A place where you can't miss when you have few days in Addis. The service is all true and you get the value for your money. However, a little expensive for a local customer.

It ll be exaggerating talking about fine cuisine, but for Alliance setting Serenade menu is appropriate and the portion and taste of the food was very good at the fair price range!

I would agree with the review just before this one; I had heard so many good things about this restaurant, and I have gave it two chances, both times I was not impressed. The first time we went to dinner. The service was extremely slow, and some people had their dinners almost 20 minutes before others, while one person's dinner... More

We went to the Alliance Francaise Restaurant because we were told that the place is nice and cosy. We arrived and found a place that despite the art gallery next door, looks like a cafeteria. And unfortunately, the food was not above the cafeteria level. Meals mentioning almonds on the menu were hiding them from us. Taste was industrial even... More

The outside garden as well as the cozy decor inside along with the delicious intercontinental cuisine make this restaurant a perfect place for an intimate and romantic dinner meal as well as a sophisticated and casual meeting place for business associates.

Really a joy, and to me it summarised all that I loved about Addis - creativity and vibrancy. I've never been for the brunch, but those are... More

This is one of my favorite fancy restaurants in Addis. The dining rooms are tastefully and artistically decorated. The menu offerings are creative and surprising. The service was a bit slow but nonetheless friendly.
