“The best French toast!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

Breakfast was included in our accommodation rate. We muddled through the menu options and although not everything we ordered arrived to the table (ie we both thought we ordered fruit platters but got one platter and one juice) all the food was delicious. The French toast made with local bread was a stand out as was the omelette. And it was nice to have some yoghurt with fresh fruit.

I'm regret that we didn't try the dinner menu, but the staff were a little pushy about us eating there as we headed out for a drink so we went elsewhere.

“Attentive Staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Dining available either inside or on a covered veranda. The menu was varied. Ate here twice and could not recommend the fish option which was not to my taste. All other dishes were more than satisfactory.

“Excellent food, beautiful establishment”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

The title pretty much says it all. The nasi goreng was fantastic, the service was impeccable, and it's simply a beautiful place. Definitely the place I will take visiting friends and family to impress them.

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

Myself and a friend went out to Sri Lanka for a month for a medical student elective, but 2 of our friends were joining us half way through the trip and we decided to save this restaurant until they arrived because every time we walked past it in the Fort, it looked amazing!

Deco did not disappoint. It was a little bit of luxury we were craving. Our waiter was very attentive. We liked that the chef came out of the kitchen to say hello and explain the menu if we had any questions.

The food was lovely. I had a prawn salad to start, tuna for main and a passion fruit crème brûlée to finish! All were amazing! I could not fault the food. The crème brûlée was to die for. The brownie also was delicious!

I would highly recommend this restaurant if you would like a little bit of luxury injected in to your holiday or you need a break from curries!
