Went because for the reviews from TA. The place is nice and modern, seemed clean but the flies were a real nuisance. Good choice from the menu and for children. Service average, not really attentive or interested. Food was good as were the prices. I'm not sure why we didn't return ( as it was suggested and we passed it... More

My fussy kid liked the simple rice-daal curry so much that he finished it in no time. Great relaxed atmosphere and especially with monsoon rain, we enjoyed our time very much

I'm a 24yr old female travelling alone. I'm staying at the amal villas as well as getting to eat in the restaurant every night. The food is delicious. They do advise that they can get very busy so there may be a wait, but that's what going to dinner is about. Being social with family and friends. I ate my... More

Without any doubt this restaurant was the best in srilanka. Clean food and tasty. Staff was friendly, fish and sea food were fresh. All other types of food were great. Highly recommended.

The food here was very nice, we were a bit confused at first because before we'd been seated we had to choose what seafood we wanted, which they then weighed as it was sold per 100g. We had prawns and paraw fish, both of which was yummy. The manager was very chatty, giving us a free cocktail and sitting down... More

We stopped here for lunch on our way to Colombo and it was an excellent recommendation from our driver. I had the mixed seafood rice and my husband had nasi goreng. The food was fresh and delicious. I can't comment on the fresh seafood except to say the smallest fish I could choose was 500g - far too much for... More

The food is very good. We had the prawns and cob withe curry, both excellent! The vibe was not so good though. Although it is low season, the staff was not very good (you see this more in Sri Lanka) and we were forced to listen to a local band playing right at our table. The bad thing is we... More

The place looks nice and snazzy for a fun evening out however the service is a big let down! Overall we found the owner very cunning trying to palm off the most expensive dishes to you and once he realizes that your not going to fall for his tricks, he and his staff simply ignore you and start to focus...

Wow! Just wow! We were staying at Amal villa and had half board to eat at this restaurant. It was incredible. The starter (avocado and shrimp salad) that I chose was great! You could really taste the freshness of the fish! On the first night I had seer fish and it was very good but on the second night I... More
