I don't normally write reviews, but having seen a rather unkind, unfair and lukewarm review, I thought I should.
The food is limited but it's limited to some old favourites and excellent local cuisine. I was in a party of 6, all seasoned travellers and all more than happy with the food served. The curry's were excellent, lots of fish, coconut and even a pineapple chicken curry!
The service was attentive without being overbearing. Nothing was too much trouble.
It was worth the journey from Colombo which is the only downside of visiting the Waterside.
