The service at this restaurant was excellent & the food & setting very good, however this came at a price, I would recommend a visit but would suggest that there are better value restaurants in the area.

We went there for dinner, the restaurant was empty and boring with no music. The food was a lot below expectations. Prices are high for the quality of food served, but It is a has a nice view.

It's a nice location to have food. Taste is nice. Only problem we faced is limited options for vegetarian dishes. But what we had was good taste.

Very nice location with greatl views to the river. For vegetarians limited choice as a lot of seafood is on the menu, but pasta was good but overpriced with 950 LKR. Very attentive and all trained staff.
