Description: Addis in Cape! Voted best African Eatery in Cape Town, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant that caters for Non-vegetarian, Vegan and Vegetarian clients. We provide a unique communal dining experience you, your family and friends will remember. From traditional hand-wash ceremonies to our traditional Ethiopian coffee we promise a memorable experience. Ethiopian cuisine is famous for its rich aromas and generous use of herbs and spices. The country was historically situated on trading routes that included the trade of many exotic spices; this history has had a tremendous influence on the taste of Ethiopian food as we know it. Today most of the herbs and spices are blended and prepared in the home with great love and attention, as are those used in Addis in Cape. The dishes that you taste here are unique to Ethiopia and we are proud as a restaurant to share them with you.

Addis in Cape Town absolutely deserves a five star rating. The atmosphere is welcoming and as far as we can judge authentic (we were almost the last ones in the restaurant the night we went, so there are no people in the picture below ;-)). The service is very friendly and explained the Ethiopian cuisine and eating culture to us, since it was our first visit to an Ethiopian restaurant. The food itself was fantastic from starter to dessert and tea/coffee (we ordered a set menu for two that gave us the option to try 8 different dishes - 4 vegetarian and 4 with different kinds of meat). From our point of view a place to go while in Cape Town!

Vegan options are provided. The decor, music and food are authentic Ethiopian. The food is delicious and the prices are very reasonable. The food was not only good, it was fresh and healthy

Simply magical: atmosphere, waiters, food everything... love it! It's just above the arguable Long Street a safe cozy and stylish place (not so cheap)

Our first visit to an ethiopian restaurant was a success. Good food with a taste of everything. Not very cheap but worth the money spent. Nice staff.
