    Lodge Fasil Restaurant: Dinner at Effrem's place

    by egonwegh Updated Jun 2, 2014

    Stayed in town for just one night. During the day time, we visited the famous Royal Enclosure, the church and the bath (see intro). At nightfall, we dined at the outdoor restaurant adjacent to Lodge Fasil and had a chat with the host, Effrem. Apart from booking us into the Taye Hotel earlier that day, Effrem also arranged transport to Bahir Dar for us by minibus.

    Favorite Dish: We had beef goulash, fish goulash and a small quantity of tej, the local honey wine. Paid 250 birr. Very nice surroundings, authentic African atmosphere.

    Tana snack & cafe: Cheap and good

    by lotharscheer Written Apr 14, 2014

    Tana snack & cafe has quite good and cheap local food and pasta. A bit of a disadvantage if you want to eat is a flatscreen TV, whenever there is a european soccer game the place is packed.

    Favorite Dish: Ful with butter, a local breakfast, beans and bread, 15 Birr.

    Four Sisters: Four Sisters

    by egonwegh Updated Mar 17, 2014

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    5 November 2013. Inbetween two excursions, we had lunch in the form of a buffet at the Four Sisters restaurant in Gonder. As you may have guessed, it is indeed run by four sisters ... Great decoration and lively atmosphere inside. Also good terrace. We opted for a place outside since a large group of tourists had already taken temporary possession of the restaurant's interior.

    Favorite Dish: Buffet with rice, various vegetables, some meat and fruit. We paid 275 birr.

    four sister Restaurant: most beautiful restaurant in gondar

    by hanspeter_W. Written Nov 21, 2012

    So what did these four talented and hard-working sisters do when they decided to open a restaurant? They sat down and together designed the entire concept—a remarkably beautiful and atmospheric haven where they could share their ability to create fantastic food, community, and joy. The gifted architect they hired successfully turned their long-term dream into a heart-felt reality—one the Sisters know you will feel at home in.

    Favorite Dish: shish kebab....soup

    How many breads do we buy ?

    by sachara Updated Aug 8, 2012

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Because we liked the fresh bread, we bought 50 small breads for the picknick lunch on our way to Debark and the Simien mountains. We paid 2,5 eurocent for one small bread.

    At our departure time early morning the restaurant of our hotel was not open yet. So I decided to buy also two small breads for breakfast. I drunk a tea for 3,5 eurocent in a local bar opposite the minibus and taxistand. For 8,5 eurocent I had a nice and cheap breakfast. And a quick breakfast too, so I could also be easily in time for the early departure of our bus.

    Favorite Dish: The fresh bread, which was still warm.

    Fresh bread, early in the morning

    by sachara Updated Aug 8, 2012

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Before our departure from Gonder to Debark and the Simien Mountains, we visited the local bakery in the centre. When we arrived, they liked to show us, how they prepared the bread and we could have a look at the oven. We saw how they used a long metal board to shove the bread into the oven, to be baked.

    It was interesting to see it and we liked also the temperature in the room at this early cool morning.

    Favorite Dish: Very fresh bread.

    PARADISE RESTAURANT: OUTDOOR WOW!

    by DAO Updated Nov 3, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    During the day I thought this was a rich person’s house. One night I noticed the bonfire (pictured) and all the lights in a nice Garden. Welcome to the Paradise Restaurant. I stopped in during their first night! Wow! They were in the process of filling a large fountain in the courtyard when I arrived. Inside they had a new styled bar inside wih plenty of choice. Outside they offered a warm bonfire and FANTASTIC food served outside! This is easily the most exciting restaurant in town and, if you are luck enough to stay at the Fogera Hotel, a very easy 2 minute walk. Service is fast and friendly as well as professional. The uniforms are immaculate and the Manager demands great service and food for his customers. He is a really nice guy and welcomes all members of VT! Beers are served cold and the prices are low. You just cannot get a better dinning experience than here and in the nearby Fogera Hotel.

    Bon Appetite!

    Please note: Like many fantastic local restaurants in Ethiopia, they do not have a website, email or even a fully designated street address. Don’t let this make you miss a great dinning experience or pay too much staying in the hotel. Just ask your hotel or any taxi to take you here. Or just point the way!

    Favorite Dish:
    TIBS! And a bottle of Axumit Red Wine!

    INJERA - SERVED IN ALL RESTAURANTS

    by DAO Updated Apr 19, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Injera is the basic ingredient of any Ethiopian meal. It looks like a large spongy pancake and some of the sizes produced are huge. It is usually laid down in a large circular tray and sauces, meat and/or vegetables are poured right in the middle. Then you use you right hand (only) to tear pieces off the side and scoop of the wonderful food. It has been described as having a slightly sour taste. I find it’s a sharp taste, but blends in well with sauces to produce a mouth-watering flavour whatever the dish.

    Injera is made from Teff, a small grain packed with calcium, fibre,
    and protein. It is also an alternative for anyone allergic to gluten in wheat. It is also less fattening than wheat.

    Sadly this neat looking place was closed for minor renovations when I was there. It is right across from the entrance to the Royal Enclosure. I spoke to the owner/decorator briefly and he was very friendly. The décor is representative of Ethiopian culture and it has a reputation for excellent Ethiopian food. They also serve fasting & vegetarian dishes. Worth a try!

    QUARA HOTEL

    by DAO Updated Jan 3, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    During the day they operate a pastry/café where can get some good pastries and hot drinks. At night they open up the bar and have a full service restaurant. This is right on the main roundabout or Piazza area. It’s an unimaginative, but convenient option. Always busy, but the staff are helpful and you always get a table. Please note: no alcohol served during the day.

    Fogera Hotel

    by SirRichard Written Feb 18, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is one of the best options in Gonder for dinner. It has an attractive colonial style restaurant and in summer the garden huts are great too. When I tried to go it was full, as the dining hall is rather small, so reserve in advance.
    It is a hotel too, though a little overpriced (150-200B, 15-20USD)

    Ras Restaurant

    by SirRichard Written Feb 18, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This local restaurant is located in the upper part of Gonder. It is rather normal from the outside but it's good food inside... if you like INJHERA. There is a hall in the back where most of the people have lunch. The waiters don't speak much english and they don´t have a menu, so just point at the dish you want (if you see it at a nearby table).
    I came here with my boy-guide, so he ordered for me. We had a big injhera for 2 and a big water for about 2 USD (20B).

    This tiny cafe was one of my favourites here in Gonder. I used to stop here every now and then for a delicious avocado juice. Refreshing, healthy, filling... and they have A/C!
    3.50B (0,3 USD) for a giant juice.

    I arrived very late and had a excellent but quite expensive pasta. More early they would have had also local food and pizza.
