Have you ever wondered which places are ideal for wining and dining that girl who finally agreed to go out with you? Whether it’s a first date, dinner with your better-half or an anniversary dinner, you would want to surprise her with your restaurant selection. There is nothing like good food served in an amorous surrounding to bring a smile on anyone’s face, a feast both for the heart and the mouth. These are some of my favorite romantic restaurants in Addis
- Roof Top Restaurant
Who doesn’t like a skyline view, right! Roof Top restaurant is located on the top of T.K building, Bole. You get a lovely table on the terrace with a view of Bole and the Airport terminal. It is a harmonious and comfortable environment. I know it turned around a potentially awkward first date for me.

- Top view Restaurant
Going up the hill from the megenagna round about, you will come across Top View Restaurant. As the name indicates, you get to see Addis from the top of a hill while enjoying a great meal. It a great place to enjoy a quiet dinner, do some hand-holding or maybe steal a few kisses

- Serenade Restaurant
Serenade is very close to my heart because it is where my hubby and I go when we are feeling the love-bug bite. It is the ideal place to go for a very intimate dinner that will give you a memorable night. It has recently relocated to the Alliance ethio-francaise. The artworks on the wall give it a great ambience and the menu consists of mainly Mediterranean foods with a creative twist.

- La Mandoline
If you are feeling French then you definitely have to check out La Mondaline. Just around atlas this place only serves French food that simply melts in your mouth. The paintings on the wall, the music and the aura of the place makes you feel like you are dining in a little French village. You can also find a selection of French wines to set the tone of your night. If your aim is to steal her heart then this is the place to take her.

- The Diplomat’s Club
It is found at the heart of the city on the top floor of Boston Spa Building, Bole. This is more of the kind of place you would celebrate an anniversary. It’s an elegant and sophisticated surrounding with a great champagne selection. They have a menu that’s changes monthly so she will be surprised even if she has been there before.

- Grani Di Pepe Restaurant
The restaurant is located at the 28th roundabout in Aware. It is a vintage 50’s renovated house that is cozy and soothing with a beautiful garden. It is one of those places that will leave such an impression that she will still be thinking about the date long after it’s over. They serve one of the most authentic Italian dishes in Addis Ababa.
