Excellent restaurant. Nice atmosphere and option to sit outside on the square of the old hospital. The service was really good and friendly and the food was wonderfull. The only comment is that the portions where to big. Price value s really good.

The restaurant is situated in a lovely place in the old Dutch Hospital building with a lovely atmosphere. The staff is really good and friendly and the place is really clean and tidy. The food they serve is excellent. Nice variety of food/drinks and desserts. The only downside i can see is the price, its little over the average compared... More

Visited Semondu for dinner with family. Food and service was good. Will definitely recommend to friends. Choice of starters were limited. More varieties of mock tails could be introduced. Good location although parking can be a problem depending on the times.

I spent a very nice lunch at Semondu. It is nice located, in the Old Dutch Hospital. The food was very nice and not that pricy for the quality. I highly recommend the Trio of Seafood and the strawberry juice. The waiters were also very nice and friendly, which is something I particularly value for a restaurant.

Visited Semondu for lunch - twice. Good food, good service, relaxed atmosphere. An oasis within the busy city of Colombo. Would recommend the seafood. Run by Srilankan Airlines, so don't forget to collect your Flysmiles! HSBC card holders get a good discount.

We have enjoyed several meals at Semondu which have always been excellent. The service and ambience is good. However, the range of desserts available is limited and the main menu could do with some new dishes.

The food was very good, the beer was cold and the service much better than in most other restaurants I have been to in Colombo. And if this was not enough I even got some miles credited to my frequent flyer account when I paid the bill.

I can really recommend this place. I went there yesterday and did not know the place .The service was excellent from the moment we came and left the restaurant. The waiter was very kind because he puts the effort in explaining the menu so we knew what to choose. The food was amazing !!!! :-) you will love this place

The food was bad. Waiter taking the order did not take it correctly. Even though it's supposed to be a good restaurant the waiters don't even repeat the order after writing it down.
