Le Roi Falafel

Le Roi Falafel enjoys a quiet location near Place Bellecour, where it serves healthy Middle Eastern treats in a friendly atmosphere. A chalkboard menu draws up the day's special, and each falafel comes with a choice of meat, a tabbouleh salad, chickpea puree and grape leaves all deliciously filled in a warm pita bread. A shawarma plate is available as well, as is a mezze platter for sharing. Try the Cigar Cheese appetizers and the meat-laden sandwiches that come with an exotic Lebanese twist. Finish off with a traditional baklava.
