Very nice place to relax with good food and wine. I has almost given up on getting a nice steak in Ehtiopia but being an optimist I ordered a pepper steak. It paid off, very nice, I really enjoyed it.

Note that there are no street addresses in Ethiopia! I've done my best to describe its location as would be done by one person living in Ethiopia to another. I lived in Ethiopia for 2 years, and I assure you this place exists. A map to this establishment can be found in the American Embassy publication at: http://photos.state.gov/libraries/ethiopia/427391/PDF%20files/The%20Lion%20June%209.pdf
