This place was right next to our guest house and decided to check it out because it looked like every night, people would come in. Plus, their ambiance looked the nicest too. When we went in, the tables were full, so we sat at the...More

Slightly under and/or untrained staff so service is slow. Food was more westernised, but tasty none the less. Overpriced.

The setting is perfect, beach, tables, beds, swing, there is a good selection of cocktails and you can get wine and beer. The food, although very good, was ridiculously overpriced for Sri Lanka. But if you want that kind of atmosphere I guess you have...More

Promising, that's the best description I've found in order to be fair. We went for lunch. Terrace is great, right on the beach. Chilled atmosphere, nice music. But. So we ordered our food to one of the many waiters wandering around, chatting at the bar....More
