I was so excited to hear that Addis had an Armenian restaurant, but came with low expectations as this is Africa...they blew me away! This tasted just like food in Armenia...could not be more authentic! The owner is lovely and super friendly, the staff are great and the food is amazing!

An armenian restaurant. I found quite much from Turkish kitchen. Soups delicious. Also some starters good you cant find in Turkush restaurants in Addis. I enjoyed tastes and ambience in the restaurant. Some days they had live music also good. Was one of my favorites in Addis for taste.

This is one of Ethiopia's top mediterranean restaurants. We ordered several tapas dishes for three people and were fully satisfied with quality and tastes, especially the falafels.

Really great food here - good mix of meat and veg options - and the food is really more-ish. Order all of the dips, they are incredible. Service is quick and friendly.
