Bata is a hidden oasis in downtown Addis Ababa. The garden and views from the patio are fantastic and home to many monkeys. The fasting platter is also filling and has a great variety.

Bata doesnt seem as touristy as some of the other "cultural" restaurants in Addis. They have great food and great service. You can sit inside where there is dancing at night or outside. The gardens are beautiful.

When I drove in, I didn't know what I was getting into, then I entered the restaurant and I was struck. The place is BEAUTIFUL, (but it has a proclivity to get cold). I enjoyed everything it offered!

We ate here on a Wednesday evening - it was a little quiet, but we received a very warm welcome. There was traditional singing and dancing taking place in the upstairs room, where we were sitting. The food was very good - we shared a...More

Hi there, an equivalent of about 30USD in Ethiopian Birr should do for a large and sumptous meal. Cheers!
