When you arrive here you are encouraged to choose from the fresh seafood selection and when you ask for the menu they openly show the disappointment of not being able to flog you a expensive meal. Saying that the meal we had from the limited menu of local food was average in quality but top end of money for what... More

Was at the restaurent with a bunch of office mates. The food was fresh and tasty. Given it was a week day evening there was still a good crowd, predominantly foreigners. The service was good and the waiters were there to attend promptly to all your requests. We had Prawns, grilled whole fish, crabs and cuttle fish and it was... More

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
