for when you want an extra something, or just want to go rogue and eat all of them because they are so good (took 4 of them for the flight back home). Comes in 2 varieties, one with meat and one with lentiles and shitaki mushrooms, both absolutley amaizing. FRENCH FRIES- something that looks trivial, but is not. They make the best french fries I ever tasted. I never thought I would reccomend the french fries anywhere, but there is a first time for everything! Try them! FALAFEL- One of Amor's "trademarks" is their falafel. it is just something in the mixture, the oil temperture, the ingridients or just simply the love they put in, that make their falafel, by far, the best falafel I have ever tried. Take it in a pita, on the hummus or just some balls on the side. In all serving forms, just take them. MALABI- the perfect way to end a mediterranean meal is with a mediterranean dessert. Sweet, fresh and just light enough to not make you regret that extra bite you already took 10 bites ago, when you were already full. We thank the staff and all of restaurat's frequent flyers that became our family. We love you all so much. And in short - JUST GO EAT AT AMOR MEDITERRANEO.More

Unique, flavorful and authentic foods here. We were so happy to have found it after our trip to a local waterfall. I had the Sabich which was awesome, so very flavorful and filled with so many goodies. My husband had the schnitzel sandwich, which he...raved about. Extremely friendly restauranteurs, outstanding experience. If we found it earlier in our trip, we could have certainly frequented it. Also, the owner brought over some falafel, probably the best I have ever had.More

Randomly stopped at this small restaurant on the side of the road, and was not sorry. I had a wonderful sabich and the best falafel I’ve ever eaten! Worth a trip by itself without waiting to have to go up the mountain for something else

10/10 for sure. And even more! We came as a couple to eat some home made mediterranian food and we could not pick a better place. The place has a warm home-like atmosphere, with a great team. The service was always accompanied with a smile...and caring for our satisfaction. All the food is freshly made with love (and we could truly feel the love!). The shawarma is amazing, the Moroccan style fish is delicious, and the malaby gave the meal a great sweet and fresh closure. The hummus was so good I didn't even have the time to take a picture! There are a lot more delicious plates to try, and we will surly try them. And all of that in surprisingly great prices! We'll come back for sure. Every time we return to the beautiful Costa Rica! And for the team of Amor Mediterraneo, if you are reading this review. Thank you for making our day! See you again soon!More
