My sister and I returned to this quirky falafel joint several times because of the amazing hand made falafel and lemonade they serve. I recommend the Falafel burrito and to experiment with sauces. Great for vegetarians and meat eaters, also great on the pocket!

Excelent Food. The sandwiches are amazing and they have delicious types of lemonade and sauces. Every time we travel to Playa, Chic Pea is our first choice.

We had dinner here. We got 6 plates and some falafel. Plates are big enough to share. There is also a good choice of lemonade. We had the lemon-cucumber-basil. It was very refreshing and unsweetened, that I prefer. Price are good.

I know what a good falafel is. Surely this wasn't one. This falafel shouldn't even be served. Over priced, over cooked. Service was ok. The food was freshly made and hot. But sadly it was really bad falafel.

The falafel is amazing. Have had the 'original' version and also the version with no bread (last item on the menu). Can't think of its name but it was absolutely delicious. The range of sauces they offer you each time you dine there is fantastic...More

Vegetarian restaurant that is also vegan friendly. A selection of inventive sandwiches made with falafel. I went with an original which was more like a typical falafel wrap & was not disappointed. Don't miss the special lemonades.
