The place has a wide variety of seafood, served Lankan, Chinese or Western style. They also serve other Western dishes, salads and soups. The place gets quite crowded with tourists and families all visiting Negombo, so you're assured the food is fresh. As they tend to get crowded, the service is a little slow. You need to exercise a little... More

We went for dinner and it did take 50mins to get our meals after waiting also initially for drinks. I have read the owner respond to all the constructive comments from travellers on trip advisor and not once accept any feedback. Food was good, not great, many dishes were un available, the staff were apologetic for a wait..which I believe... More

Here they really need to do something about the cleanliness, it’s horrible to get drinks in moldy glass, and after that - I wonder how the hygiene is in the kitchen!! And when the price of a seafood platter is the same as at the Airport Gateway Hotel (Old Airport Garden), it is the shameless with that standard, should be... More

I don't know what makes it so noisy, but this place is so noisy and kind of dark. I wish they can (will) fix those.

Not that posh, but more towards local - but by the beach and if the weather is good this is where you want to have your beer. Decent food options.
