5* food, and service, 3* prices.

We have eaten in a number of 5* establishments as we travel, including Sri Lanka. This restaurant can compete with the best of them for the quality of the food it serves, its service and the atmosphere it creates. Take your own alcohol - establishments in Sri Lanka within 100 yds of school or... read more

As a Sri Lankan living outside the country I was looking forward to having some good sea food and we weren't disappointed. The portion sizes are pretty good and we were happy to share a sea food platter and baked crab. One thing though is that the food though delicious as it is we felt could be slightly spiced to...

Best meal I've had in this country of amazing cuisine. I had vegetarian Sri Lankan rice and curry. My friend had Western style rice and vegetables. Wow, so tasty. The restaurant is also beautiful. The prices are the norm for this area. There were tables of Sri Lankans as well as tables of Westerners.

We were staying up the road at the Mount Lavinia Hotel. Just fancied a more intimate dining experience. We certainly found it in this delightful restaurant. The presentation is first class, the ambiance calm - amongst the lively Sri Lankan background. The food was very well priced. I can recommend the Creme Brûlée Parcels. The staff were keen to point...

We went here for dinner after arriving in Mount Lavinia following a long afternoon of travel. The reviews were great... the pictures looked good... (Unfortunately the TripAdvisor Map did not point out the right location, but we were able to find signs along the road to lead us the rest of the way.) We arrived, and the staff was extremely...

In fact I've been to this restaurant with my husband on countless occasions as well as big family groups a couple of times. The food is always top notch and for me I find I'm struggling to finish some dishes as the servings are generous. Extensive menu which is a treat if you're craving a change from the local cuisine....

My friends and I ate 3 meals there and each time the food and service was unfailingly top rate. I very highly recommend the prawns served on a celeriac mash. Simply scrumptious!

I have to say this is the best restaurant we dined during our 4-days trip. Too bad that we found out about this place on our 3rd day. Great food and presentation. The only problem we encountered was the flies buzzing around but the staff was able to manage it. They even thought of swapping it infront of us. Wine... More

once again we returned to Sri Lanka in March and again we had all of our dinners at this restaurant. It is by far the best restaurant in Sri Lanka and the staff are fabulous. The food and its presentation is absolutely fabulous - if you are in the Mount Lavinia area you must have dinner at this restaurant. We... More
