Great pizza and nice atmosphere

Had two meals there, one dinner and one lunch. The Pizza is good! the salads are good to for Addis. Service good and they have the nice Rift Valley wine. My colleague told me she had tried the pasta and was not great - but I still tried it and it was not great - the tomato sauce almost tasted... read more

Its probably the most pathetic service I have seen in any restaurant in Addis Ababa. Every time I have been there, have waited long just for someone to come and attend. Last time, I went there, walked up to the counter twice and requested to send someone to take order. They very impolitely answered that waiters are few so it... More

Been here a few times and despite the food being decent, and sufficient place to sit, it can take up to 30 mins for servers to just come and serve you. Servers have the audacity to tell you it may take a while to bring a few drinks.

The food was great but the service was awful. I was traveling with a large group which is always challenging, but we made sure that we were very patient and polite because we understood that it's hard to serve so many people. Our waiter was incredibly rude and gave us a lot of attitude when we asked for things nicely.... More

This place was recommended by our driver so we went there recently. Has good ambience and staff are very friendly but I was less impressed with the food. I would not say it was value for money. The teff pizza was nothing to write home about. Let's say I have had better somewhere else. My friend was not overjoyed with... More

The restaurant is a good place for a meal at lunchtime or dinner. The pizzas are better than most others in Addis, I believe. Pastas are good too. And in fact we also recently discovered that the Ethiopian food they serve is here is particularly tasty (not a lot of Ethiopian items on the menu though). I have been there... More

Teff is a great and gluten free food source and in this restaurant you can find pizza's made with teff. And guess what : they taste really very nice. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Addis. And if you are lucky, you can see Chef Yohannis busy preparing a typical ethiopian meal for the famous 'Chef Yohanis... More

The food here is just about okay... The pizzas that they pride themselves upon is usually somewhat under cooked... The pastas are not exceptional either... The foccacia served with the gucamole n chilli sauce is the only thing worth going for here...

Wood fired oven and the great pizza bread made of teff is the secret for delicious outcome. Teff costs aboiut 15 Birr extra but is worth if. Only problem is too wide selection of pizza and other food to choose from, but friendly staff will help you to solve this "problem" too.
