“Nice views, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2014

Went for the sunset view and a snack - fully worth the trip.
Negotiate well with the cab/bajaj driver for the return (maybe he will wait for you if you know how much time you'll spend there), as there are no transport options readily available.

“70s Hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2013

Your typical 70s communist architecture that was not been well maintained. Great views though and good coffee. Great place for a sundowner.

“Realllllly nice.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2013

One of our most expensive meals but for two it still came to just £13.50. Not bad. The view is to die for but it is a bit out of the way so you will probably want to get a taxi.

“Best restaurant in town”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2013

We spent three days in Gonder and tried out Master Chef and The Four Sisters. But we found the restaurant of Goha hotel to be the best restaurant in town. If you are not staying at the hotel, it might be a bit out of your way. However, it is well worth it to get a cab to drive you up the steep hill to enjoy balsamico-braised chicken, herb-roasted lamb or swiss soup. The food is delicious and the waiters very friendly and professional.

“Worth the Trek Up the Hill”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

Great service and delicious food. Free WiFi, a nice atmosphere with good views of Gondar (though not quite of Fasil’s complex). And not too expensive – no moreso than Master Chef or Four Sisters, for sure. Under $10 for meal, dessert, and drinks. Yes, good food can be had for less than $3 in town, but for the atmosphere it is worth the splurge.
The night I ate here the restaurant was calm, tranquil.
For dessert I had a delicious creme caramel, perhaps the best dessert I ate in Ethiopia, not because it was extraordinary but because I found dessert difficult to come by in my month of travels here. Definitely populated by Ferenji, with many from the US fitting the stereotypes (loud and expecting US standards), but in spite of this a great atmosphere (I'm from the US).
I've selected the single dollar sign because it is cheap, though it is not fast food or casual.
