The falafel is fantastic. Try the fried pita chips as well. It is just wonderful. Do not miss it in your visit to old city. Just a few steps from it.

Easy access with great tasting falafel. Friendly service, and an opportunity for a sample. For a quick meal close to the artist's quarter and famous tourist sites, I highly recommend..

Some people say it is the best felafel in Tzfat, and maybe in Israel. It is located in a quaint square in the center of the Old City of Tzfat, the most picturesque city in Israel.

Enjoyed the Pita bread with Brinjal gravy, and had Falafel & potato fingers with a drink. Food was good. Especially the brinjal preparation, which was fried with tomatoes tasted almost like an Indian dish. But the only downside was that it was costly. It amounted 47 NIS.

One can't expect to get medical advice from an artist, you must get advice from the maven of that field. As a Falafel Maven and I can without a doubt attest to the fact this place hands down sells the tastiest falafel known to man. Enjoy!

This small falafel shop is great you sit outside under an awning and eat wonderful falafel with what ever you want inside. Great after walking around Tzafat in the morning. Service is wonderful the man who owns it practically waits on you giving you olives and bottles of sauce. Great Experience Best Falafel i have had.

This is a very nice and friendly place for falafel. The falafel is gluten free and just great. The owner and staff are very nice and accommodating. To sit here and contemplate and look at the people going by makes this a place not to miss when you're on these quarters.

Best FalafelI had on my trip to Isreal. The fries and the falafel were fried right infront of me to perfection. Tasted great and was for a great price. If in Tsfat, or the area, a must visit.

Thank BigAlNj
