    Excellent food!! Unfortunately I think they have some staff shortage and as soon as the restaurant is full you’ll have to wait minimum 1,30 h to eat.

About the restaurant

L'AFRIQUE TRADITIONNELLE - Tout près de la place et de l’église de la Riponne à Lausanne, laissez-vous tenter par une escale africaine, direction l’Éthiopie ! Au restaurant Abyssinia, on se régale de spécialités authentiques dans un cadre boisé et ultra-typique. Dépaysement et ensoleillement assurés…

CUISINE CONVIVIALE - Ici, on déguste ses petits plats avec les doigts ! Samboussa, tartare de bœuf éthiopien, émincé d'agneau au poivre exotique ou cuisses de poulet au paprika, tous ces mets épicés sont servis sur l’anjera, la fameuse crêpe à partager avec toute la tablée.

SERVICE CONTINU - Parfait pour un petit creux à toute heure de la journée, ce lieu hautement recommandé propose aussi d’accueillir vos groupes de potes endiablés ou d’organiser des événements privés.
