We would agree with other reviewers that this place really lacks atmosphere, and could be any anonymous chain eaterie. The starters were fabulous, and the cheese bread in particular was absolutely delicious. After this, the main courses were somewhat disappointing, and seemed to lack the flair and taste of the starters. The service was somewhat slow, despite us arriving early in the evening when the restaurant was quiet. Overall, an average experience, and we probably wouldn't go back.

Adulis (Oval)

We booked a table for two early on a Friday evening. Although it was quiet when we arrived, the staff were really disinterested and it took over 10 minutes to get any drinks or order our food. After waiting a long time, we were given the wrong order, which we had to send back, and then wait again until our food finally arrived. The food itself was fine, but if the waiting staff had been bothered to come near our table again they could have doubled our bill by serving us some drinks. Underwhelmed by the service we refused to pay the 12.5% service charge they added to the bill.
