and it was the biggest I've ever seen ! Plus chips and a wonderful salade... Let's start with the beginning : before entering the restaurant, something caught my eyes : " A Grade accorded by Sri Lanka Tourist Board". Credit cards accepted. You can make a reservation; tel. nr.: 031/227 4710. There are 2 tables outside and the rest are... More

I'd been told that things had improved greatly since my last visit earlier this year, so I was quite happy to give the Swiss a try. Warm greeting, drink order taken and drink produced with menu. Spent some 5 - 10 minutes making up my mind, opting for Prawn cocktail starter & Beef goulash main. When ordering, was advised none... More

Of the three nights we had in Negombo, we came here twice and ordered the fondue both times. I've had fondue in Switzerland and in France and this was the best I've ever had. The staff is terrific also.

With friends for their last evening in Sri Lanka. We were alone for most of the evening until a family arrived. I asked for a glass of medium white wine only to be presented with the remains of demijon, the wine tasted stale so I returned it for a G&T, the waiter assured me the demijon had only been opened...

Nearly ten years ago under madam Dolly's ownership and management this was the place, possibly the only place, to get decent food and service in Ettukala, even if the bill of fare, with only three or four token Lankan dishes, smacked a little of Alpine arrogance. I ate here in February 2014 and again recently on September 19 and 29... More

It's very difficult to find good stake in Srilanka. This place has the best stake. I tried beef stake. The potatoes were mixed with bacon. So it was very tasty. Service is very good.only thing lacking is view of the beach. But you can forget about the view when you start testing this amazing food. One of my favourite restaurants... More

I will admit we came to this restaurant because of the other reviews, and we were certainly not disappointed. The staff was notably and impressively attentive, we commented several times that the service level was very high. The pepper steak, however, was absolutely brilliant. After three weeks in Sri Lanka I wanted a nice steak, and it was tasty, cooked... More
