The Brasserie at Hemingways
Hemingways’ Brasserie serves European classics with a twist. The chef focuses on simply cooked free-range products sourced directly from Kenyan farms. The feature of the Brasserie is the Josper oven – this indoor barbecue is the only one of its kind in Kenya, specially imported by Hemingways to produce the best steaks sizzling at 800F. The special blend of charcoal used to fire this beast creates a distinct char-grilled flavour to the meat. We serve beef that has been grain fed for 180 days especially for Hemingways, and hung for 21 days. Lamb also comes from this farm. Staples of the Brasserie menu include steak tartar, bouillabaisse and omelette au choix.The menu also features forgotten favourites such as lobster, prawn or crab cocktails and fish and chips served on a board in a mini fryer basket

Practically within shouting distance of Lamu town, Manda – with next to no fresh water – was only recently almost uninhabited but is now the site of several new luxury homes and a couple of boutique resorts. Aside from the allure of the pristine beach, it is also the site of the main airstrip on the islands, and the location of the old ruined town of Takwa (favourite destination of the dhow-trip operators). Significant archeologically for the ruins of Takwa and Manda, the north side of the island is also the location of the fabulous Manda Bay lodge.
These are just a few of places to look out for, there are many other romantic and intriguing places in this beautiful land under the sun.
