We had dinner here after seeing the Kandyan Dancers. The location is lovely, perched overlooking greenery and a tumbling river below - and that's about it - food is average and over-priced - such a pity for such a nice location.

We had a good lunch at honeypot. The best thing was we were able to sit out and enjoy a view of the hills and the river flowing next to this place. The service is a little slow, but we didn't mind, as the sound of the flowing river and the hills view was enjoyable.

Calm and quiet surrounding with the soothing sound of the river. Reasonably priced menu with good varieties, especially desserts. Very helpful staff willing to explain all dishes served. Quick service.

Had a very pleasant lunch of Sri Lankan curry delicacies. We ate out on the balcony with a lovely view and sound of the river going over Rapids. No hesitation in recommending and prices very reasonable.

I was there with one of my clients for the lunch at Honey Pot Restaurant. The superb service with smiley faces of stewards given us the real welcome and served us the Sri Lankan traditional lunch with more varieties of vegetables which we ordered. The special thanks for Obrey and the staff. Visited February in 2015

We also serve a selection of fresh tropical fruit juices along with hot drinks too. All our dishes are prepared to a very high standard. Our Prices are very low, whilst the service we offer is like no other. We also provide a free WiFi service to all our guests.
