My husband and I found this place on trip advisor and decided to check it out. It was ok. The gentleman who was the cook/server was friendly and efficient. The food for the value was good. Everything was fresh. Parking was difficult for anyone bringing a car because of the downtown location, but that's to be expected for this time... More

Tiny restaurant with friendly staff and fans creating a welcome breeze. The pita was soft, light and fluffy and the falafel delicious. Not oily at all with a slight crunch as they give into soft goodness. I found the pita overall needed the addition of sauces to give it a flavour and moisture boost. The only suggestion I would make... More

It's a tiny hole in the wall place on the south side of Calle 4, with a happy and genuine ambience. Super fresh ingredients. The falafel balls are crisp and hot, the pitas are soft and fresh. The Israeli salad is nice, but not amazing. Homemade lemonade was a bit weak and watery. But all that is forgiven in light... More

Finding falafel in playa del Carmen and then seeing its a top 10 on trip advisor means you have to go! The menu is small but everything is delicious and fresh! Small operation and pretty small dining area. Very worth it!

I saw many falafel place in central america but never tried it until entered this place. But I got regrets after I had "falafel Plate" here. I'm not vegetarian but that doesn't matter, good meal is good meal. I want you just try it!
