Absolutely wonderful food and service at a ridiculously cheap price.

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. !!

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

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.

First thing first; the service of this hotel restaurant is stunning, thumbs up for the staff. When we talk about the food it is just average and too expensive. This restaurant gets good ratings because of their own hotel guests. Those people never go outside. We spend one week in Negombo and ate at much better places with superb food... More

The food here is lovely and the service amazing. We were on our honeymoon and we weren't even staying at the Jetwing beach but we were treated as special as hotel guests. Steak and cheeseboard are amazing. I got given a stuffed toy elephant on the first visit and we were serenaded and on our second visit, we had candles... More

Great gastronomic restaurant with good wines. We had a special guest chef, using local products; it was an excellent fusion food. Staff is good.

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...

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
