Restaurants in Asmara

 

The restaurants offer good value for money and all offer fast, efficient and friendly service. Italian cuisine and traditional Eritrean food complement each other. Eritreans tend to eat early. therefore there is a good chance most options on the menu will be 'finished' if you choose for a late diner. You can show your appreciation for the cook's work with the Tigrinya word tu'um (delicious).
