To celebrate our anniversary we decided to take the family out to dinner at this new (for me) place in Colombo. I decided to book the table. The website was very slow and very unfriendly. I had to use my computer savvy nephew to book the table. He also felt that the website was poor. Then we arrived with our large group we found we were given an inside table. What little we saw in the website showed dining facing the sea. Despite initial reluctance by the junior staff the Asst. Restaurant Manager Upul gave us a sea facing table. then onwards the service, ordering and quality of food was excellent Only small criticism is that coffee could have been warmer or hot. this was soon corrected and we enjoyed the dinner and facilities of this well appointed hotel and restaurant .
overall the staff especially Mr Upul was very helpful.
