We ate here a few times during my stay in Arba. The food is good, I especially like that they have the injera dish w/vegetables only (fasting food). I had not been able to locate this anywhere (paradise lodge, 40 springs, or the pink hotel) so this was a plus for me.
The staff is very hands off and what I mean by that is we had to physically wave him over whenever we needed something. I think part of that is the language barrier, perhaps he was just avoiding our table of "westerners" but again, nothing really sticks out about this place/service. Again, the food is safe and gentle on your stomach...very nice atmosphere...lots of wildlife hanging around to include cats :) and a small deer-like creature that really liked my table rolls!
A very good place to stop and eat here in Arba.
I think my experience shows that the better places to eat in this town are co-located in hotels:
So keep your eyes open for decent hotels, and you're bound to find good/safe food :)
