We ate in this restaurant on three occasions during our stay in Sri Lanka. This is Fine Dining at its best. Every dish we tried was excellent. I particularly enjoyed the crab and the sea bass whilst my husband liked the prawns with ravioli. The passion fruit sorbet was excellent as a palate cleanser as was the more unusual tamarind... More

We spent the first two nights of our honeymoon at the Jetwing Beach Hotel in Negombo and on the first night decided to dine at the Black Coral Restaurant. We had read on Tripadvisor that it was quite special and we were definitely not disappointed. We ended up having a 6 course meal as we were given apperitifs, breads, sorbets... More

My partner and i were recommended this restaurant by another couple at our hotel. I am so glad we went... we were seated outside in our own booth which was extremely private and romantic. The service was excellent and the food was beautiful. I had the soup to start and the sea bass and potatos for main, it was beautiful... More

My husband and I made a booking in the beachside Black Coral Restaurant for our first wedding anniversary. From start to finish the waiters Niroshan and Sudesh treated us like VIPs. Niroshan was very helpful answering any questions we had when ordering and we were in food heaven with our meals. We were treated to unexpected extras such as cold... More

Had a couple of meals here while staying at the hotel. The service was very good and the food of good quality and well presented. We ate outside in one of the "tented" tables, which provided privacy. A romantic setting for a couple.

My partner and I went out to have a romantic last night in Sri Lanka. The service was amazing. The appetiser was fantastic. We were served complimentary bread rolls, and chocolates throughout the night. We were handed face towels, cool at the start of the night, and warm at the end. However the main meals were disappointing!! Very intimate and... More

Black Coral in Jetwing Beach is a very good restaurant,with a nice menu and winecard. Dining outside is recommended (very private atmosphere). The food and the service are excellent,but if you prefer seafood,I recommend Restaurant "Lellama" in Jetwing Sea!

After staying in the far from 5 star "The Beach" which was a massive let down - see my other review. We decided to have our final meal here based on other TA reviews (thanks to all) and I'm really glad we did! The food is absolutely brilliant. And the service was the best we had in all of Sri...

As well as the delicious food it was the little extras and the attention to detail which made dining at the black coral a true experience. After arriving back at the hotel late one evening we were really just looking for something to eat. We were welcomed to the black coral in a professional but friendly way with a cool... More
