“Very nice place, excellent food and very friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

A perfect place to have a beautiful dinner "a taste from the sky". The people are very friendly thx to Mr. Karunasena and the waiter from Kandy, such places makes shure that we will cone back to Colombo. Congratulation to Sri Lanka for entering in the Final in the ICC.

“Semondu at the Dutch Hospital”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

Great international cuisine at most reasonable prices (2 X 2 courses for Rs. 3500). Sri Lanka-influenced interior decor is stunning. Staff from the Manager down are friendly, helpful and give you a wonderful dining experience. White linen and silver service just adds to the enjoyment of this restaurant.
Overall, The Dutch Hospital provides another tremendous venue for a night out in Colombo.

“Great modern and design restaurant in Colombo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

The Semondu (or Semonduo?) is located in front of the WTC at the Old Dutch Hospital. It has great local and international food. The food is fine and well prepared (nouvelle cuisine style), with very high quality products. We all enjoyed our foods and drinks. The design of the place is very nice as are the changing color theme.

The only downside is the temperature in the restaurant. It was freezing and we were not the only guests annoyed by the cold. Take a jacket with you or something warm. Staff could be a bit more friendly as well. Maybe it goes together?
