We had a very nice family lunch here in January. We had already eaten at other restaurants at the Dutch Hospital and tried this one on our last day in Colombo. The restaurant is a little more "serious" than the other offers at this location. The menu has a good range of offers. For families, they do have high chairs.... More

Good food choices and nice ambience here at the former Dutch Hospital compound. My fish-and chips was above average. Table and seating arrangements can be a little tight for a business occasion. Otherwise good lunch experience.

Just happened to walk in for dinner as we were visiting the area. I ordered fish and chips. The dish did not smell good and did not taste good. I left not having my dinner. My friends dinner was ok but nothing really to rave about. The ambience was also quite dreary and the live music was quite pathetic. Will... More

Having only arrived in Colombo the day before, we were fortunate and glad to be accommodated on New Year's Eve. Situated in the Dutch Hospital Shopping complex, it is near several large hotels (we were in The Kingsbury, three minutes away) and offers good quality food at a reasonable, by Western standards, price. As it was NYE, we had expected... More

We ordered sirloin steak and seafood platter. Seafood (prawns, salmon, potatoes) was tasty. Steak was ok, but not special, there are much better places. Served with really crispy, nice wedges! Veggies portion is very very little. The honey comb icecream is nothing special. Two little scoops regular icecream.. Coffee is tasty, atmosphere on a Friday night is nice, but guests... More

Good setting, staff very pleasant and attentive. Like most restaurants in Colombo the menu selection was not large but at least there was something for everyone.

We went here in December. Food was very good, friendly staff. Make sure you get seats outside, especially if the live band are playing. Good value for money for what you get. We ate for 40$ p/p and had a three course meal and cocktails (no alcoholic).

The food is absolutely divine and hence, its understandable that the prices are a bit higher than one would expect but I think that if you're looking to indulge in good food then this place is excellent! Also, fantastic service and short waiting time for food. :)
