Went here for dinner one night and it was AMAZING! My boyfriend said this was one of his favorite dinners from our month-long trip to Costa Rica! All of the food was fantastic - we had the chicken shawarma plate and the chicken kebabs. Hummus...and pita is a must get! The whole atmosphere was amazing - surf videos playing, beautiful string lights, some music. Service was fantastic - spoke both Spanish and English.More

So good. I would eat every meal here if I could. Tried most things on the menu. Yum. Hungry just writing this. Brought all of our guests here when they visited us in ST. The frozen mojito is really good. So is the Schnitzel and...the hummus. Jalapeno poppers are a great starter. I also love the surf footage on repeat on the big screen. great food, great vibes. Enjoy!More

We ordered a falafel plate and a falafel pita. The food didn't have any flavour. No salt, no garlic, nothing. Also the coctails were really bad. Complete waste of money.

We had some fantastic hummus/falafel with pita. The fruit drinks are exceptionally large. Super friendly and helpful personal. If you wish Israeli music, the owners are happy to put it on.

I can't be in Santa Teresa and not eat at Zulas. The smoothies are huge and fresh, the food is delicious. I ordered the Banana Coconut Pineapple smoothie- oh my! It was the best. Hummus appetizer was perfect. PItas - good portions! Thanks for a...great dinner, Zulas!More

Delicious falafel, right in the heart of Santa Teresa. The portions were great and satisfied my wife and I (very hungry travelers). The pricing was very fair, and the quality was 10/10. Of all the different falafel options, you have to try Zula's!
