The Majlis Restaurant is a focal point of the hotel due to its unique architecture and excellent cuisine featuring International, Italian (seafood, pasta, wooden pizza oven and home-made ice-cream), and Swahili dishes. The restaurant is open for in-house guests as well as external guests. In-house guests of the hotel typically book an all-inclusive stay because of the lack of good and easy to access restaurants in the Lamu archipelago.
The Restaurant roof reaches 14 meters high and is built in the local tradition of casuarinas and mangrove poles, covered in very long palm leaves (‘makuti’ in Swahili). The Restaurant combines an open-plan veranda on the ground floor and terrace/bar on the first floor offering panoramic views over the Ras Kitau bay.
The Majlis Restaurant offers the finest dining in the Lamu archipelago featuring the best in local produce and fresh seasonal ingredients. We regularly purchase seafood in the morning from local fisherman returning from the sea on their way to market. The Restaurant’s cuisine tastefully combines international dishes with the best local produce.
Breakfast is served in the morning in the open plan dining area. In-house guests can choose from the à-la-carte menu, which includes fresh fruits, home-baked breads and pastries, cereals, eggs as well as a full English breakfast.
The Restaurant is open at lunch and dinner offering a 4 course set menu with fish and meat options. The set menu changes every day, and is created by the Restaurant’s chefs ensuring to satisfy the most discerning palate.
There is also an extensive à-la-carte menu for those guests (in-house or external) who wish to order something special according to their tastes. The offering includes vegetarian, daily-catch seafood, wood-fired pizzas, and a range of international dishes. We also offer romantic candle-lit dining ‘al fresco’ under the stars.
