This is the most beautiful restaurant in Addis Ababa. It was originally a grand housed built by a minor royal, Dejazmach Wendirad Defabachew, who was a hero in the Battle of Adwa 1896. It is now a series of tasteful buildings, small gardens and ornate fountains overlooking all of Addis Ababa and the Entoto Mountains. Sitting on the terrace and enjoying a good meal outdoors is one of the best dinning experiences in the city. The food is good. Not fantastic, just good. Service is good, but in slow times you may need to peek your head inside and ask them to come. The only drawback of this place is that you almost exclusively need to take a small taxi to get here.


Favorite Dish:
I had the fantastic chicken salad (pictured), Nile perch and a few St. George?s beers. Combined with one of the best views of any restaurant in the world and you have a great meal!
