On the main street in Negombo sits this nice restaurant which was recommended to us by a travel guide. Glad we took his advise. Food well cooked and really large portions. Well worth a visit.

It's a seafood restaurant. I suppose you could always get some rice and veg. but why bother when the point of eating here is their specialty of fabulously fresh seafood.
