Excellent in taste of dishes, service of staffs and the atmosphere of restaurant. Variety of menu is not much. But they had today's special menu for it. The location is limitation.

Spent two weeks in Addis and visited La Mandoline about 5-6 times, and never failed us. Amazing fresh food, good service, French dishes and wonderful desserts. Would highly recommend.

Great with kids for a cafe outdoors meal, as they can run around. But also great with adults in the evenings. Menu never disappoints. However could do with a few simple food options for kids. Always annoying that they don't take credit card.

Can be a bit up and down, especially if owner is not there, decent french food if a bit pricey. Service at times can be slow especially when busy. Good place for a Sunday lunch and very good for kids. Great wine selection but expensive.

You can make it by phoning the Restaurant, or just go even without reservation, you will be served. If you are dinning in number, better reserve on phone.

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.
