I visited this place with my family last year. Food was very ordinary & high priced. i went when there was a discount for local credit cards. but even the price are very high & food is not fine at all. specially the Chicken lasagna my son tried.

Beers nice & cold ate here twice. First time a giant pizza for a quick lunch. Second lunch time we had the Sri Lanka special of various vegetables with choice chicken/meat or prawn etc. served individually. Very tasty. Not the quickest service but staff chatty & friendly.

Returning after 4 years! Wanted to try this place because it was revamped and had a New management. Great Ambience. Live music added more colour. Staff was attentive. But all these wasn't enough to turn away our dissatisfaction on food! First the soup took 30 minutes to show up at the table. Which was actually good. I ordered shrimp soup.... More

The seafood platter was really good but you end up wasting most of your time waiting around. So many people work in the this restaurant and the service is really poor. What a shame.

Large Parking available but its not marked properly. If you are approaching from Negombo you have to pass the restaurant parking as there are no proper sign boards visible in the night to say that it is the parking reserved for the restaurant. Large dining area available neat & tidy. The day we visited there were no open air tables... More

We visited this restaurant on arrival in Negombo as it was a walking distance from our hotel. It has beautiful location but sadly that's the only positive . The staff are so sullen and angry looking and to make matters worse the food arrived cold. I'd never recommend this place nor would I revisit . A bad end to our... More

Situated on the beach in Negombo this is a fairly big and noisy restaurant. When I visited there was a large Chinese group there who filled up nearly half of the restaurant. Nevertheless , the seafood is real good and they also have some real spicy and tasty dishes. And it is of course nice to have dinner on the... More

Self attended with my family to this restaurant & had experienced the worst ever service in restaurant industry I had ever been. I'm a sea food lover. Had a good welcome from the security guards, but thereafter the services was so unprofessional. After ordering the food had stayed for about 1/2hr n when inquired from the steward (name - UDAYA)...
