They charged me 60 usd/night just cause i called and reserved. Booked another place for 40 usd(negociated), much better. A bit of music noise in the evening from the beach. Restaurant has pretty much the worst service on the strip. All except for Desman, the small elderly gentleman, who goes out of his way to make your whole trip better...

Should have looked at reviews before coming here (ate here because it was so busy) honestly the worst food I've eaten in my 2 week trip. Service was terrible - asked for a menu and guy with Curly hair literally threw our menu's at us and walked off then when bringing out our food and cutlery he just slammed them...

Left the denim Levi's shorts under the umbrella (I was leaving when the guys were taking the umbrellas away). In two days came back and asked THREE workers about the shorts. All three have just disappeared, without any answer. After some investigations I found the administrator, who told me they throw away all things after 2 days. Please say hello...

Just came across this place while strolling along the beach. Stopped for lunch. Just superb. Excellent curry. Staff very efficient and friendly. Rooms looked good as well. So relaxing to sit have a nice meal with a cold beer looking out to sea.

I didn't read the reviews before I tried this place and wish I had, the food was as bad as previously mentioned. I ordered a vegetable roti which was completely burnt on one side, my husband ordered calamari which was very over fried, dark brown in colour and yet only vaguely warm, very disappointing after all the delicious food we...

The best place to have fresh grilled on the beach! The fish is really fresh when checking their eyes and skin. The cocktail menu is large, prices are ok, they are well presented and taste very good! Place to come back to.

My recommendation is look for another place if you want to eat. The cocktails were OK but the food was terrible and there is better places just a few meters away. We waited for more than an hour for the food to arrive.

If you visit in this beach restaurant, do not take roti. We got the most disgusting roti in whole trip in Sri Lanka with my husband. First it took over 40 minutes to get the food and then it was just gross. Wifi did not work, coconut was not chilled and in the end in a bill suddenly coca cola...
