My boyfriend booked us into this restaurant for my birthday. Neither of us had tried Ethiopian food before and we were certainly not disappointed (we have been back since). We didn't have a clue what to order so the waitress recommended a few things for...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

Fantastic food. Call ahead, very small space, only 16 seats. One little lady cooking in a very small kitchen. Very authentic.

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.

Absolutely terrific Ethiopian in a tiny little space. Get there early!! We had the spicy beef, chickpeas, and lamb and it was all absolutely delicious.

We ordered a great selection of vegetarian (vegan we confirmed) plates "ye tsom" (pas du beurre -and- pas laix). The service was very nice and he brought extra spices on the side as we asked for spicy. Would highly recommend as an alternative to traditional...More

Seven years ago, while looking for a restaurant in the Latin Quarter, I found this place by chance and decided to try it. That diner became one of the memorable diners I had in Paris then. This year, back to Paris, I naturally returned to...More

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
