The majority of the items on the menu were not available (on a Saturday night),the wine by glass is what is normally considered "carton wine" so with my friend we decided to leave. It's a pity but this place should not be ranked so high.

From the warm greeting as soon as you step in to the fabulous interior. This place best describes love at first sight. The food is just incredible. One of my favourite restaurants reminds me of being in Brussels!

Better for dinner than lunch. Food is good and of a certain quality. Wine choices are OK, but at prohibitive prices (actually the case across the country due to import duty rates)

I have wanted to go to this restaurant for a long time. The house wine was superb, had with hot buns served with herbal butter whilst waiting for the food. I had the spiced duck, which was tender and served with a mouthwatering sauce. Highly recommend.

Note I've only been here once, and it was about a year ago... but it was hands-down the best brunch i've ever had in Addis (and i've been around). Amazing pastries, smoked salmon, fresh juices, etc etc etc. Must try! Was a little pricey, but worth every penny (birr)!

Nice cozy restaurant, in the heart of Bole, with some good wines and some delicious dishes. We were very well served, and the T-bone was perfect.

Ken and Lilly offer some of the best food in Addis, along with a fantastic atmosphere and incredible service. Their hospitality is unmatched in the city, as is their kindness.

We were a family group of 4 - aged 13-74! Wine avail is all imported - but we had a very good Pilotage from S.Africa. Not great for vegans - fortunately were all love our meat dishes. Among our dishes was a good steak tartar, hot Chèvre salad, a beef stew, and great deserts. One of the best dining experiences... More

I've been here 3 times for dinner, and twice it was absolutely great: delicious food (service, ambience, etc. are all fine, but secondary to the food.) The third time we came, the food was a overcooked (meat and pasta) and blander than previous, but the chef may have had an off day. We'll definitely go back. (I hear they have... More
