The food here was good, but is let down completely by the service, or lack of, which ruined the experience. We ordered three simple local dishes and three drinks. One drink came out after half an hour, then after another 10 mins he came back and said they had run out of the other drinks. So we change our drink... More

Had a good dinner there. The location is nice and quite. The staff was very friendly so that we felt well. We enjoyed our food very much. I'd say it's the best location in this area of Dambulla to get some good food.

I recently visited this fairly new restaurant, we stumbled upon this place by mistake however by the end we were certainly pleased to have found it. The main feature of the restaurant has to be the chef a well travelled man who worked in restaurants in Italy for over 20 years. He was super helpful with recommending dishes, and it... More

Would not recommend this place at all! We were a group of six and right from the start we received very bad service. We were only given one menu and then told to write down our own orders. It took ages for them then to collect the orders and to come and offer us drinks. After asking about drink selection... More

Stumbled across this new hotel and restaurant whilst having a walk round Dambulla. Having had rice and curry for the past few nights we were looking for something a bit more westernised but still easy on the pocket. When we returned that evening we were greeted by the owner at the front and shown to the charming, modern outside eating... More
