The owner was a remarkable man that made us want to return because of... More

Has been here already twice. Very cozy and nice restaurant. Warm welcoming stuff - manager himself welcomes guests and checking throughout the visit how is everything. He is very friendly, communicative and polite. We didn't get chance even to complain about mosquitoes when it got dark - he put the special aroma sticks protection for us - they really work....

Really good service, close to the beach, wonderful service and good prices. We chose it because there was a 7 foot high dinosaur (replica) in the front yard. Since I like dinosaurs, I thought this must be a good place, and we picked it from the many other beach front restaurants. I had just finished a good day of diving,... More

We ate chicken Spaghetti Carbonarra and Lasagne food was tasty. But service was slow we were badly hungry when food came to the table. The place looks old, this place badly need a renovation.

This came on a thali - a kind of metal plate with many small sections. Each section was filled with something delicious. A whole range of taste explosions. There was so... More

Nice setting on the beach, food average for my taste. Pushy staff regarding tips, put me off so I won't go there again.

The restaurant look more like a house converted into a restaurant. When we went, several locals were there and the service, for once, was correct and with a smile. The food is quite good and the ambiance nice. Just note taht it is a very simple restaurant so don't expect an outstanding setting... at the other hand, you can enjoy... More

Tasty food and friendly employees. Much cleaner than "normal" restaurants in Sri Lanka. I will be back.

3/4 meals were served, the other after we had finished. Pizza was unbeatable. Service painfully slow though staff friendly. Don't recommend at all
