Our guide brought us here after our boat ride to the monastery. We had the fish cooked with veggies and spices in foil. Tender, delicious, couldn't ask for more.

Great views towards and over the lake. This is a touristic restuarant where a few locals go to impress. We had the foil fish which was fine , nothing to write home about however for Ethiopia it was different. Drinks are reasonable. Service was however...More

Location is a bit further out of town, we went in the evening, perhaps the view is nice in the afternoon but in the dark its not worth the trip. Menu was limited, over priced and very bland, dry food.

We came here specifically for vegetarian options (as listed on trip advisor) but they didn’t have a fasting menu nor many options. They ended up making shiro and vegetables with injera. Scenery was serene.

This place is advertised for the food and especially fish dishes. The fish served in a foil wrapping is nothing to write home about and you can get better from anywhere else. However, the garden by the lake is very nice, so I would recommend...More

Down a dirt track , the restaurant is about the views and garden/water ambience. It feels very settled with locals enjoying peaceful conversation amongst friends. The grilled fish tasted fine alongside the local beer. Waitresses are far more nonchalant than I would have expected. Overall...More
