not to miss the fish-shop restaurant combo

Consider yourself deprived of a unique experience if you don't get to enjoy a fresh fish (you pick) that then's grilled while you wait; several restaurants do that and the result is heavenly!

Nothing to enjoy starting with taste, extremely bad service and cleanness. the food has no meaning or identity, the waiters are making you a favour to serv you and above all extremly expensive for such quality. If you enjoy good dinning do not go there.

Hofra (which means ´the hole´ in arabic) used to be an interesting attraction in Tripoli. A mixture of fish market and restaurants, a big fuss of fish sellers and families. You could buy your fish and have it prepared there. But it no longer exists (closed in 2009). They keep calling ´hofra´ a region nearby where you have some restaurants... More

I went there last Friday to have lunch in it, and discovered that it has been removed and doing some constructions there. I don't know what happened and if they have moved it to another area!

I live not far from the place, it's amazing, delicious food. The avrage price is less than that, much les than that. I think it'd go for up to $50 pp. Depends on type of fish ordered. Best resturant is Al-shatt resturant I'd give it the star amongest all the resturants

We ate here many times- it's quite rustic and not very atmospheric during the day- looks better in the evening -... More

I went there with a Spanish man. I was very happy to hear that he was enjoying the meal very much as well as I. However, I believe the service there are nice, but no very much compared with other modern countries, but I am sure you will be happy to choose fish that you would like. I will go... More
