Rico's was a great favourite of ours when we lived here ten years ago. We revisited for nostalgia and found the food and service just as good as we remembered. They make good Ethiopian and western food with lots of spicy flavours and big quantities....More

This place used to be famous in Addis for Western style meat, especially stakes. With new places coming up every week in Addis Rico's is now no more than the average place to have an average-quality lunch/dinner.

The service is friendly but the food is terrible. It used to be better. Now it is really too bad. The terrace is nice but many mosquitoes.

Value for money. The open fire in the restaurant gives a cosy ambiance to the good, old fashioned Italian food. Arosto is recommened

This restaurant is small, but has a very special atmosphere of elaborate arts and furniture, and an attentive service to go with it. The value is great. If you have to eat Western-style food in Ethiopia, I would go for this one.
