Reliably good restaurant

Although the view is largely blocked by new buildings, this restaurant is worth a visit in Addis. Reliably good food and service. A popular destination for visiting groups.

Top view restaurant has lost its view since we first visited almost six years ago. A rather horrid building has been erected just in front of it. This is unfortunate because the view used to be lovely, especially at sun set. There are remnants of a view now, but it is just not the same. Nevertheless, the restaurant is still... More

This is a nice restaurant with indoor and outdoor seating. It used to have a panoramic view of the city but has since been blocked by an ugly government building and an ugly soon-to-be hotel. Too bad, because the attraction of this restaurant was the view. The food was okay. I had the beef; it was cooked well-done and a... More

Food was terrible, place was nice. Do not order itallian, they dont have the right ingredients so they wing it. Carbonara was disgusting and inedible.

This place use to have a great view but unfortunately the new buildings in front of it spoiled it. It is however still nicely located with good terraces and a pleasantly decorated indoor section. A friend and me went for a mid-week dinner and unfortunately it was not very good. We both had tournedos steaks but it was the same... More

This is really a very cozy place and a nice hangout for a few drinks. Food is ok but unfortunately nothing mindblowing... I had what was supposed to be a medium cooked Tournedos... which ended up being three thin slices of beef... not tough but definitely not tender and a bit dry. The cream sauce was ok but the garnish... More

Been here a couple of times for lunch and both times had a great time. The resturant is well laid out and with nice decor. They also have a wonderful playground for children as well. The food is very nice and service is excellent. It is a great place away from the chaotic Addis Adeba.

The view might not be so good now and the roadworks at Megananga do not help with getting there but for Sunday buffet you cannot fault it. Best value in Addis.
