“Fine for a hotel restaurant”
Reviewed 23 December 2013

Food was fine, service is good and the coffee (as is true of most places in Ethiopia) is delicious. I wouldn't hesitate to eat here, but wouldn't say it's my favorite place for food either.

“Cooking school - poor value, rushed class”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

We signed up for their cooking class hoping to experience Ethiopian cooking and learn how we can replicate the cuisine when back home. Sadly, this was a total failure. It is very, very overpriced. At $50 for the two of us, we expected to actually learn something. Instead, we had a rushed demonstration of pre-made spices and ingredients going into a pan, where we just stood and watched while trying to parse out what was happening. We occasionally were invited to stir. There was a bit of a language barrier, but we did understand the frequent sales pitches for having us buy the hotel's spices, rather than telling us how to make it ourselves. We were told conflicting prices, and when we brought it up, our host told us we could pay the lesser amount (25 each) though he'd expect a tip in return. We did enjoy seeing the back kitchen and getting a basic understanding of the dishes we've now become familiar with across the country (shiro, alicha wat, tibs) but I would not recommend this "class" to anyone, unless the cost is greatly reduced.

“best pizza”
Reviewed 28 October 2013

nice food but it take soooooooooooo long, even if you are the only one in the restaurant.
quite pricey too, compared to other restaurants.
the pizza here is a nice change to the rest of the food in Lallibela.
