I can confirm All good opinions about Afteem, clean, easy to find, quick service and excellent food. It was also important for me that Visa and Master Card are accepted there. Go for different starters with pita bread and it will be enough food - no meed to order the main dish. BTW - please don't use local ATMs in... More

Our group enjoyed a wonderful lunch at Afteem before we toured the Church of Nativity, just across the square. Excellent food, beautiful historic building, friendly and helpful service. Can't wait to visit again.

We stumbled upon Afteem after visiting the Church of the Nativity. It took a while to get the food, because it was very busy, but once it arrived we very much enjoyed it.

Recomended by local friends, great food att a good price! Make sure not to miss out on falafel and humus, why not throw in a local Taybeh-beer.

We stopped for a quick traditional breakfast. Was just what we needed. The location in the Souks below the Manger square.

Placed in front of the Nativity Church, this is the most convenient, cheapest and best light meal restaurant in Bethlehem. Don't waste your money at the other poor restaurants.

I've been there few times already, all with friends from abroad, and they enjoy the place and the food very much. The Falafel is the best in the area, and the other salads (Hummus, Musabaha) are also wonderful, and don't forget to drink the lemonade with mint mix, especially in a hot summer day.

For long time this place proved to be the best and made me not think of any other place to recommend to Bethlehem visitors. If you are a first time visitor ask for recommended dishes of hummus other than the plane one!
