Griiled Fish and wine selection excellent, even if expensive. This place seems to be the in place for local expats to gather for long lunches and weekend evenings, so it is the only decent nightlife in Lamu, even if one has to pay dearly.

Very happy the staff remembered my visits, provided great hospitality, and this place was only place I enjoyed in Lamu frankly.

The bar could have DSTV for the World Cup though, a glaring omission.

Ordered the fish tacos and they were delicious! Also, two in our group wanted to pay cash and one by card - the staff split the bill without any hassle, which hasn't always been my experience throughout Africa.
