“The best desserts in Addis Ababa”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 9, 2012

This is one of the few mexican food restaurants that I have experienced in Addis Ababa. The food is good for the area but they have quite a good selection of creative desserts. The restaurant has never been busy and the service has always been great.

“Food OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

A wide menu, but maybe too wide - would be better to do less at better quality. Desserts are very good.

“As it suggests, good for families”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

A decent enough lunchtime or quick snack stopover. The Mexican food on the menu is not especially Mexican; the cakes are moderate (although and improvement on most smaller cafe offerings in the city). Nice touch with water-melon ice in the cooling drinks.

Lots of space for families.
