I had been to this place twice once for Dinner and once for Lunch. The view in the evening is breath taking it overlooks the Colombo Harbour with night flood lights you should see it to believe. Food is okay value for the money. Sometimes you have to wait for a seat. This restaurant has a ship concept ( more... More

This restaurant is located in the middle of nowhere. The only reason we chose this place for lunch is due to my friends' office being in close proximity and in the industrial/port area. We walked in after calling with a reservation and we were refused entry due to my friend being in shorts and the no alternative like a wrap... More

Been here quite a few times. What always makes me want to come back is the Delicious food, Great pub and soothing music. Friday nights are the best with live music being played. You always get a decent crowd and mostly seaman I was told. Got an awesome view of the Colombo harbor. Mostly gets crowded on Fridays and Weekends.... More

This restaurant has a nice ambience being located atop a building with nice views of the Colombo harbor, but it is located in a congested and unsightly area of Colombo (Mutuwal). Best to get their by cab and leave the driving to someone else. Food selection was good, and prices were reasonable. Most of our party were pleased with their... More
