Libyan cuisine is a mixture of Arabic and Mediterranean, with a strong Italian influence. Eating is one of the most important activities of any Libyan family. There is an abundance of dates, oranges, apricots, figs and lemons. Olive oil is the main ingredient of nearly any dish or meal in Libya, and it is almost impossible to cook or prepare any Libyan food without it. Hotel restaurants offer international cuisine. There is a fish hall in Tripoli where local restaurants can buy there fish, so the seafood is particularly good in Tripoli. Coffee is very good and popular in Libya.
