    Planet Hollywood: It was safe at least

    by yoji6365 Written Mar 5, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The place was at least pretty clean, and since I was sick from another local restaurant, this was the safest thing for me besides the pizza joint down the street.

    Favorite Dish: Double cheeseburger, fries and coke. It was pretty good considering where you are. Lots of foreigners there so it cant be too bad.

    Mer Rouge Restaurant: Cheap and pretty good

    by nekro Updated Oct 4, 2005

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Mostly used by eritrean and ethiopian refugees, so it is very cheap compering with other djiboutian restaurants.
    Usually 1 or 2 kind of food per day (spagetti and fresh fish) for 100-200 franks.

    It is a bit out of the city center (about 1 km), but the boat (in the way of Obock or Tadjoura) departs from here.

    If you have the money ...

    If you have lots of money on you, you can appearently get good, French-style food in upmarket restaurant catering to the expats.

    On the budget scale, you can still find decent street-food around town - but once again, they were infested with flies, making eating the food without flies difficult!

    Self-catering can be a good option.
    As usual with French colonies, fresh, crispy baguettes are widely sold, and are cheap.
    There are also expensive supermarkets selling Western stuff for the expats.

    Can't remember!: Delicious Yemeni fish

    by Flatfoot Updated Dec 5, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a tiny Yemeni-run restaurant on a backstreet in Djibouti city, not far from the French military hospital. I cannot remember its name (if it had one) but it serves the most delicious seafood.

    Favorite Dish: If you can find the restaurant, try the fish! They were cut in half lengthways, coated in some spicy mixture and slapped onto the walls of a tandoor-like oven to cook. Served with thin flat bread and honey.

  • Do not go in the expensive...

    Do not go in the expensive restaurants...the chinese one is 100% ketchup fully licenced!
    If you want a pizza go to Plein Air Hitel restaurant, but you'll have to pay 20$ for 1 (big) pizza!
    go to the open air restaurants of the center . The one called 'jus de fruits' is excellent.
    try to ask the cooker what you want the day before, he'll check for you.
    'Ougoul' restaurant in the center, is very good for fresh seafood, but a little always in Djibouti!
    You can go to 'Le national' in Secteur13 (well known),a yemenite restaurant, very good and not expensive!

    Favorite Dish: Crab, shrimps, fresh fish
