The Lion Lager is alway cold and the quality of the food is consistent. Good place for lunch or dinner.

“Service and food quality like no other!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

If you are looking for good Sri Lankan curry, attentive service and a quality experience to highlight your appreciation of local cuisine then this is the one to miss! Our experience was dreadful. Only one of the two drinks arrived. Only one of the two meals arrived. The menu was depleted - we could not get what we asked for. When the first curry did arrive (an egg curry), it consisted of two boiled eggs floating in a light curry broth. The pompadoms had to be ordered separately and there were no condiments available. The belated arrival of the second curry, (prawn curry), turned out to be the same watery curry broth with several prawns floating in it - still in their shells of course. I can compliment the establishment on the beach frontage and the white rice was cooked. Seriously, give this one a miss - cross the road and go to one of the more local establishments!

“Seafood heaven!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

We'd asked our tour guide to recommend a good seafood restaurant for lunch on our way down to Galle and they certainly got this one right!!

The view was amazing as we were virtually sat on the beach!

The food was fabulous and very reasonably priced for such an amazing spread!! We had the 6,000 rupee sharing seafood plater, which consisted of a Bouillabaisse soup for starters, grilled lobster, crab, calamari & jumbo prawns with salad & french fries for main and a lovely refreshing fruit salad for dessert.

Service was very good and the manager was very friendly. Would definitely visit again!

“Bad food - Mostly uncooked”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

The food was a complete let down. Very bad coffee shakes, uncooked rice, charred beef fry and soggy french fries. In addition to, if this wasn't enough the place is filled with mosquitoes. This place is a complete waste of money.

“Lunch on the beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

A great place to have lunch or dinner. Service was great and the food plentiful and tasty. I had mixed chop suey and it was jammed packed full of goodness. I even got some crab in the dish. The prices are a little expensive but the quality is good. The view and the beach side tables compensate for the run down decor of the restaurant.
