“Best seafood + most friendly family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2013

We LOVE seafood, and the lobster and king prawns that we had here were the **best** that we have ever had, anywhere in the world! It was SO fresh, and very simply but expertly grilled. One day I will go back to Lamu (from the U.S., 24 hours away by flight) just to eat there again.

To boot, it is run by the **warmest, friendliest family**. When they found out that it was my birthday, they even baked me a special chocolate dessert and sang me a birthday song! Thank you Areef, Azmina and your family.

“Seafood Mania!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 April 2013

Simply fresh seafood and home kind of cookings made by the family running the restaurant. Fancy Jumbo prawns or Lobster or even fresh red snapper this is the place to go.

“Great juice drinks”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2013

On our second trip to Lamu, we returned to Olympic as we'd enjoyed it so much last year, Last year's great waiter had returned to school and the management was new. The juice drinks were still great but the food was not as good as last year. Fish was always fresh but most dishes were bland, even the normally spicy ones. It is still a fun little restaurant on the sea front with the sea breezes refreshing you as you eat and the local traffic entertaining.

“Good times”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2013

Had curry which was nice. Family had fried fish (Tuna). It was from frozen, but really nice. He even sells the frozen fish by the Kilo (super cheap). Also, the coconut shake was really good. Clearly he cares about his restaurant, and his food!
