Stunning little restaurant run by the most adorable lady. ‘Bad house, good food’ is their selling slogan. Located in Ethiopian house, it offers the real Ethiopia experience. We had a whole range of dishes and everyone loved theirs. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

The interior is cozy, the owner is friendly. A vegetarian pizza was amazing (although completely vegan, even without cheese). Pasta was average. Breakfast (pancake and toasts) were so bad, we couldn't eat them.
