We visited here with friends whilst in Colombo and had a lovely meal and there were good vegetarian choices for one of our group. The restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere and caters to a variety of clientele. I would recommend to restaurant.

Had dinner here. Was a single traveller, and this place suite just fine. Service was very nice, and we can dine in leisure. Taste was good (not great though), portions were decent. Price was high but at par with the fine diners. If i come back to colombo, will definitely bring the family along to this place.

Staff were friendly, attentive and observant from a distance- professional. A loud foreign family arrived with their child treating the space like a playground, the head waiter defused a situation quickly... More

We visited this restaurant, located within the Old Dutch Hospital, on the recommendation of our Sri Lankan friend. The service couldn't be faulted and the waiter was extremely helpful in explaining some local dishes to us. My partner enjoyed an amazing dish of absolutely HUGE Negombo prawns, just delicious. I enjoyed a Sri Lankan prawn curry. The food was absolutely... More

visited this restaurant with family for a dinner out. The quality & presentation of the food was beyond expectation. Mainly the appetizers consisted of very generous portions. The grills & some seafoods were comparatively expensive. Not much of a variety of desserts. Worth a visit again
