I ate here with colleagues on a week night. It was reasonably empty and therefore the service was good - attentive and professional. The drinks and wine list was extensive and good. The menu is varied and easy to read and understand. I had baked crab and coconut curry crusted fish, both of which were delicious - well cooked, hot... More

I ate the signature dish, Chicken with lemongrass . I also tried the world famous prawns and ate a Pasta Frutti di mare for main. Furthermore, all these dishes was quite amzingly prepared. Staff was also very courteous.

I would not recommend this place ever. Expensive menu, horrible service and the portion are too small. Average food. Limited Menu. Good ambience.

The cafe/restaurant is well-lit, splendidly decorated, and full of atmosphere. Definetly one of the nicest spots in Colombo for an elegant dinner. The menu is vast and occasionally interesting. The prices not moderate.

Visited on our last night before returning back home and what a great way to end the trip!! The restaurant is located in a beautiful quiet courtyard, you could be anywhere but busy Colombo. Do check out their gift shop too. The food at the restaurant was fantastic and full flavour. Make sure you leave room for one of their... More

Great ambiance and decor. Good place to spend an evening with old friends. Service is sometimes not that good. Food is nice but the Baked crab which comes as a mashed lump on a crab shaped piece of metal , minus a crab shell is a fraud. You must try their Crème Brule. Creative granite wine bucket in the garden.

I went there for a corporate dinner. Had to wait for years before the main dishes finally came out. Food was too salty. Dessert was sweet despite it was better compared to the main dish. Do not expect much from this restaurant.

Outstanding?.....and continuing on...... Architecture, ambiance, quality of service and food is always a pleasurable experience. The Wine list is not that long, but overall experience is worthy indeed. Commendable array of desserts including home-made ice creams etc... For a first timer in Colombo; this place Certainly is " a must try" venue.
