“Good location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

It is a nice place to dine outdoors. Although the menu is nothing spectacular, based on international cuisine, they have good seafood. Expensive for Tripoli. Live music.

“History in unexpected place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

This arch is the only survivng structure from the Roman city of Oea. It is next to a main road and is easily overlooked. Some graffiti damage and the backdrop of modern buildings detract from the site.

“Excellet restaurant at Marcus Aurelius”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

If you wish to enjoy well prepared traditional Lybian food I can recommend the restaurant at the right hand side of the Marcus Aurelius Arch.

I had several business lunches lunches and dinners the restaurant in the past 10 years. It was always perfect, with nice waiters most of then speaking English.

I would suggest to try camel food. You will certainly like it.
