Our waitress has been with Falafel over 3 years and your unfortunate incident was a first. Please give her and us the benefit of doubt that it was an honest mistake.

Really tasty dishes, we tried the falafel, which was exquisite. The restaurant was a happy surprise, as you don’t often meet a falafel restaurant in a greek island, let alone a great one. The fresh lemon juice we ordered was one of the best we...have ever tasted. Well done!More

Up a lane with stairs, but still quite central, and with a very original set up, is the snack bar - restaurant 'Falafel'. There are in fact some middle eastern specialities available, but also Thai and Greek, as well as original creations, not seen elsewhere....Who has ever had 'Apaki' (smoked pork from Crete) with North African Couscous? I got to know it here and it was quite good. My wife ordered 'Pad Thai' and when she gave me to try I was surprised by all that cinnamon in it, something I don't remember from Thailand. All in all I came here three times, once more with my wife, once alone. Naturally we also had to try 'Falafel', the Arab chickpea balls, that gave the place its name. For dessert we were offered a complimentary xynomezythra-yoghurt with breadcrumbs at the bottom and sour cherries on top. Wonderful. When alone I had an 'Ancient Greek Salad' (Archaioelliniki), which I quite liked, although Pericles or Aristoteles would have been surprised by the ingredients. Of all that was in it they would have known Spring Onions, Bean Sprouts, Dill and Honey, even Ginger, imported on the spice route from Asia already then. What they wouldn't have known were Lemons, which only came to Europe in Roman times, nor naturally Quinoa and Peppers from the Americas. That the 'Falafel' became our favourite eating place in Aegiali has a lot to do with the friendly owner Panajotis from Katerini in Macedonia, who is very present at the restaurant, although he had the help of a very efficient young Greek waitress. We also liked the jazzy background music.More

Cute place. Very organic. Really interesting menu. On the top of some steps a little hidden. Enjoyed the falafel and tabouli. They had some exotic dishes as well.

I have always wondered why truly small restaurants don’t go for a communal table. Falafel (unfortunate name, makes one think of a middle-eastern fast food shack) has had this idea, and the place is a little gem. Let’s be honest, greek food, as presented in...most restaurants in tourist spots, is less than inspiring. Bland seasoning and for some reason the meat cuts seem done using a chainsaw. Falafel caters to those of us who need a break, and does a lovely fusion spin on local ingredients with subtle references to world cuisine. Go, leave your iPhone at the hotel, talk to people and enjoy a great restaurant.More

Visited here in September 2019 on the recommendation of the AirBnB host. It is tucked away a bit from the main harour front but well worth seeking out. This was the most sophisticated cuisine I encountered on the island and yet not particularly any higher...in price. The salads are absolutely amazing and wine is served in nice delicate caraffs rather than the more typical battered metal jugs you see elsewhere. With very friendly staff and a choice of sunny tables or sheltered shady areas on the veranda this is a little place you can retreat for a tranquil and quite meal of excellent quality. The menu is varied and fuses modern cuisine with eastern and Greek influences. Great for solo travellers, couples or families. Will definitely go back again.More

A rare combination of what makes an evening and a dinner unforgettable. Greek inspired food with a lot of creativity. Best music in a long time, that allows you to talk, kindness and food with superior ingredients, what else?

Burgers and sausage were very tasty and definitely recommend them, but traditional lahmacun not what I was expecting and knew, as you could barely find any minced meat on it!!! So better avoid this plate.

We had a great time at Falafel. The dishes are original and we spent hours on the terrace, we didn't want to leave ! Great place for vegetarian/vegan food.
