Vibrant and bulk food- well worth a visit!

Buzzing and vibrant with lots of people, this is in the heart of the Jewish community in Paris. Bulk food- ie massive portions and decent size chips, a great pig out spot if hungry after a long walk around Paris. Would recommend the meatball version- very tasty- the vegetarian option is a bit dry... read more

The Marais is a Jewish neighborhood so there are other fallafel places all around this place. But, this one was incredible. We've eaten fallafel in Israel and this place is the best that we've ever had. There are two parts to this restaurant, the take out at the front but enter the front door if you want to sit down....

Total mayhem but that's because the food is so good. Eating in is a real experience, but like many others, I would recommend getting take out. The falafels are the best I have had anywhere and I have to pay a visit whenever I am an Paris. Fat, well stuffed pittas with lots of delicious chickpea nuggets, salad and sauces.... More

We went on a recommendation. I agree the falafel is the best I've had outside of Israel and some NY falafel places. The takeout window was incredibly busy but I got a able in less than 5 minutes. The falafel was terrific. The wait staff are polite and quick. Prices are good. If we'd had a chance I would have... More

Stayed in St Paul, chanced upon the queues outside this place and gave it a whirl. Best felafels I've tasted. Quick service, good price. Eat here now.

We were not disappointed with our first visit to this famous falafel shop. We chose to eat them on the hoof. The soft pitta was stuffed with salad as well as a good portion of falafels. A really good lunch, with efficient service.

The falafel here is excellent - one of the best I've had outside of Israel. Prices are reasonable by Paris standards, though not as cheap as some of the crepe places in the Latin Quarter. You can eat in or order to go - I suggest taking away and eating in the street nearby while you watch the world walk... More

It's a fun experience in itself queing and waiting for your fallafel at the take-out. The other fallafel shops around roll their eyes at the tourists waiting in line here instead of getting food instantly at the other shops. The restaurant has an effective system with staff members taking your orders while queing, to save time at the food counter.... More

Staying in Le Marais

Neighborhood Profile
Le Marais
The Marais is a winding maze of multi-faceted streets that beg to be explored. It bursts with small boutiques, historic buildings, cozy traditional restaurants, and hidden parks. Around each corner, you'll come across little gems of architecture spanning the centuries, from understated medieval towers to classical libraries and 17th century splendor. This neighborhood unites a rich mix of people of all ages, but it's best known for the gay scene mostly in the south and the Jewish community around Rue des Rosiers.
