Great dinner in King Coconut - with Negombo being one of Sri Lanka's main fishing ports, the seafood was delicious, the drinks were reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. Strongly recommended.

My family and I had lunch at King Coconut Restaurant in Negombo last week. Warmly welcomed at the Reception and directed to a table and we were thanked very warmly when we left after our meal by the Receptionist.

The restaurant is in the perfect setting overlooking the beach. There were four of us and we all had different starters and main meals and all of us really enjoyed them.

Unfortunately the service was lacking and we waited almost an hour for our lunch. Some of the staff seemed as though they would rather have been... More

King Coconut is a large restaurant rift on the water. The spacious footprint and ocean view gives tremendously open feeling. The food was good, not great. The seafood platter was pricey for the small amount of seafood. The service was good, not special.
