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. At Lamma anything that was not North African cuisine looked pretty bad and my dinner, bbq chicken was super dry and looked like something off a kids menu at Fridays.

Having said that, it is a nice place that is decorated to a very modern standard and therefore has a nice atmosphere which is reminscent of somewhere very far... More
