This restaurant is offering great african ambiance and dishes.
The taste of dishes doesn't change in years, same as good and positive energy of people which welcome you and serve you in restaurant.

We have been going to La Gazelle d'Or for over 20 years now and the place is always as good. Tasty food, good service, nice atmosphere, welcoming owner. We recommend it!

You don’t expect it. From the outside it looks just like any other regular restaurant in the area.
When you walk in passed the giant aquariums, you find yourself on an evening stroll in an African village.
Under each “hut” are low raffia woven tables surrounded by chairs and benches.
Those raffia tables soon turn into the center of activity, when set with giant trays with giant injeras, the Ethiopian pancakes made of fermented teff flour, on which the wild and wonderful dishes, dance their unique flavor dance. The food has complex spicing but is not at all hot or overwhelming, very different to other types of spiced food I have eaten, the portions are generous and the service is friendly and welcoming.
We loved everything about this place. The décor, the interesting amazing food, the atmosphere, the music and the prices. It felt like you walked in to a place in Geneva and softly been transformed to another place.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. I remember having a great time there as a kid as each table has it's own "hut". The food is very good and the atmosphere nice.

I routinely go to this restaurant, and I always find nice service, and very good food. It's not a fast food, it's meant to be a slow place, to go, and relax having good food.
Strongly suggest the vegetarian "Gazelle Royal"!
