I do not know what happened. Every thing changed starting from service, quality of food quantities, cleanness and above all prices. I assume that the old owner had sold it. They had the best food and varieties that suits every taste including vegetarians. What a pity !!!!!!!!

We ordered food at the Lamma in advance and the owner brought in some dishes made in a very traditional way from the Green Mountains in eastern Libya. Highly recommend this place. Nice sea views on the terrace.

I have been truly disappointed with Tripoli restaurants. The best food I have had is local cooking, but even that isnt great.
