Our first night in Sri Lanka, this restaurant was recommended by one of the flight crew. The location (on the beach) is great, the food was good, reasonably priced and we had really good service. Very friendly - would go there again.

Friendly staff , pretty good service. Meal was inexpensive and good value . Two of us had a grilled seafood platter with fish, lobster, prawns and calamari. Sat outside the restaurant. Good value for money but decor needs a makeover

I was there twice for dinner, the crew is really welcoming. The food was not the cheapest in town but it's worth to try out. I loved the devilled prawns, fresh and spicy!
