Marathon Restaurant and Bar

About Marathon Restaurant and Bar

If you fancy a casual night out with fuss-free, authentic Ethiopian food and friendly service, Marathon Restaurant and Bar is a little laid-back gem in Islington's Caledonian Road. The restaurant has a large bar, wooden floors and big screens to keep the football fans happy. The enthusiastic staff are passionate about their traditional recipes, and the restaurant's signature dish is the Marathon Special Tibs: a steak of lamb cooked in red wine with onions, green chillies, tomatoes, rosemary and black pepper. There are plenty of delicious and spicy options for vegetarians, and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights Marathon Restaurant and Bar plays host to live East African music.
