The atmosphere, service and food is a pleasant treat if you are staying at nearby hotels and need a change. My meal was well prepared, tasty and served in a timely manner. Good value. I will go back without hesitation.

Unfortunately unlike many reviews our experience was a negative one. The food was trying to be something of a fine dining experience but the chefs skill was lacking and couldn't quite pull of the interesting ideas. Some of the flavours combinationskin were nice but the fish and calamari especially was way overcooked, to the point it was a strain to... More

What a delight! If you ever find yourself in this area do yourself a favour and try out this restaurant. Clean, quiet and a great atmosphere. Suberb menu, with a wonderful variety of dishes. The food was excellent! Hope to see you soon!

I did not like the service which was quick enough but the stuff looked unfriendly. The portions were small (I had mushroom soup, my friends had beef ). The very moment they understood we would not have any drinks they did not pay any attention to us so we had to ask for the bill twice.

Our first night in Sri Lanka. We found this place reviewed in a guide book, although not well known. Food was exquisitely presented and delicious. Service was attentive but not intrusive. The menu is seafood/fusion/Mediterranean. They have wine but you can also BYO. All round just a fantastic relaxing dining experience. Will be back before we leave Sri Lanka.

Staying at Mount Lavinia Hotel, this place is just down the road, and if you have done your share of Seafood Cove dinners on the beach, this is a great alternative to otherwise VERY average menu and food at the Governor's restaurant and terrace at Mount Lavinia (if you are not into buffet dining which is rather good). This place... More

If you are after something other than curry in Colombo, this place is highly recommended. Definitely worth a second visit

Quite small but intimate setting because of this the service is excellent. Try the six soup sampler so nicely served in dainty cups.The prawns in coconut batter are super and steaks cooked to perfection. Very experienced staff who will help with selection - seafood platter is excellent and you can have your personal air conditioning unit.Place is spotless and you... More
