We went there so drinks and to watch the sunset. The ambient of the restaurant is amazing - very modern and fancy. We got a table right at the beach side and watched the sun go down with the locals playing on the beach and flying kites.

We visited with friends and got there early before the restaurant was very full. In spite of this, we waited ages for our meals. They are just not capable of handling many people. Also, the staff are poorly trained and unhelpful. This is such a pity as the location is great, the concept good and the food not too bad.

The hotel we stayed in recommended this restaurant. We had dinner there once and didn't go there after that. Our waiter looked bored and forgot things (or did not pay enough attention to our orders?). Other waiter took his place after he saw that we were poorly served. He was nice and helpful. The restaurant lacked local food like all... More

Terrible Service & Food Is Always arrives Late. This has been the one of the problems which the restaurant management cannot solve. Food is ok & cannot comment much. If u have kids better they have something before they get to this Restaurant.

The best thing about this place is parking. It's all down hill from there. Took about 1 hr for the food to arrive. Waiters are clueless. A huge pile of mushy crabs fit for the crabs? Steak was like eating the sole of my shoe. Fried till it died twice and absolutely unseasoned. Chicken was ok. Prawn was ok. Oh... More

Nice place near the beach, good interior and design, but unfriendly and sometimes angry waiters staff. Long food and drinks waiting time. Cocktails are served really warm. No air conditioner or fan. Good life music and delicious food. Please, do something with your waiters — and everything will be ok! Buy lash if it need!))) I don't recommend it to... More

Stopped here for lunch one afternoon. Waited a long time for someone to come over to take our order, even though the place was almost empty. We asked if they could alter one of the sandwiches on their menu so we could get it without meat since we’re vegetarians. No, not possible. They can only give us exactly what’s on... More

It's a nice place near the Negambo beach. Behind the restaurant they have a quite a large sand area where my child was playing until food gets ready. It's really good for sea food. The baked crab plate was nicely presented. chef's salad plate is another very good plate we ordered. better you go with prior booking. otherwise you have... More

This place is on the beach and open terrace like space. Quite large space. Good for families. However food was disappointing. We ordered the baked crab which was not flavourful. I could hardly get any crab flavour. The batter fried chillie cuttle fish was very good. The only saving grace. This place serves only beer and wine as alcohol. No... More

We had a bad dinner somewhere else, then went here but not really hungry anymore, just wanted a beer first. They were very unhappy with that. There were more tables free, but they told us to go to the bar if we were just drinking beer. We just wanted to start with a beer and later order some food, but... More
