In this restaurant, you choose your fish from the kitchen, they cook it and deliver it to you table. The food was excellent and the beach ambience does make it special

Terrific location -- their seating area is on the beach. Can't get any better than that!!The food is good and cheaper than other outrageously priced Colombo seafood restaurants like the lagoon and ministry of crab. Highly recommended for the amazing location.
