average meal

I asked for rice and curry and was told they had ran out. The service was ok but the meal took a long time to arrive. The portions were very small, I had to order an extra portion of rice to fill me up. The food was nice tasting though.

A family run restaurant that has a charm all of its own. The food is very good, the service is charming and the decor is ok too. All at a very inexpensive price. None are world class, but the sum of the parts add to more than you expect hence the excellent rating.

This small restaurant was advised to us by the owner of the guesthouse where we stayed, not far from it. It was a very good tip ! It does not look very attractive from the outside, small, opened on the beach road. But everything was fine : family owned business, with a very friendly service , very good food made... More

This is a very nice local family run restaurant. The food is spicy and very well cooked. The staff are very helpful, the service of food can be a little slow but it is well worth waiting for. Far better than Lords without the hype and nonsense.

My husband and I visited this restaurant tonight and whilst we liked the friendly festive feel of the place and thought the menu offered good choice and value for money we were a bit disappointed with the slow service (over 45 mins to receive our meals) considering we ordered fairly simple pasta dish and omelette. It was nice food when... More

We stumbled upon this small family run restaurant and were pleasantly surprised by the delicious, home cooked food that we enjoyed. They have both western & Sri Lankan food and we particularly enjoyed the seafood( crabs, lobster, king prawns & calamari). Because only the friendly owner, Joseph and his wife do the cooking, you might want to place your order... More

We noticed this smart little restaurant earlier in the day and liked the look of it - we were not disappointed. Petit is a very friendly, famliy-run place, simply but beautifully furnished with a reasonably extensive menu. The food was great, if a little blandly orientated towards western palates, but just ask for spicy if you like the local food... More
