Red Sea

About Red Sea

With its relaxed, bistro feel, Camberwell's Red Sea mixes grown up sophistication with family friendly dining. Simply decorated in neutral tones with a glass frontage giving perfect people watching views on to the street Red Sea is generally packed with everyone from stylish young couples to groups of friends enjoying the Eritrean and Italian cuisine. While the Italian menu is comprehensive and delicious it's the traditional Eritrean courses which have got visitors talking. Eaten by hand with injera bread dishes such as alicha beghie and timtimo are a homestyle treat for jaded palettes bored of run of the mill restaurant fare.
