It took a while but dinner was very good. Service was really "french", not very very friendly but okay

If you stumble across a restaurant near the Pantheon which has people lined out, you've probably come across Godjo. Authentic Ethiopian cuisine in the heart of Paris, a treasure. I loved every single thing at this place, the service, the taste and the culture of...More

A small hidden gem in the heart of Latin quarter. Unpretentious facade that one might easily miss, Godjo tantalizes the tastebuds and delivers authentic Ethiopian cuisine. As a vegetarian, I thoroughly enjoyed their presentation. Excellent place to dine in, be prepared to be cozy with...More

The dishes are hearty and spicy, but you can ask for a less hot meal. The atmosphere is joyful. If only the place could be more spacious, it would allow more people to try this excellent restaurant.

A nice place with very good food. My girlfriend is a vegeterian, and there was plenty to choose. This was our first visit, so we tried a set menu. You eat with your hands, and some "pancakes". Very special and nice.

Quartier Latin
The Latin Quarter bursts with intellectual life,
architectural splendour and ongoing merriment. The
small streets are filled with classical buildings,
student bars and lively eateries while the squares are
dominated by historic monuments. The area is defined
by the 800-year-old Sorbonne University, where Latin
once prevailed, and is famous for the Pantheon which
celebrates the great men and women of France. During
