“Excellent Sri Lankan Cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

Sri Lankan rice and curry is about the best we've had in any Sri Lankan restaurant. You get a good selection of vegetable curries and I chose to have the fish while my partner had a prawn curry; its absolutely fantastic. Do not miss out on the coconut Ice cream; god knows where they found this, but it is truly a delightful desert served in a king coconut; its home made by the hotel Chef. My partner tried the Cinnamon ice cream and it was lovely. they serve a generous portion of 3 big scoops

“not expensive but very disappointing”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2013

expecting this to be a bit of lux, but somehow felt as if I was in some spanish resort. the bar was really sad - just a wooden sideboard with 1 guy desperately trying to keep up with drinks orders - the most expensive cocktails we found on the island - so that's saying something.
The food was just Ok, but what was really poor in a place like this was the curried crab was obviously frozen, a trickle of watery meat - which was cold by the time I got to eat it - as they didn't have enough implements to break up & eat the crab, so I had to wait a good 15 mins before I could eat what was already in front of me.
