Why does this place get away with charging an extra 25% on top of their already inflated prices? I am sure the food was great, but we walked out after reading the taxes page on the menu. I paid 225 rupees for a huge serve of fresh grilled tuna at Dephanie guesthouse where we stayed in Negombo & just couldn't... More

Spended first night out in Negombo and also our last night before our flight home. I guess this one is best place in area. Tasty food and plenty of it. Cosy and friendly service and staff really do you feel to be welcomed. Cocktails and drinks are also good. Can suggest to go and spend there few joyful hours!

We had amazing prawns (they were enormous) and wine here. Sitting outside in the courtyard is great. Nice server and when I walked back in the restaurant to use bathroom I saw the many other rooms for gallery spaces - we weren't there on an event night but I imagine it's great place then, as well as to hang out...

We visited Lords 3 times during our stay in Negombo and on each occasion it lived up to its Tripadvisor No.1 rating. The food and service were excellent and the prices reasonable. There are a number of other good restaurants nearby but Lords is "Top Dog" (sorry Martin couldn't resist).
