Restaurant

The restaurant seating area is shaded from the sun with large palm thatched umbrellas, conveniently situated with a fantastic view of the Indian Ocean.

Our highly trained chef, Kazungu, prepares a variety of dishes from traditional Swahili cuisine to more conventional western as well as vegetarian food.

A must for breakfast is banana pancakes and fruit salad with fresh Kenyan coffee or chai tea made from local spices, or toast and eggs with home made papaya jam. Lamu's best kept secret is its freshly caught sea food... lobster, king prawns, mangrove crab, red snapper, tuna, squid, and much more... 

The blackboard gets written up every morning and depends on what the local fishermen bring in.

Red and White Snapper are often on the menu simply pan-fried with various spices and served with coconut rice and local spinach. The favourite lunch time option is the Diamond Beach Mangrove Crab sandwich served with homemade tomato chutney.  Our wood fire pizza oven makes the best pizzas in the archipelago.

An example of dinner would be tempura jumbo prawns with dips to start , followed by yellow lentil dhal , barracuda steak with rice and if you are still hungry, a pineapple crumble with custard or a simple fruit salad.
