  • One of the best restaurants

    Melting Pot Djibouti Restaurant is one of the best Restaurants I’ve been in Africa. My first surprise, when I got inside that hidden spot was the lights, the welcoming and the decor. From an outside look, you would never imagine the place would be so sparkling. I’ve eaten there 4 times during my 1 week stay, and I’ve tried the Camel meat which was...

  • NICE ENOUGH

    I went up the stairs to investigate what the L'Historil looked like inside one day at lunch time. I was greeted by a very pleasant gentleman and shown the big fish tanks and my table. Its air-conditioned and absolutely wonderful inside when you escape the heat. I had a simple lunch of spaghetti, french bread and cold water. It was ok. The menu has...

  • THE ULTIMATE MEAL

    This is, quite simply, the best bufet in Africa. It’s also the most expensive, but may be worth it if you drink. The restaurant offers a buffet every night as well as theme nights on Saturday (Arabic night), Monday (Tex Mex night) and Tuesday (Asian night). The friendly staff bring you into a large hall filled with wonderful smells and you are...

  • BEST 'BUDGET' IN CENTRE VILLE

    This is the best French meal I have ever had and the least I have ever paid for one. My meal was gorgeous, had regular sized portions, looked nice with our being a miniature piece of art and left me with plenty of change in my wallet. I read about the restaurant and its signature dish in a guidebook. The dish is the “Filet de Boeuf Sauce...

  • THE RUDEST RESTAURANT IN AFRICA

    PLEASE DO NOT EAT HERE! I walked into this restaurant to have a look and the staff ignored me at first. When I put my hand on my camera several started shouting at me. Weird. I was going to take a picture of all their pictures of movie stars. They continued to shout at me and I took the picture anyway. I have never had staff of any restaurant in...

The buffet area is the biggest I have ever seen with so much choice of dishes from all over the world.The best meal was Brunch at €32 per person. This had the biggest selection of...

  • European restaurants and Djibouti food.

    In Djibouti you can go to several european restaurants. they cook french and international food, they are cleans and good but really very expensives. About 30 €.If you don't have prejudices, you can go to eat Djiboutian food. It's very hot but you can ask it without hot. To me it's good but you must taste it, maybe it's too strong. Food for one...

  • Ethiopian food with traditional show

    L'Etoile is a great restaurant for a night out between friends or family. If there are more than 2 or 3 of you, you must book in advance as it is very popular. Ask for the traditional tables if you want to order ethiopian food or the classic tables for something else such as beef fondue (French dish favoured by expats and legionnaires on...

    Le Club de Chiminots (I don't speak French so I apolgize if I misspelled it) near the U.S. embassy. This is the only restaurant near the beach and it's usually not busy. It's very relaxing to sit under the large acacia tree and listen to the waves under a full moon.They have a grill there that has some excellent shishkebab or brochettes as they...

  • It was safe at least

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

  • Cheap and pretty good

    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.

  • Delicious Yemeni fish

    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. 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...
