Our last night in Sri Lanka. Seafood platter was amazing, chilli prawns delicious and the banana fritters highly recommended. Food was quick to come out but staff perhaps slightly less attentive than needed- if I’m picking fault. Highly recommended.

Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
