This place used to be famous in Addis for Western style meat, especially stakes. With new places coming up every week in Addis Rico's is now no more than the average place to have an average-quality lunch/dinner.

The service is friendly but the food is terrible. It used to be better. Now it is really too bad. The terrace is nice but many mosquitoes.

Value for money. The open fire in the restaurant gives a cosy ambiance to the good, old fashioned Italian food. Arosto is recommened

This restaurant is small, but has a very special atmosphere of elaborate arts and furniture, and an attentive service to go with it. The value is great. If you have to eat Western-style food in Ethiopia, I would go for this one.

There was a roach crawling up the wall behind my friend's head, but then this is Addis Ababa. Food was slightly above average, but place feels past its prime. I'm not really inclined to go back.

Small place located on the main road in Addis and serve delicious local and western foods. Parking is a problem but manageable.

I had lunch in this place twice in my last visit to Addis, and once in a previous visit. The food was just amazing in every occasion. The portions are pretty much sufficient, with a side dish It's sure you will be leaving with a full tommy. The inside is nice, clean and cosy, outside there is a small space... More
