Had a quick snack here yesterday. The service was very enthusiastic and the view is spectacular. All we had was a plate of french fries and a toasted cheese and tomato. Nothing to brag about. They were quite pushy about us visiting their souvenir shop though.

Has a great location next to the river but only limited tables with views and all lost in the dark anyway. A good range of food although no pork which is a little strange in Sri Lanka. The standard of food was very good and service was very good.

While walking down, we stumbled upon AIDA. It's a really clean and quiet place. The food and drinks are good, they can do much better though. The staff is really friendly and helpful. Keep up the good work. Cheers!

the place is on river front, should be nice ambience for a quiet dinner. We went for lunch on a hot afternoon, even then the ambience looked good, though hot. (Could do with a few more fans in the afternoon) Food - both seafood/continental and local Sri Lankan was good. (Local Sri Lankan meal takes 45 mins to prepare though...... More

Arrived a bit late in the evening. Ordered prawns and deviled Sear fish...both like leather...waiter came up with full plates in front of him and said 'a bit dry' Sandpaper was moister...so go anywhere else unless they get their act together...please, please please...be careful as on this experience...this would put you off Sri Lankan restaurants

Open-air restaurant on the lakeside serving à la carte seafood and some western meals. Slightly above average price, but good quality food, a nice setting and good service.
