Tripoli (Arabic: طرابلس‎, Ṭarābulus; Berber:"Oea" or "Wy't" ) is the capital city and the largest city of Libya, with a population of about 1.1 million people in 2015. It is located in the northwest of Libya on the edge of the desert, on a point of rocky land projecting into the Mediterranean and forming a bay. It includes the port of Tripoli and the country's largest commercial and manufacturing centre. It is also the site of the University of Tripoli. The vast Bab al-Azizia barracks, which includes the former family estate of Muammar Gaddafi, is also located in the city. Colonel Gaddafi largely ruled the country from his residence in this barracks.

Located on the top floor of the Corinthia hotel near the Old Medina. Expensive but everything in that hotel is so that is to be expected. Went for a meal with my husband for our first wedding anniversary and generally enjoyed it. Beautiful ambience and tasty food. Given the price we have not been back since as this is the type of place we would save for a special occasion, (there is not much here in Tripoli that is "special occasion" worthy therefore we would reserve this as one of those). We paid about 120 LYD for a meal including appetizers, main course and desserts. Try the tajine - very nice!

You feast like a king here. Fast and friendly service. Very good food and wish I had a restaurant like this one in my town in UK! I think the biggest plus was finding we could park outside the front door also. Amazing lemonade with fresh mint

Well worth the journey out of town to this string of cheap and cheerful fishmongers facing the Mediterranean. I can't remember which specific restaurant we went to but they all seemed pretty similar. We selected our fish outside and then went to sit in the family room whilst it was barbecued. In the meantime, you can help yourself to delicious appetisers of salad, rice and soups. When the fish arrived, it was perfectly cooked and simply delicious. As this is off the beaten track, I would advise women to dress even more modestly than you would in Tripoli.

I had been told about this restaurant by a Libyan colleagues months ago, in Tunis.Finally made it there.What a treat!The charming Lebanese couple are incredibly welcoming.The mezzes are rich, varied and prepared to near perfection.And the setting is decorated exquisotely - which is not surprising, given the spouse's interior design background.In short, a breath of very fresh air, and a wonderful experience.This beats many many Lebanese restaurants I have been too in numerous other countries.Congratulations to having such high standards in a challenging environment

Storico Ristorante Italiano dal 1927

The Storico Ristorante Italiano from 1927, certificate. In the city centre, adjacent to the Tripoli International Fair, it is the ideal place for meetings between friends and business lunches.The restaurant is equipped with wireless and tables well spaced

The restaurant is nicely redecorated and decoration is much better than before the revolution, but some of the food could be better. The mozzarella tastes like plastic and doesn't come close to the real Italian mozzarella di buffala. Spaghetti was OK and worth a second visit. Dear Sir,for me it was a real pleasure to be able to accommodate in Italian restaurant. We are pleased that want to return. It will be a nice opportunity to show our value.Thank you.See you soon.Giuseppe

Barakoda Restaurant

Reviewed By Hmosoft

Has been there for a work-team dinner. The table organization was OK, and capacity to cover all orders was adequate.They serve very nice blood-lemon, and you should treat yourself with a Mid-Spicy Pasta with either sea fruits or grouper.I did not like their overcharging the table reservation, as it was sky high compared to the market rate.

That's right this is indeed a restaurant within the ancient ruins of a Roman city. They serve up traditional Libyan fare including baby camel cooked in a clay pot which they break in front of you!, come here at night the atmosphere is fantastic.... only down side is its quite pricey
