We ate dinner at Moonrise. It was good. Nothing that wowed us, but it was good. We waited over an hour and a half for our meal, but it seems that waiting is to be expected when you're on island time.

A great restaurant with such delicious sea food.
The staff are professional and very friendly.

The food is fresh and is prepared as you wait. Quite a variety to choose from.
A must visit again when in Lamu.

We wanted to get away from the down market seafood fare that you find on the Lamu seafront. This was just the place. It's tucked away at the end of the sea front and has a pleasant ambiance beneath some trees in a courtyard overlooking the dhows. Service is good, the food was fine, but a little pricey for the island. However, you can be assured that it is cooked fresh in the kitchen and is not some microwaved or reheated leftovers that some of the more disreputable restaurants dish out. Thumbs up!

There are very few places in Lamu Town which make you feel like you are back home enjoying the qualities of good dining service and food. This place is one of them. On Kenyatta road and towards Coconut Beach (near to the right side end of Lamu Town), when entering this place for lunch we felt we managed to escape just a little.

As a vegetarian, this place serves exciting options!

The place has a great location, the staff are pleasant and the food good. Compared with other nearby restaurants the prices are high - it's not hard to find similar quality for a third as much. My "house white" wine was oxidised and undrinkable.
