An amazing view.

It is pricey and the prawns were sandy. The view from the restaurant is however amazing. The staff's helpful and all that. However the food was not bad excluding the prawns.

This is an average restaurant, serving over-priced food (like all others at Negombo Beach), but with a location to die for, directly on the beach at Negombo! It is basically a roof (temporary/aluminum?) and a floor serving food on the beach. Food is not bad, but a bit pricey. Service is wonderful, but very, very late! They serve only wine... More

I think this place could do so much better. It's got a prime seafront spot and seems to attract a lot of local clients. The food is ok. We asked for a small portion for our toddler only to be told only pizza was available for children. Not sure why cant they be flexible. The service is so slow after... More

Very over priced for the quality of food , which was not great . Very long time to be served . We hardly ate something at end as we ordered seafood but didn't seem to be fresh . Not recommend specially with family as there is nothing for kids to order

Not good experience here mainly because of an almost hour long wait for our lunch. Plus there was a big stage nearby on the beach with really bad, loud, live music in addition to loud radio in the restaurant, plus it was too hot and some of the other clientele were unfriendly. I think Negombo prices are higher than elsewhere... More

I traveled Sri Lanka with a fairly large group of 18 while building houses with Habitat for Humanity and we ate dinner here one night. It wasn't our first choice, but they were able to fairly quickly put together a table for us, outside on the sand. NOTE: you will most likely get bitten by a lot of mosquitoes, so... More

Hi There thank you for visiting us. We strive for best service and food quality. Mosquito issue is common around Negombo and it is not within our control. However we have taken measures to eliminate that within our restaurant area as much as possible And thank you for your comment on Pizzas - its my favorite too! More

This restaurant was recommended so we decided to give it a try. We were put on a table on the sand outside the main eating area which was ok with us. Our waiter was surly and quite unhelpful. Had to ask for cuterley as table was not laid properly. He seemed to want to serve us as quickly as possible.... More
