This restaurant is under-rated! It has an excellent price to quality ratio. The menu might seem like the same one you see everywhere in Addis - with fish, beef, chicken, pasta and local choices - but this place gives added attention to actual flavours, side dishes, not counting the salad bar that has out of the ordinary choices. Veggies as... More

Food and service at this restaurant are ok. Nice, very good, not much to complain about BUT the view, that is what makes the whole experience different. I ate here twice and was never disappointed. Food could be less oily and fatty but it certainly is tasty. Sit right next to the wooden fence and enjoy the peace of the... More

With countless restaurants and clubs opening in Addis, it was always a hassle trying to find a decent place to dine and none of them took my fancy. Here at kuriftu diplomat, I have had lunch, dinned with girlfriends, romantic dinner with hubby and even took my parents and the place ticked my list for fine dinning for all and... More

This restaurant is pleasant with a nice view and can be for special occasions. The menu is limited but the food is consistently good!

It was a welcoming difference from the every day life I had in Nigeria. The furniture in the restaurant was made with natural material in a traditional way, there was a life fire place next to our table, service was fairly quick, food was good and the drinks also. We were provided with toddles chairs for our young grandchild for... More

This place is really good to stay for a vacation with a family. The garden, the lake, the air and the overall place and the service is really good.

Went here for a family dinner. We enjoyed most of the menu (however, it was far from original or inspiring), drank our wine, liked the interiors... however, it didn't really leave a mark, there are many more atmospheric, friendlier, tastier, and enjoyable places around Addis.

I've been to diplomat taken by a local colleague. Nice view, decoration and service. For food I had veal and I loved it so much that I went there again next day to have more of the same. And it's not pricy

This was a good restaurant to take a break from bebere and enjera. They were also very aware and helpful when I said I could not eat gluten. Be aware that in many places they will make substitutions to menus based on what they have prepared, what is available, and what they think is best for you. So if you... More
