Nice atmosphere, lots of euro friendly options, but food just a bit ordinary. Large restaurant, lots of outdoor seating, pleasant atmosphere, staff the usual ethiopian hospitality standard.... ie they'll wander off at the drop of hat, but thats the the norm.

Lucy lounge and Restaurant is a great place to visit before or after visiting the National museum. The design and style and garden and lushness makes this a cool cozy place to mingle and single out what best interest you in Addis while enjoying a meal and your favorite beverage with locals and expats who gather for lunch and dinner...

The Lucy Lounge is the perfect destination for lunch after a visit to the museum. The food is tasty and the setting lovely on a sunny day. The tables are arranged outside and shaded from the sun.

I went to Lucy Lounge for lunch last week. To get the food in the first place, it takes about an hour then when it came it was so horrible. For three people dining the restaurant provided us with a plain soup only for two us. It seems the expectation was one of us had to share from the same... More

Went here with a group of people while visiting Addis Ababa. It was a great atmosphere! While I'm generally not a lamb person, the beg tibs were recommended to me and were actually fairly decent for lamb (trust me, that's a compliment coming from me!) The staff was friendly to us firenje's and we had a great time!

As a very jet-lagged family of 6, I truly appreciated the location of this restaurant after our tour of the National Musuem. It was so convenient, and really charming. The food was very good. The kids loved being able to order pasta, while I ordered shiro, which was delicious! The service was good. A nice spot in the middle of... More

We were here 6 years ago and really wanted to go back, and although we ate here twice it was a bit of a disappointment. The atmosphere is still nice and actually you should at least visit it once, but be sure you select a more traditional dish, I ate ravioli and it was way too creamy I could not... More

Unexpectedly nice, stumbled into it. Love the open air setting in the garden. The waiters are super fast and friendly and the food is fine. Will for sure go back to this place next time I'm around.
