The service and welcome We received was the highlight of the evening. The atmosphere is subdued and classy without being stuffy. It was a relaxed meal as there were only four tables occupied in the restaurant. The waiters had time to really take care of us and even joke with the kids. The food was good and a Nice change...

By far the best high end dinner experience in Sri Lanka. The service was attentive, the manager was helpful, the setting was sublime & quiet. The food quality was superb. The selection of breads & dips was very good.. The guest chef was presiding in the kitchen that evening - it was a treat to savour the lobster - full... More

What I really wanted was devilled prawns and it wasn't on the menu but the staff there were so accommodating and they prepared it for me. I never expected it to taste as good as it did. Every mouthful was rich in flavour. Quite possibly the 2nd best meal I had during my two weeks stay in Sri Lanka. They... More

We came to Sri Lanka on our honeymoon and have spent the last few days in Negombo. We are not staying at Jetwing Beach but were seeking a romantic meal for our last night in Sri Lanka. We walked into Jetwing Beach and were warmly welcomed by Niroshau and Sudesh who were our waiters for the evening. Niroshau assured us... More

We ate here 2 nights ago. The surroundings within the restaurant are very pleasing. The staff are eager to please and very attentive. The food was absolutely top notch, no complaints, praise only. To start we shared the baked crab. Mains continued in the seafood theme. A wonderful experience

The restaurant is in a hotel owned by a large group - something we try to avoid. All the trappings of an expensive hotel were in place but only the restaurant was of interest to us. We dined outside overlooking a large garden being used for a wedding party. As a pre-booked party of six we were surprised that we... More

We stayed at the hotel and stumbled upon this hidden gem of a fine dining restaurant. My wife and I were surprised at how wonderful the food was both in taste and presentation. The service was impeccable as well and the entire meal with wine and beer was around $70 for both of us! Amazing. !!

What a superb chef and great staff. If you are looking for a top class restaurant that is also great value for money look no further than the Black Coral. My husband and I visited twice during our recent holiday in Negumbo and on both occasions received wonderful service and an excellent meal. Thank you to Niroshan and all staff... More

We headed back to our hotel after a disastrous dining experience on the strip. We were cross and hungry. There was a big electric storm going on and we were soaked....we entered this den of tranquility....sublime service.....delicious food and somehow the world was OK again. Thank you Jetwing Beach for this charming dining venue.
