We really wanted Ethiopian food, but it was getting late and we didn't feel up to a whole restaurant experience. Saw on Lalibela's website that they are open until 11pm and offer takeaway ("afhalen mogelijk!") and called to order a vegan assortment for 4 people....More

This is literally THE BEST Ethiopian restaurant you could possibly try!!! The decor is authentic. The menu has a wide tasty vegetarian choice (I have tried everything in their menu). The food is nice and filling and inexpensive! The waitress is such a sweetheart!

Our hosts had invited us here as they had had a good experience in Laliberla. We choose four different dishes (2 vegetarian, 1 meat and 1 seafood dish) from the menu and the way it was served appeared to be typical Ethopian: all dishes were...More
