Yeah, basically it's ok! Nothing special, but worth the money! A lot of western food, fish is quiet good.

Our tuk tuk driver recommended this restaurant to my husband and I. We did not know what to expect...the waiter told us we had the option of the menu or to choose from the selection of fresh fish. Chilli pork dish on the menu was fab and the chef in charge of the fresh fish cooked us fresh prawns. The... More

The restaurant is the same high standard and they always have a range of fresh fish. They have been unlucky as the beach has eroded due to incompetence on the Governments part. Well priced.

Great meal with friends, nice venue right on the sea front. Staff were quick and attentive. The menu was extensive, over 100 items. Meal was tasty and came quickly. Venue had a nice atmosphere, would recommend.

Everything was good. The food, the stuff, location and prices are OK. We recommend mostly the fish. In every night they have barbecue with fresh fish. We eat lobster, coral fish, butter fish, red sniper and all was delicious.

We visited this place a few times. The menu looks pretty much the same as many of the other restauranta but one night we took the chance to order a pizza not knowing what to get. But we were positively surprised. Can definitely recommend the sicilian version. Great crusty bread and nice taste. The location is perfect.

Albeit not an easy restaurant to access from the beach (we waded through thigh deep waves and felt like a couple of pirates), it is a very good place to have lunch by the beach. We ordered the Jumbo Prawns and a Lobster and the wait staff brought the live lobster to our table to get our okay on the... More

The worst service in Sri Lanka, good fresh fish. Ridiculious italian meal. Too expensive for that. Cheap tourist clients. Disapointing experience.

We ordered garlic toast and two main courses. The garlic toast arrived after about 15 minutes and was exactly what it sounds like, a slice of white bread with garlic on it. Nothing special at all unfortunately. After about 50 minutes wait for the main courses I asked out waiter when we could expect the food and his answer was... More

Great place, great food, and very friendly stuff. We had a lobster and the waiter there actually bring us a fresh one and took a photo of us. Also very good decor. The food itself was amazing, it was cooked very thoroughly. It's not easy to access it from the beach, but trust me this restaurant should not be passed... More
