Ordered tuna and they gave us something that looked like big dried sardines. No chicken in the cesar salad. Gnocchis were edible but definitely not great. This place is overstaffed and overpriced, I would not reccomend to eat here. Nice view though.

Ordered one of the Sri Lankan curries and was definitely not the best I had while in Sri Lanka. However the menu did offer a lot of western options so might be good if you have a group of people with varying food interests. The...More
