While here in Negombo, we walked each morning. A bit of exercise and some shell collecting. On the way back to the hotel we would stop for coffee. Good European coffee. Friendly staff, chatty!

Walked into the restaurant and was not attended. Staff and service really bad , and the way they talk to the customers is horrendous!

It was the last place we ate before we went home to Europe. And it was very good. We got the food fast and it was tasty. They even had real olive oil which was great for a change.

Had a very good fondue . However it took a long time after ordering to get it ( close to an hour, but maybe that's normal for Fondue. Also enjoyed the Vege Cheese Pasta ( some Swiss/German name for it that I can't remember)
