A place with good tasty food. Prices are a bit high and the serving size isn't large but the food, service and atmosphere is great.

The ambiance was wonderful , last but not least, every meal I feasted upon was amazing. Much detail, effort and love put into the meals. My fav was the Grouper. Falafel has my repeated... More

The falafel was ok. However the beef kebab was very tough. Not a very good quality meat used. The place is beautiful; nice little courtyard. They also give a good spicy sauce for the table.

Great Mediterranean food. Would definitely eat here again. It looks like its indoor but then its a patio and your eating under the stars at night. Hummus was delicious.

Very reasonably priced Arabic restaurant in Zona Colonial with outside eating, friendly staff and plenty of on-going Arabic music from speakers. Suggest kabob de res.

When the food came it was not as tasty as we expected and they didn't have any of the typical sauces and condiments that... More

I've visited Falafel about 5 times now and do love some things on the menu... others, have something to be desired. Mini falafel: yes, chicken shawarma: yes, hummus: no, baklava: no no.
