“Tasty fish curries”
Reviewed October 26, 2012

freshly cooked food but the place is extremely basic. Right by the harbour front so pleasantly cool. We placed our order and went to the hotel next door for a beer as alchoholis not available. It made for a pleasant supper.

“Generous portions and relaxed environment”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We ate at Olympic restaurant on our first evening in Lamu, and kept coming back. The fish kebabs and coconut fish with coconut rice (both not on the menu -- but ask for them!) were delicious. The Swahili crab was fresh (we saw it alive) and huge. We also really enjoyed the mixed fruit juice (we added coconut); it was filling enough to call a lunch. The family that runs the restaurant is friendly, especially the woman, who even gave us extras such as vegetables on the side and fruit for dessert.

“Fantastic seafood”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

Go here if you want big portions of wonderfully prepared seafood. Those women know how to cook. I had a big slab of king fish. They threw in desert free.
