We've read some reviews here re: the Sri Lankan food these guys serve so this is only based on their Western food.
The staff were great, they let us use the their pool and we bought our own wine for dinner.
Unfortunately the food was very disappointing and not what we ordered on the menu. We have been travelling Sri Lanka for 3 months on a £10 a day budget so wanted to treat ourselves to something other than the local fair. They only had one starter available, the mozzarella, tomato and pesto salad. What we got was a hard yellow cheese, three slices of tomato and mints sauce. The main wasn't much better I'm afraid. We ordered lamb and beef steak. No veggies arrived as per what the menu said, just mash. The lamb was ok but the beef was not great at all and for 2000 rupees we were a slightly taken aback.
The moral is we will stick to what Sri Lanka is famous for, rice, curry and hoppers and we enjoy it everytime. I wouldn't recommend going here for any kind of Western meal after our experience.
We wish Vasta the best of luck for the rest of 2015 and hope this review helps in some way.
