Crispy moist falafel, very fresh bread! - Edit

The bread was really really fresh. The woman I met who worked there spoke very good English. Nice, clean cozy restaurant. The falafel and hummus were good, and did I mention the bread was really really fresh?

Falafel plate was 8.5 BAM. Nice deal!

cant go wrong here at all - Edit

Ate twice here and it was really good. Two levels of seating, different kinds of humus, salads and what is the most important within the balkan region: no smoking inside

Cons: the table was not big enough for my dishes :-)

Wonderful food and service - Edit

I ate here four days and tried various items including Falafel Meal, Falafel sandwich, Eggplant Salad, Yogurt, and Zucchini. Zucchini was kind of tasteless and insipid but everything else is wonderful - especially eggplant salad! The serving ladies were very gracious and welcoming - a must visit!

Pros: Vegan, Wonderful food, Center of town

Cons: None

Bad disappointment with catering - Edit

I very rarely write negative reviews, but here I must: while this place makes good food, the rest is a real disaster. Recently I complained on Facebook about the super-sluggish service they provide at the restaurant. Now I had a HORRIFIC PERSONAL EXPERIENCE a few days ago, trying to use their advertised professional catering  service.

We made a clear agreement with the manager on the supply of food to a soirée I was giving. They BROKE ALL ASPECTS OF THE AGREEMENT: the delivery was late, the agreed maximum price exceeded and, worst of all, on the delivery day they unilaterally changed the way of delivery, effectively ruining the course of the soirée (they delivered in dozens of ugly plastic boxes that I myself needed to place around after cutting all their lids, instead of using big plates for guests to simply serve themselves, as was clearly agreed).

In short, extremely disappointing and unprofessional at best, deliberate cheating on customers at worst. Hence my STRONG DISCOURAGEMENT to use the services of Falafel Restaurant in Sarajevo. Jan

Pros: Good food, Good location

Cons: Very sluggish service in the restaurant, They never have some items listed on their menu, Horrific experience with catering service (see rev

happy to find something vegan in town - Edit

It was good and not too expensive. I was glad to find a place with vegan options. Not a big meal but not too expensive. If you're hungry, you'll have to take several different salads, which can add up. Hummus and falafel were ok, bread was good.

Falafel and hummus heaven! - Edit

I really thought falafel and hummus would be easier to find in Bosnia but I was mistaken.. so I was super happy to find this place with a almost completely vegan menu! (Except for the yoghurt) I had falafel meal and it was really good. My friend had falafel tortilla meal, both with french fries.

The restaurant was a bit fast food kind of like and with a few tables, all looking very Fresh. The staff could have been more enthusiastic though.

Pros: Almost completely vegan menu , Prices, Location

Cons: Staff

Lovely little place - Edit

In a city where meat is king, this is a great little find. The place is in the old town and easy to find. The menu is all about falafel (and the accompanying sides) , but it's all very tasty. Service is quick, if a bit surly. Overall, I do recommend it.

Tasty, well-presented and affordable - Edit

Falafel is a great little eatery off the main pedestrian street, Bascarsija. It is intimate and inviting. We have been there summer and winter and have always had good luck with all of the dishes. They are well-flavored and you get a lot for the money. Our international friends also have enjoyed the food.

Pros: Great food, Generous portions, Budget prices

Cons: Sometimes items on menu not available

Great location, mediocre food - Edit

Not a bad place to eat, but nothing memorable either. I had hummus with pita and tabouleh and it tasted nice, just as you would expect. The interior design is absolutely unbelievable. It is one of the very few places where you can get normal vegan food, so worth a visit if you are staying in Sarajevo.

Pros: normal good food, price, location

Very nice and lovely - Edit

I am very happy I found this place by coincidence. We were walking the streets of the old town and saw the restaurant and even though it was past their working time the owner (I guess) was very lovely and I was able to get food. So I went again a few days later with a friend who is a convinced meat eater and she fell in love with falafel (thats a win I guess).

Pros: very friendly staff, nice Falafel, great menu

Cons: kind of hard to find, interior is not the cutest

cheap tasty and in the heart of old town - Edit

This place was our life saviour in Sarajevo as a vegan and vegetarian couple. Luckly we went there with a local friend and we didn't get lost. Falafel was OK but not so tasty (a bit dry and overcooked) hummus was delicious! I had the plate option and a eggplant salad to share that we really loved. Everything served promptly so my boyfriend and me went back the next day for lunch as well :)

Pros: unic option if you're veggy, tasty, cheap

Cons: falafel was a bit oveecooked

fresh, cheap and cheerful! - Edit

Fresh and quality food served promptly with a smile. Maybe a lack of options as almost everything contains falafel, though the clue is in the title I suppose.

Take away possible.


Updated from previous review on 2016-08-27

Pros: Fresh, Quick, Friendly

Cons: lack of options, Could offer a non-dairy milk option with smoothies

Colorful place for a break - Edit

A small place downstairs, few tables outside and more upstairs (great with our 2 years old child). Falafel were OK but not so tasty (a bit dry and overcooked) and it smell unfortunatly too the frying ! But the humus with pines nuts was excellent ! Cheap and a good alternative for vegetarians.
Good for a quick snack.

Falafel Obrok Veliki - Edit

I had the small plate with salad and fries that come with the falafel and had a Sprite on the side which came to 10,00 Euro. There is little seating down stairs but more to seat up stairs.

The location is in the heart of the old town district and down an ally way so you might miss it if you don't have GPS.

Pros: Friendly staff, Åccepts credit cards

tasty, talkative and cheap - Edit

Ordered the (small) falafel sandwich as it was 3km, about £1.25. Expected a slice of bread with a bit of falafel. Instead I got a MASSIVE bap, filled with Moroccan/Med delights. Lots of talking, interested in veganism, so altogether a great eatery... Went back in the morning for breakfast as well!
