I liked lalibela overall because I like Ethiopian cuisine, but it wasn't my favorite experience. The service and environment isn't as good or charming as at habesha in Kigali, and the injera is good but also not the best I've had. If you aren't an...More

I ate here 3-4 times and always enjoyed it. Outdoor seating is comfortable. My first introduction to ethiopian food - and loved it.

I have eaten at many Ethiopian restaurant, but food at this was not so great!! I found this quite dark which reflected in the quality of food which they serve.

I had never had Ethiopian food and it was great. Very different and the presentation fun! We tried a family style platter that that afforded us the opportunity to try many dishes.

This was my second experience going to an Ethiopian restaurant and after the first being amazing I didn't think it could be topped, but it was. Great value, swift service and a nice outdoor setting to sit and eat. Been meaning to go back!

I went to Lalibela twice in my 6-day stay in Rwanda, and it was incredible both times. The vegetarian platter is a good value at 6000 francs, as it's large enough for two people. The service was also good and the staff are friendly.

This restaurant was close to our stay in Kigali. The staff was friendly and advised a mixed plate with the ethiopian dishes. Eating from one plate with your fingers, is funny, but what really matters is the taste of the food. There were spicy dishes...More

We had an early dinner at Lalibela and it was as good as any of the Ethiopian food we had in Addis or Lalibela. The food was spicy and delicious. We got way more than we needed but it was all good service was excellent....More

We ate from the buffet which had a wide selection of options, all of which we really enjoyed! Plenty of vegetarian options as well. Nice atmosphere and friendly staff. Only issue (and not entirely unexpected) was that when we arrived we were told we would...More
