Nice little place for a quick lunch when touring Bethlehem. Quick and friendly service, tasty falafel and other Eastern Mediterranean fare. The restaurant itself has very interesting architecture. Definitely worth a quick stop.

The best falafel in town. The most courteous and friendliest staff. Two great locations in the centre of town. Every Christmas season, I visit Afteem several times and the food and service is always exceptionally good.

Yes it is true that they made the best falafels. I didn't quite like falafels before I tried the ones made by Afteem, then it became my regular visited place during my stay in Bethlehem. Everything there is quite cheap as well.

Out of a group of 10, we had the shawarma plate and lamb plate and really enjoyed them. The falafels were excellent. We had one missing dish but did not get charged for it and had such an abundance of food already it wasn't much...missed. The service and atmosphere was very warm and friendly.More

Superb food with the falafel the best around. Just off main square but well worth seeking out. Definitely will return if back in Bethlehem

I think it lived up to the expectation. Great Hummus and falafel. Everything fresh and reasonably priced. Conveniently located near the Church of the Nativity.

Our guide took us here but it was not a tourist trap at all. We see locals and travellers alike enjoying themselves and we understood why upon our first bite. Best Falafel ever! We also go the lamb meat and it was very delicious as...well. Drink it down with some Mint Lemonade and it was the perfect meal.More

I discovered the restaurant 4 years ago and this 2019/20 when I returned to Bethlehem went directly to Afteem and had lunch there like 4 days in a row.
