There are at least 8 waiters looking around for something to do but it takes 20 minutes to get a drink from the fridge that I can see! And zero beers. GrAt location though.

We visited this restaurant twice during our stay on Mount Lavinia beach. Day 1 - excellent service, lots of amazing food. Smoked Seer fish, jumbo prawns with veggies and couscous, coconut prawns - all on point. Our waiter was sweet and had good food recommendations, and the drinks came relatively fast. Highly recommend the tamarind martini! It's thick and spicy... More

This establishment abuts on the beach with clean sand and no plastic bottles. It was ideal for a completely brain dead last day on the beach. Nice touch - there are showers and foot bathing facilities if you want to wash the sand off your feet. The service is adequate though the waitress got our order for drinks wrong (two... More

We visited this restaurant for drinks, lunch and dinner. We loved the colonial style, relaxing background music and wonderful beach setting. Also they let us use their sun loungers on the beach for free if we bought drinks etc from the restaurant. Prices were a little expensive, particularly as an extra 10% was added for service and another 12% tax,... More

Went there with a big group of family and we had a great time. The food was lovely but the drinks could be better. Too much crushed ice in the frozen margaritas wasn't the best idea! Will recommend their hot buttered cuttlefish with drinks and the grilled Modha as a main! Overall had a wonderful experience.

Very friendly personnel but had to wait for them long. Food is nothing special. the best thing about the place is the view. we had to go to that restaurant because there are not many of them on the beach. prices are relatively high and service is always included even if you don't like it.
