This was our first meal in Sri Lanka after a long day travelling from the UK. It was pouring with rain so we just pooped into the first place we found. This is a very small family run restaurant which is a bit rustic but...More

Delicious prawns and salad but grilled tuna wasn't that convincing. Juices are fresh. Prices are cheaper compared to other restaurants though and the service was good. We didn't enjoy much because the tropical flies keep on playing on our food.

Very good and simple restaurant with a lot of choices, from Sri Lankan cuisine to spaghetti and chicken burgers. Family-owned place with the children around - very pleasant! - and well-located on the main road.

We came when it was empty. We brought our bottle of wine. The lady who was our waiter was super understanding: we asked for no rice and salad instead and got salad instead. We asked for Sri Lankan spicy we got spicy. We ordered -...More

The restaurant is indeed 'Petit' - it has about 24 covers squeezed into the front room of a family home that is evidently a backpackers' lodging. Service is a bit leisurely, and our grilled fish was perfectly all right but uninspiring.

Ended up going for dinner twice! The food was really good quality and very reasonably priced. They don’t serve alcohol but you can bring your own which is perfect as there is a wine store very close by. Really nice family run restaurant highly recommend...More
