We ate here whilst in Negombo, it was a nice little restaurant - lovely ambience and good relaxed vibe to it. The food was generally good - although my spicy singapore chilli crab tasted more like sweet and sour and sadly lacked any spice. Other people had prawns - very tasty, and a mix of plentiful Thai/Sri Lankan food. The... More

the place is pretty shabby and not welcoming nor courteous service staff. the fish was not fresh and in the bill we found unjustifiable additional fees. you think you pay 20, and instead find out that you pay 35 very bad.

We dined at this restaurant the first night we arrived in Sri Lanka and it was the worst meal eaten on the island. not only the 10% extra for the service (also horrible), they were charged to the bill other unjustified fees. It must absolutely be avoided

The sea food platter was simply divine. The staff is also very nice and prices are reasonable. The food seafood was fresh and quickly papered and the restaurant has a nice atmosphere. Make sure you go here for a treat if you are a seafood lover and while in Negombo.

We visited here in Dec 2016 based on previous reviews. Sadly we were very disappointed. Service was worse than slow - Nearly half an hour to just order a beer (we should have left then). Staff were completely unorganized, most of their time seemed to be spent trying to work out their card payment machine! Only 2 people seemed to... More

Went here for the seafood after many other couples and tourists have mentioned to come here. Checked the TripAdvisor rating, and came to have dinner. Had the lobster which was amazing (see picture). Had the brownie for dessert which was also one of the best I have ever had. Visited 3 times overall. Bathrooms were a bit dirty, but now... More

Description
Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
