Exquisite French cuisine. A luxurious experience in a beautiful setting. They have the best brunch setting in town, lunch and dinner settings are superb. The service is hands down. The staff are friendly and the owners are so attentive to all your needs.

Expensive for Ethiopia and serves French cuisine that is quite nice. Unless you specifically want French cuisine better to explore other local restaurants.

Birthday lunch, good food and nice setting. Preferred sitting outside on the veranda than inside when it was sunny as inside the restaurant was a bit dark. Lovely place for a gathering with a group of friends, would also be suitable for couples and families.

La Mandoline is one of my favourite restaurants in Addis. The owners and staff are incredibly friendly and warm, and the food is excellent.

This is a great restaurant in a part of Addis ababa where many hotels are located. Should be easy to get to. Delicious food. The chocolate mousse for dessert is scrumptious.

We ate here on friend recommendation and proximity to hotel. The food was pleasant but overpriced by Addis standards.

Description
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:
