Having spent time in the Horn of Africa, we love to enjoy an evening at La Gazelle d'Or where one immediately gets into the atmosphere of a restaurant in Addis Ababa. The food is excellent, wonderfully spiced and well presented injeras, with tender lamb, beef and chicken. The welcoming and friendly service and the background Ethiopian music add to the... More

Try this restaurant if you want truly authentic Ethiopian cuisine. The injera and wot, which is my touchstone in an Ethiopian meal, were amazing. The lentils, lamb tibs and beef were first class. Don't expect poshness but try this place, preferably in a group of four, if you want to enjoy the full range of the platter. The coffee ,... More

This restaurant is a good example of - dont judge a restaurant by its outside looks and location. Situated a short walk from the main trainstation in a diverse area of Geneva the first impression was somewhat "okayyyy" what will we be expecting especially as the first thing you see is the Pizzaria part of the restaurant. Well once through... More

Food was very tasty. Somewhat new for me which made it even better. There was a huge group of maybe 19 people. We shared the big baskets between 4. There was plenty of food to go around. Plentt of things to try. The communal basket of food was great fun with a group of friends.

leave the streets of Geneva and you walk into a village like atmosphere that reminds you of an Ethiopian/Eritrean village. The family run restaurant serves excellent Ethiopian Ingera served with lentils and vegetables with different choices of meats. a nice place for relaxation and enjoying great food.

Totally unexpected decor and ambiance inside the restaurant. The food is good, consistent and always served with great attitude and conviviality. The pizza was better in the past but I'm sure it will pick up again.

You don’t expect it. From the outside it looks just like any other regular restaurant in the area. When you walk in passed the giant aquariums, you find yourself on an evening stroll in an African village. Under each “hut” are low raffia woven tables surrounded by chairs and benches. Those raffia tables soon turn into the center of activity,... More

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. I remember having a great time there as a kid as each table has it's own "hut". The food is very good and the atmosphere nice.
