The view is really nice over the lake, food is oké, it is not bad, but it Just isn't exciting. We have eaten there two Times, lunch and diner. But you better go buy at a local store.

The restaurant is popular with holidaymakers and expats, a lot of them regulars, as well as a few locals. The menu is quite extensive, and covers the familiar Sri Lankan mix of Western, seafood, some... More

It's really hidden and if we hadn't have got told where it was we wouldn't have found it. It's a beautiful lit up garden on the sparkling river front. We have never had a poor meal.

Chicken soup is spot on but other dishes the quality varies. Service is slow when restaurant is busy. Prices are competitive.

We ordered mixed seafood and I espetially enjoyed king prawns. They were better than the lobster :) I ate ice cream at the end and enjoyit as well. Patio is very beautiful with couple of really cute kittens walking around (they didn't bother us at all), and the view at the river was great. There was also a guy who... More
