This a must visit place for sea food enthusiasts. After a lot of deliberation we entered the restaurant. One can choose their own fish or pick from the available love lobsters. The pricing is a bit on the expensive side, however it is the best sea food we had in our vacation. The service didn't disappoint either.

Very good location near the beach and the main road. Big building. Good design. Nice garden. Food is delicious with very large portion. Service is quick. Don't like the restaurant much because the waiters are pushing you to order seafood although we said my partner is allergy with prawn and crab several times before order.

Nice view upstair, good seafood but serve very cold! Expensive. They should not allow smoking in the area! Fresh juice is good.

We enjoyed 2 splendid meals here & nothing was too much trouble for the very amiable staff. The menu is very varied with choices to suit most tastea, the fresh fish & seafood was especially pleasing.

Very nice location and at arrival the waiters are very friendly. Even if it was busy they find us a table.

The food is good but we had to return our dishes twice because the food was cold. The service is slow so be warned. I ordered the mixed sea food and liked it but as I mentioned it was not even room temperature.

Everyone seems to swear by it in the area so we were really looking forward to having a great dinner. Strangely there was just another booked table throughout the evening which was a surprise given the recommendation and the space available. Service was quite mediocre and careless and food was very disappointing. Apart from being fresh and you choosing your... More

Our guide brought us here worried about our sensitive western tourist stomachs (not realising this was our 5th week in Sri Lanka). 1400 and a half hour wait for rice and curry! Are they having a laugh?! 200rupees for a beer is a good deal but none of us drink so... meh. Great views. Incredibly slow service. They tried to... More
