The restaurant has reopened with some of the same management team offering a unique European style brunch with sausages, carpaccio, cheeses, pastries, omelets, fish, chicken, pasta, and salad with many types of bread and rolls.

They had just started wonderful Sunday brunch but I saw the owner yesterday who informed me he is closing immediately and will be starting another venture in future.

Disappointing experience that included stale bread (as the starter) and rubbery duck. The chicken dish was okay but nothing to write home about. We were only one of two dinners at the restaurant - but despite this service was not very attentive of fast. Certainly...More

I went to the Le Grand Rève several times for dinner and countless times for brunch (on Sundays). I would say I know more than a little about restaurants in Addis, having lived in Addis. It is without any doubt the best restaurant in Addis...More

Decoration is good, service is OK, food is OK as well. I liked goat cheese salad, but steak was not tender enough. Few wines from the list were missing. Overall impression - good, but not excellent. Could come again if cannot find anything better.

The majority of the items on the menu were not available (on a Saturday night),the wine by glass is what is normally considered "carton wine" so with my friend we decided to leave. It's a pity but this place should not be ranked so high.

From the warm greeting as soon as you step in to the fabulous interior. This place best describes love at first sight. The food is just incredible. One of my favourite restaurants reminds me of being in Brussels!

Better for dinner than lunch. Food is good and of a certain quality. Wine choices are OK, but at prohibitive prices (actually the case across the country due to import duty rates)

Dear Mariam, Unfortunately LE Grand Reve is closed down, and won’t open ever again in Addis or Ethiopia. My apologies for the inconvenience caused and the wrong comment posted by a guest. Kind regards, Ken
