The people who work here are very nice but the food is just okay. I wish the grape leaves had meat in them.

The falafels were amazing! I got the falafel and was very worth it! We got 10% off flyers on the beach. So that was nice. My only criticism is that the baklava wasn't very good.More

We stopped here for breakfast/lunch and had a great meal! Half our party opted for breakfast. They reported the pancakes were fluffy and flavorful. The other half had shwarma Mediterranean plates. Everything was fresh and well seasoned. The pita was the star of the table....More

I agree with several other reviews...the falafels were amazing. The beets, carrots and slaw were fresh and naturally sweet. Would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for something different in CR.

Falafel Place is exactly what the name applies. Hummus, salads, and other Middle Eastern salads make this a perfect choice for an inexpensive, simple meal.

This is seriously the best falafel ever. Smooth and creamy on the inside and crunchy on the outside. You must order the falafel, even if you want to order something else along with it. It is not to be missed. We also tried some chicken...More
