Excellent coffee; the best I have found in Negombo! Good menu. Food well prepared, tasty and served relatively quickly. However, waiter rude and frankly offensive which is a shame because it means I shall not return!

I simply love this place. Owner is an Italian and wife is Srilankan. They are very friendly. Location is great! It's situated next to the beach. Fridays they have live music from 8pm onwards. They have home made ice cream. Very cheap as well. Home made cookies are an ache! Their spaghetti bolonaise is very tasty. I always ask them... More

They pay attention to how you want the level of spice in the Sri Lankan selections. Tasty and carefully prepared too. Very accommodating staff. Nice sea view. Our favorite restaurant in Negombo.

A lovely beachfront café where we stopped twice for the delicious ice cream and milkshakes. The café is in a beautiful setting and is perfect for spending time on the beach. The staff were friendly and the service was really fast. I would highly recommend the Ebony and Ivory.

We ate good bruchetta, and a nice salad with chicken / tuna fish! A little bit off road, away from street sounds, view on the beach..

Have visited severa times with various friends of varying ages and genders. Had many items from the menu from steak to pizza, from pasta to soup and all has been good and tasty. A bit more expensive than Kamlo and a negative (could be a positive to some) bring your own alcohol. Above average waiting times considering they have not... More

Only had light meals and snacks, but everything was delicious. Great choice of cakes and pastries. Good coffee and milk shakes. Great shady setting, virtually on the beach. Lovely breeze. Free WiFi.
