Great prices ($45 altogether for 2 people; starter, main course, glass of wine, beer, coffees) Lovely atmosphere and very decorative and pretty inside. Friendly staff, interesting food choices, and the coffee and popcorn at the end was a great finish to a great night!

This really was an unexpected pleasure. Excellent, fresh, authentic Ethiopian food in a charming, welcoming setting. Great food, great service, and a wonderful atmosphere, down to the frankincense riding on the gentle sea breeze. Worth a visit.

Been there three times. Very good food in average pricing. Get ready to use your hands while eating (they offer hot water with soap before meals). Location is a bit poor as there is no view but the decoration balance the gap a bit. Try...More
