Pleasant location, very average food

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... read 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.

Very nice place, food OK but with one ugly building blocking the view the place looks rather deserted.

The food used to be very good, but has slacken. Places in Addis are hot and cold, and this place seems to be going through a cold stretch. They are located up in the mountainside and used to have an incredible view of the city. Some buildings have been built in front of the restaurant so the view has been... More

I went there on a Sunday with a friend for lunch around noon and the staff were kind enough to point to us that they have buffet servings starting from 1pm-2:30pm. We agreed to check it out and boy! It was the best decision we ever made! The cost per person is birr 178 (at the time of this review).... More
