I think the restaurant is perfectly located. Very close to the museum as well as accessible from the the other side of the street. It has a lovely atmosphere and a beautiful setting with a mix of some outdoorish and indoorish setting. Food was ordinarily okay. Loved the fresh juice.

Nice atmosphere, lots of euro friendly options, but food just a bit ordinary. Large restaurant, lots of outdoor seating, pleasant atmosphere, staff the usual ethiopian hospitality standard.... ie they'll wander off at the drop of hat, but thats the the norm.

The Lucy Lounge is the perfect destination for lunch after a visit to the museum. The food is tasty and the setting lovely on a sunny day. The tables are arranged outside and shaded from the sun.

Went here with a group of people while visiting Addis Ababa. It was a great atmosphere! While I'm generally not a lamb person, the beg tibs were recommended to me and were actually fairly decent for lamb (trust me, that's a compliment coming from me!) The staff was friendly to us firenje's and we had a great time!
