Tie ambience was great and the food excellent. Nice chilled Tiger beer with great food was a welcome lunch. The manager Mr. Anton Subasinghe was easily available and was seen even assisting his staff in serving customers. The only problem was the place was infested with house flies. The huge fans couldn't keep them out. This could be a nuisance... More

Unfortunately brought here by our driver for our last lunch in Sri Lanka. Wifi not working (no big deal) but waiter was stroppy when we first asked whether they had wifi for us to use, and then rude when we asked to clarify whether the 'King coconut' open wifi (which was working) was available to us. Anyway, food wasn't great... More

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
