This is a fast food place outside Mega. The homemade cucumber and mint juice was outstanding. The falafel was dry and overcooked and the tzatziki sauce was watery. The toppings were fresh and crispy and the tortilla/pita was fine. The hummus was good, but scanty. It was not worth the $10 CDN price. My husband got a Chinese take-out next... More

I ordered the hummus with pita and a beef shawarma. The hummus had no flavor. It looked good however it had no flavor. It was almost like eating textured water. The pita triangles that accompanied it were hard and stale tasting. I threw both in the garbage. The shawarma tasted ok. Not good, just ok. The ingredients seemed fresh enough... More

Inside the MEGA shopping complex and a short walk from our resort. We had the Falafel combination platter and Shawarma Chicken (Pollo). It was served with a good quantity of salad, hummus and babaganoush, spicy sauce, yogurt sauce. Enjoyed it! Great option for vegetarians & healthy too.

I am from the Middle East and the food was really good. We all enjoyed the variety of food. Also, the presentation of the food was creative. On top of all that the service was awesome, very kind, respectful and efficient people. If we got to go back to Cabos, we sure will go again to this restaurant.

Small restaurant, clean, nice decor. Food was good and tasty although not authentic Arabic food. Falafel tasted like they were from a box, but were well prepared. Hummus and grape leaves lacked seasoning. Service was good

I am a vegetarian eater and very picky about the food I eat. I search for fresh ingredients, portion size, value and cleanliness from the establishment I want to eat at. Al Falafel exceeds all my requirements from a restaurant. Everything is made fresh from ingredients and not pre made sitting in containers waiting for a customer. Don't be fooled... More

Delicious, freshly prepared, well served falafel and very nice staff that will serve you with a smile, specially Nancy. Prices are very reasonable (at $6 usd per falafel sandwich) and they have a great variety of meals, fresh water and desserts to offer, all complemented with a great atmosphere. Highly recommended.

This review is somewhat biased because the only business I would ever think of starting in San Jose del Cabo is a Greek restaurant, and she did it and does it wonderfully. This is her dream business, and I can see that, because I share her dream. I went on a Friday afternoon around 2PM for a falafel sandwich. There... More
