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

Was first introduced to Bijou by my friend Dave. He took me there to have the beef steak, claiming it to be the best he has had in Sri Lanka. It was good. I have been there a couple of times since, and can't complain. My guess is the other food on the menu too is good. The staff are... More

It's really difficult to find great steaks in Sri Lanka, they are not big Steak eaters and most of their beef comes in cubes and goes in a curry so unless you are dining at a 5* hotel or specialist Steak house you are likely to be very disappointed if you order steak and will likely end up with something...
