The gallery is full of art, has a pleasant atmosphere, and the food is good. I was expecting more but it was worthy of a visit. Service was good. No one else was there when I was -- lunch time. There are so many good restaurants in Addis, it must be difficult to attract a consistent clientele. This wasn't a place I'd go back to but I'm glad I saw it and ate there once.

We had a large group, the manager was very welcoming and accommodating to our size. Great food and drink options. I loved the opportunity to walk around and see the art with friends in such an intimate environment and even bought a painting! Food was delicious with very generous portions. Thanks for a great time!

As Addis Ababa has various Italian restaurants to offer you really have to be outstanding in order to attract your customers.
The food is excellent and I always enjoy it to stroll around the pictures of the gallery.

They have art gallery immediately outside of the dining room. But much more local artists' works are displayed inside of dining hall. The paintings are authentic thriving artists' work with reasonable price. Onion soup and many spaghetti withe famous artist names and good pizza make you feel good that you came to the right place.

We have dined at Makush 7-8 times this decade and continue to enjoy the quality of the food and the wonderful Ethiopian artwork adorning the walls. We visit this restaurant and gallery every time we return to Addis.
