Enesra means ?Big Pot? in Amharic. The first time I ate here I was convinced this is the best restaurant in Ethiopia. After more than 8-9 visits to Ethiopia later I know there is stiff competition for this distinction in a country full of world class restaurants in terms of food. I have always had a FANTASTIC meal, entertainment, service, drink and prices on my many visits to Enesra.

I love this place. Great food, live entertainment, great service and surprisingly low prices.

They have it all:

? Live Music ? every night!
? Fantastic food. Fresh, premium cuts of meat, vegetarian options
? Great decorations of Traditional Ethiopian life
? All the friendly staff are dressed traditionally
? A huge and lively bar downstairs
? Lots of ex-pats (downstairs)
? Family oriented (upstairs)
? Performance of the Coffee Ceremony every night
? Great selection of ice cold beers and local wines
? Great prices

Favorite Dish:
I have tried several dishes and they are all delicious. All mains come with 4 different sauces to add extra flavour. Try the local Axumite Red Wine. Semi-sweet and light.


Price Comparison: about average
Directions: On Mickey Leland Road, Opposite Nyala Insurance.

Enesra sounds like 'Insura' if you take a taxi
