Outdoors at the terrace you can drink your tea or coffee or smoke the waterpipe.The interior of the restaurant has warm red and yellow colours. We had our dinner at the first floor with a splendid view at...

  • Libya - not a culinary highlight

    Eating in Libya, definately not a culinary tripDaily, sometimes twice - A so called "Libyan soup" (Spicy tomatosoup with local vegtables)- Bread in different tastes- Water 'a volonté' and a soft drink for free. NA drinks to be paid (Becks beer 2LD)- An entrance of local vegtables- Most of the time Couscous with chicken, fresh fish, lamb or camel...

  • Best Buy in Tripoli

    This restaurant is right on Green Square. It is Lebanese, and the owner, Nikolas, is very nice and gracious. The food is traditional Middle Eastern, with a Lebanese flair. The salads, the kabab, the pizza are all wonderful. It is not traditional Libyan. But for good food, well-served, and reasonably priced, it is unbeatable in Tripoli.

    In the old city of Tripoli is a restaurant at an absolutily stunning location, just beside the Marcus Aurelius Arch. You can enter the restaurant at the lower floor by walking through the arch first. When I visited the arch during daytime, I took the chance to look around in the restaurant and its terrace as well. Unfortunatily I had not enough...

  • Benghazi, chicken or chicken ?

    The last night in Benghazi before we had to leave for the airport we ordered our dinner in a local chicken restaurant in the citycentre. Before dinner was served we could have our last walk in the citycentre. Like most of the bars and restaurants along this street there were no toilets. So like earlier in the afternoon I had to go to a hotel two...

    Before we took the road into the desert from the coastal road we had our last stop at a restaurant. It was far before lunchtime, so we had only a drink and a toilet stop. We also bought the last snacks and drinks for in the bus. The restaurant has a nice and shady ambiance. We didn´t have a meal here, but saw a lot of livestock like chickens,...

  • Ptolemais, lunch at the site

    We arrived at Ptolemais around lunchtime. At the entrance of the ancient site under the shady trees were a lot of tables with benches and stairs all over the place. It was crowded with tourist busses. So all tables under the trees and in the restaurants were full. We ordered our lunch and went into the museum first for half an hour. We had a tasty...

    After visiting the ancient sites of Cyrene we visited one of the restaurants close to the entrance. From here we had a marvellous view at the site. During lunchtime it was rather crowded with toursit busses, but at the end of the afternoon we had the place almost for us alone. We didn't have a meal here, but we drunk a coffee, cappucino and tea.

  • Shahhat, another chicken restaurant

    When we arrived at the ancient site of Cyrene at lunchtime all the restaurants at the entrance were totally full. So we decided to head to the nearby town Shahhat. We stopped at one of the first restaurant we saw opposite the mosque. There were hardly any visitors, so we didn't need to wait very long for our meal. It was a chicken restauarant, not...

  • Al Bayda, chicken restaurant

    in Al Bayda we took our dinner two times in the same chicken restaurant at the main shopping street. There are a lot of chickenrestaurants all over Libya, but I don't know the names, because I don't read arabic. This one in Al Bayda was frequented by local people. The food was good and cheap, the staff was friendly and very fast in bringing the...

    From Tripoli we visited the ancient site Sabratha during a trip of a whole day. At luch time we visited the restaurant just outside the entrance at the right hand side.

  • Which soup?

    No matter where you eat in Libya, you can be sure the first thing on the menu will be soup! Always Libyan soup, maybe Moroccan soup, fish soup, lentil soup, vegetable soup ..... that's about the complete list - though one place I went to had a variation - prawn soup!It didn't worry me - I love soup and it was winter. The best I had was a vegetable...

  • Libyan Soup

    Obviously very proud of their culinary heritage, the restaurants all served their favourite Libyan soup as starters. Nearly every single lunch or dinner began with the Libyan version of Minestroni soup. Some were very nice, some rather mediocre, but even the best ones became rather tedious after the first eight!

  • Lebanese in Libya

    This was for me the best restaurant in Libya and it's wasn't one with a Libyan kitschen. This Lebanese restaurant has great mezze and that is what I really love. Also the soup is good and the mixed grill is great. At the end they bring you a nice glass of mint-tea. The prices are around 15 LD, a soft-drink included. MEZZE !!!!!

  • Seafood in Benghazi

    Not a very cosy place but the seafood is great. They bring you first the hummus-dip with the bread and the salad, after that a fish-soup. Then you can taste a few different fish. Don't eat to much from everything because every time that you think it will be the last fish they bring you a new one !! The price is very reasonable: less than 20 LD The...

  • One of my favorites in Tripoli...

    One of my favorites in Tripoli is the Lebanese restraurant behind the Al-Kebir hotel on the sea front. Its authentic Lebanese giving good, quick, reasonably-priced food. I also find out-of-city-centre more interesting; try on Gargaresh Road, a good area for a stroll before dinner and its only a few kilometers west of the city centre (short taxi...

    For Lepcis Magna: use the site restaurantVery handy for the site which really needs more than one day given to it, thus time spent going away from it is time wasted. But it is large enough not to feel crowded and cool when the weather is hot! It also has much better toilets than those at the site carpark (and is immediately adjacent to the carpark....

  • The Sefira Restaurant

    A good place to eat without being fussy or over the top. The muzak is 60's but not intrusive. The plates all seem to be Sheraton, judging by the motif! Good Libyan soup (a slightly spicy to hot, depending on where it is made, concoction). They serve fish beautifully, a skin of a tomato turned into a shade for a small candle that burns on top of...

    The Forssan Restaurant on the road from Sabratha to Tripoli. The tape is of birdsong and a fountain plays in the centre of the restaurant. The food is very good, and the service friendly and excellent.It comes as a real surprise as the outside does not especially distinguish it from others. The risotto dish of chicken livers and angelica, the...

    The fish restaurant at the roundabout in the Shari Muhamed al Maqri Street. I can't remember the name of the place but the cooking was excellent. It's the street starting at the Green square into the more modern 'Italian style' quarter of Tripoli.The picture shows the fish market in Tripoli: they have small sharks for sale I ate a couscous of...
