    I went out with my family to celebrate my mom's birthday. It was my first time at Olba. I like the white interior and the raised roof. It brings in enough light for taking photos. There is a kid's playground where the little ones can go merry-go-round by themselves and still be under your watch. You can also easily access the beach for a quick stroll through a wooden pathway and some wooden stairs.

    One of the best sea side restaurant along the Lumley Beach stretch. Great view of the beach. Amazing white decor tone. Great relaxing ambience and well laid out outdoor area with tent. Children play area complements the bar, but it’s a pay per use play area. Also, the restaurant will not serve drink only without food at weekends.

    Mediterranean cuisine, the quality is there. Finally, a quality service where the waiter knows his menu and the availability of the kitchen. Succulent labneh with garlic and herbs, tiny stuffed vine leaves but offset by the quantity on the plate and cheese roll (which could be more generous) were the 3 hot and cold mezze that I feasted on . My wife was delighted with the assorted meat platter of kafta and chicken on skewers, served with fries and a mini pizza paired with Lebanese tabbouleh. The place is very pleasant, peaceful for a Friday evening in January, the neighbors at the table are quite far away. The pleasure is mainly found in this environment where you can eat quality food with your feet in the sand at a reasonable price for an expat. Warmly recommended. Smoothies that are too sweet for one and not enough for the other and ice cream could use a rethink.

    Such a great little gem of a place on Lumley Beach. We came for dinner but wish we would’ve planned to arrive early for the sun setting! Everyone at our table decided they couldn’t miss out on the lobster- so we all had the lobster plate! It’s 1.5 lobsters and French fries, so much food for such a good price (about $20 USD). They also have one of my fave Lebanese treats, mint lemonade. Also recommend the garlic crispy potatoes and hummus as an appetizer. They accept a credit card, but the night we came the machines were not working well so be prepared to pay cash!

    Lovely welcoming staff, great location and delicious food make this a must see place on Lumley. The playground takes the pressure off parents and you can relax with a sun downer or two!

    Best place to seat and watch the sunset at Lumley Beach. Get a spot in one of the booths by the sand and take it all in. I love their freshly made ginger juice (raw/organic), good for the sinuses 😃 - it comes unsweetened and you can add sugar to your own liking. There is an extensive choice of menu options; mostly Mediterranean/Lebanese leaning. I held back one star as they do not accept American Express credit card.

    Great food. Great host. Great views. You can't go wrong with a visit to Olba. Great for group meals or couples. Ibrahim is an amazing host and will make you feel at home. Food is fresh and always hot out of the kitchen. Amazing!

    The sense of Egypt and Lebanon in Freetown 😊 Nice food.. friendly staff.. great location and view … amazing atmosphere 😍

  • 1/5 Daniel L. 9 months ago on Google
    Worst food we have had ever. Selection of 2 bottles of wine. Both were utterly disgusting and so so expensive. Half of the menu not available. Were looking for seafood and found the calamari overcooked and tough. Good views don't make up for the food.
