First time I have ever left a negative review. Service was awful, food poor, overpriced, no atmosphere. Waiters showed my wife a lack of respect. Service was slow but more importantly rude. Would strongly advice not to eat here in, was by fair the worst experience in Sri Lanka.

This place is tone of my favorite place in Negombo area. The food is superb and the place has a nice and calm view of the ocean. The restaurant is clean and neat. The staff is also very helpful. But I must say that the price is too much. So not happy with the prices, other than that it's a... More

The food was average. Service wasn't terrible, but wasn't that great. Wifi is very good, especially compared to other places. Great view!

The food was ok but didn't set my world on fire. We ordered a fish platter between two. The fish was dry and overlooked. The service was extremely slow. They had a live band playing that looked like they wanted to be anywhere else but there. All in all I wouldn't rush back. Plenty of better restaurants along the same... More

Attending a conference in a nearby hotel, I joined a bunch of old friends for a long and excellent meal in King Coconut. Under normal circumstances, the place would not be particularly cozy or elegant, but the atmosphere this evening was wonderful. And the ample seafood was fresh and very tasty and the wine was appropriately chilled. Very good service... More

Wonderful service, wonderful food. We ordered the seafood platters for dinner. They were a combination of fish, prawns, lobster with rice, coleslaw and chips. The food was well prepare and served, ample serving sizes and fantastic quality. A real must if you are in the area.
