“Good lunch place, impressive menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

Centrally located close to the WFP compound the family restaurant has an impressive menu. It claims to be Mexican but there's about anything you can think of on it. Had a tropical chicken salad, very tasty. Recommended.

“Nice Macchiato”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Smooth coffee and really good sweet rolls. They have a nice Mexican fare. It is a good place to use Wi-Fi. They have been around for a number of years and still the same good service

“Not Mexican Food.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2013

I had heard a lot of good things about Family Restaurant, but I did keep my expectations low. Unfortunately even they were too high. I didn't enjoy the food. I would tell people to give this one a miss.

“Mexican and much more.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 8, 2013

If your a fan of International cuisine Family is your place. They have a wide range of foods most notably their Armenian and Mexican food is great. Its probably one of the few places you'll be able to find Mexican food here in Ethiopia. Also the place has comfortable seating and is very popular with the foreigners.
