If you're in Lalibela, you must see this - as breath-taking in its way as the rock-hewn churches! It looks a bit like International Rescue's headquarters, both the view and the food are worth the walk up the hill. Of course the famous shepherd's pie is a find in this country, but don't be unadventurous: the home made soups are very tasty (love the tomato) and the local cuisine is top class as well - all local sourced veg. Don't believe the 'limited menu' comments - there's plenty to choose from and the big thing here is that if it's on the menu, it's available - unlike a number of other places nearby. Susan makes everyone welcome and the gathering round the fire pit makes for convivial conversation with newly found friends. it'll be even better when the accommodation is finished so it'll be a quick stroll to bed at the end of the evening.
