Excellent fresh local seafood combined with old classics. Very flexible breakfast choice and good lunchtime snacks. Ask the staff during the day of the seafood availability for that evening and get the pick of the catch. The staff are happy to tweak and cater for your individual taste. Best food to date in Sri Lanka
