“An old favourite”

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. You can even get a good salad.
The restaurant is looking very tired and could do with a complete facelift to bring it up to the standard of the food provided.
Prices are very reasonable for the quality and portions.

Recently visited Rico's because of a business lunch I had there. The environment is cozy, great food. I had fried Chicken and my colleague had another kind of Chicken dish, we were both satisfied with their food. The service was not bad either, expect for the wait for the bill :)

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.
