Delicious lunch, short walk from beach ! I was only able to eat half my wrap... because my three kids wanted the rest! ( and they can be picky!)

A friend treated me to lunch. We had the falafel burritos. Fresh, prepared after we ordered and were satisfying. Friendly staff. They were doing a good business at lunch the day we stopped by.

Saw this café en route to the beach from our hotel and wanted to stop by, so happy we did! I had the natural salad with extra falafel which was perfect, really vibrant salad and yummy falafel with home made pitta that i didn’t need...but had some of anyway! My ‘not hungry, just a juice for me’ boyfriend was so jealous we came back the next day for their falafel plate and it was incredible, just what your body needs after a marathon beach walk (7.5km apparently!!) Lovely cool, chilled surroundings, epic food, friendly staff - I can see why they get so busy!More

We came here for lunch with the kids and it was delicious! Very healthy and delicious. Most of us got the mixed chicken plate. My husband got the Samara sandwich and everyone loved their meals

Overall the food was good. I had the falafel platter. The hummus was definitely homemade, yummy but needed a little salt. It wasn't expensive but I thought it was pricey for the portion. It didn't even come with pita. I also got the chocolate banana...vegan muffin which was a nice treat. They only take cash and they don't give the right exchange rate but it wasn't too far off that I couldn't overlook it.More

We were just expecting some filler lunch from a wee stall in the middle of Samara. Wow, that was some falafel. Wish we'd discovered you earlier in the holiday!
