About the restaurant Le Red Sea

MER ROUGE - Le Red Sea est situé dans une petite ruelle de Lausanne, à deux pas de la Riponne. Dans un cadre typique d’Ethiopie, en plein voyage culinaire, vous aurez le choix entre une yeh dinech salad, un shiro, un kulwa (plat à base de bœuf), tsebhi derho, tsebhi beghie...

VOYAGE À LA CARTE - Perdu dans tous ces noms de plat ? N’ayez crainte, le maître des lieux, sympathique comme tout, se fera un plaisir de vous faire découvrir ses spécialités, toutes plus dépaysantes les unes que les autres.

AVEC LES DOIGTS - Ici, on sert une vraie cuisine érythréenne et éthiopienne à déguster avec les mains dans un plat unique : typique et convivial à souhait ! Rassurez-vous, si vraiment vous n’êtes pas habiles avec vos doigts, vous aurez droit à des couverts !

Food was very nice, not a lot of choice though (especially for vegetarians). Service was very friendly. Good, casual atmosphere.

They serve really tasty food, with vegetarian options. Very cheap prize for swiss standards, keeping a good quality. In addition, we got 50% discount upon reservation on the webpage. I highly recommend this place and will go again!
