Nice Place, Nice Food

Located in a very nice place with ample parking specially at nights. Do not recommend much for day time events due to unavailability of out door seating and heat, but you always got indoor seats for some crowd. The service is bit slow, so it recommend to order what you need as quickly as you can... read more

I think I have been to this restaurant more than any other places in Colombo ... well first I must say its a well disciplined place as the management belongs to Navy, so there's a big difference in manner which their staff behave ... I like it !!! and its something that you want from a restaurant when you specially... More

Nice place to enjoy which is away from the noisy city and sea breeze make you fresh after along day of work. Very tasty food and reasonable in price. Portions also fairly large and service is decent. Just close to Colombo fort and just a Rs. 50- 80 drive by a Tri-saw. Located in front of the Colombo light house... More

Went this place with couple of my friends for Dinner. This place nicely maintained, clean, cool and calm. Located just in front of the Colombo Light House in Chaythya Road. We have ordered deep fried cuttlefish and it was superb. Portions are quite large. Also we had some sea food noodles and rice as well. Those were also very tasty.... More

At the heart of Colombo you can have a meal, a party for forty people or even a small wedding at a very reasonable cost. Food quality and portions are good. Service is good. The most interesting are the well stocked bar at amazing prices for a restaurant of this nice. Star dish is the mixed grill which is excellent... More

Couple of friends visited this establishment for dinner. For 4 of us we ordered 2 portions of Noodles and Deviled Chicken, Hot Butter Cuttlefish and Mushroom we couldn't eat all because the noodle portion was really large what we felt was one portion would have been sufficient for the 4 of us. The food was reasonably priced, the service was... More

Good location and the ample parking on opposite the restaurant. Menu isn't too fancy but the food is decent. Service could have been more prompt. However anyone looking to have a bite and chill out with a good sea breeze and harbour view this a decent place to grab a bite

Which is why not many tourists come in. To be very blunt, the food is edible but that's about it. Don't have much more to say sorry.
