With a name like Adams Cafe and a daytime menu of full English and other greasy spoon favourites, you might not expect the nightly transformation into a cosy North African bistro. Head here after 7pm, though, and mottled lampshades scatter pretty patterns of light across a candlelit room that’s decorated in muted blues and greens, with ornate ceramic tiling. In-the-know locals often fill the place.

The menu is helpfully split into prices for one, two or three courses; you can mix and match as you like and it’s great value. Briks, doigts de fatma and cigares – all crisp little pastries, surprisingly light and delicately spiced, with meat, seafood or vegetarian fillings – are highlights among the starters. Main courses include tagines and couscous, as well as a variety of grilled meats and fish.

The chefs hail from Morocco and Tunisia, and the subtlety of the aromatic dishes shows their homelands’ cuisines in their best light. Complimentary appetisers, a leisurely atmosphere and optional BYO add to diners’ sense of well-being.

One of our favourite restaurants in the whole of London, and definitely the best in terms of value for money. The food is sophisticated and well-presented - particularly recommended are the tagines and cous cous dishes. And really friendly service.


Lots of interesting dishes and flavours I'd never tasted before! Everything was lovely and tasty, and all such good value. I'll definitely be coming back again and again!


excellent food and very friendly , it's one of our favourites. It's recently been redecorated and looks even nicer than in the picture. can't recommend this one highly enough.
