Quality Ethiopian food and a nice experience. The interior gives you a traditional Ethiopian setting with the low, reclined seats and the mesob table. Service was prompt and attentive and the servers were helpful in selecting the best dishes. The dishes were flavorful and perfectly...More

I actually saw the restaurant while riding the City Sightseeing bus down Long Street in Cape Town. Since I love Ethiopian food, I stopped in a few days later. The service was fantastic, and the food was phenomenal! I had a platter with lentils and...More

We were a little sceptical at first because we have never tried Ethiopian food before. If you are in the same boat please just go for it and you will be amazed. The food has so much flavour and the whole atmosphere in the restaurant...More

The best way to describe the feeling we had when we walked out of Addis in Cape, is content and deeply satisfied (and sooo full). We are from a farm town near CT, but visit the city quite regularly. We recently decided that we will...More

Addis in Cape! Voted best African Eatery in Cape Town, an authentic Ethiopian restaurant that caters for Non-vegetarian, Vegan and Vegetarian clients. We provide a unique communal dining experience you, your family and friends will remember. From traditional hand-wash ceremonies to our traditional Ethiopian coffee we promise a memorable experience. Ethiopian cuisine is famous for its rich aromas and generous use of herbs and spices. The country was historically situated on trading routes that included the trade of many exotic spices; this history has had a tremendous influence on the taste of Ethiopian food as we know it. Today most of the herbs and spices are blended and prepared in the home with great love and attention, as are those used in Addis in Cape. The dishes that you taste here are unique to Ethiopia and we are proud as a restaurant to share them with you.
