Music too loud not overly comfortable. A bar with no real outstanding features for me. If you want a lively time it is okay but I wouldn't rush back myself. Maybe it's an age thing!

Fantastic food, and great service. We ended up eating here twice as the food was excellent and the service was always simple and efficient.

This pub is great, we visited twice during our stay in Negombo and found that the place had a relaxed atmosphere, amazing food and very friendly staff. Our waiter, Sameera was fantastic and the next time we are in Negombo we will be back.

a fine place to go for a couple of beers, nothing inspirational but it has a good mix of locals and tourists.

Only bar open on a weekday late into the night. Big screen TV to watch the football matches with drinks. Had a healthy crowd going even when we were leaving! Space is limited so might be difficult to get in when there's a crowd.

The food was nice even though it took quite a while to prepare as in about an hour. So just go a little before you are hungry. Friendly staff and nice atmosphere.

When you get home sick, this is the place to go. My panini was really good. And my husband said this place had the best burger. It was reasonably priced.
