There are many times I have skipped a meal in Addis, because unless you have taste for the local food, which is delicious by the way, you don't want to try International Cuisines in any of the many Ethiopian restaurants.

Great food with a cool outdoor atmosphere. You may not want to eat here on a chilly day, since the seating is all covered, but outside. However, it's really good food. We've been here a few times over the years and will go back again when we're in Addis. Large menu full of variety. Great Local and Italian fare.

A very nice and spacious restaurant in Addis. It was hard for us to find it, we called the restaurant for some indications and they sent us a car! More expansive than the average restaurant in Addis but definitly worth it (and very not expensive to European prices...)

Best Bozena Shiro in Addis! Taken some local Ethiopians here, who undoubtedly vouched the same! The new location is spacious, good customer service and a great variety of food. Ideal for professional and personal lunches/dinners.
