Actually this place is a little bit of heaven away from our usual life style. The coffee, cakes and the Hazelnut Frappe keeps me visiting here more often than usual. Thank you Peer88 for your wonderful service and your delicious food.

Pier 88, the riverside restaurant behind the Nebula supermarket in Alutgama, has moved up-market with an additional menu of international dishes. For lunch today, I had a fantastic, imported Beef Tenderloin (medium rare) which came with fresh mushrooms, spinach and carrots (Rs3,500). My guest had...a very tender, slow cooked lamb shank (Rs3,400). The kids with us had huge Nasi Goreng (Rs1,100). There’s a new Pizza and Pasta menu too, as well as an improved cocktail list and even strong Irish Coffee (Rs600). Since the prices include service charge and government tax, and the setting by the river is wonderful and the service greatly improved, Pier 88 rates high on the list of top restaurants in Sri Lanka.More

We have seen Pier 88 evolve over a number of years. It is a much slicker operation than it used to be with the addition of a coffee bar and a larger covered area but it has maintained its friendly charm and ambience that we...have always loved. It is always a pure pleasure to slip in here away from the heat and bustle of the town outside to enjoy a cold drink and delicious food whilst enjoying the beautiful view across the river. Thank you all!More

Today I visited to try the first ever drafted Sunday roast at pier 88 and i can simply say this was out of mind.The meat was so tender and the gravy gave it a more strong taste.The yorkshire pudding was nailed too❤️❤️.As a little kick...they started by giving a delicious soup together with some crunchy toasted bread. This place is a must to try and I highly recommend this outstanding restaurant 💕.The staff was also so friendly and it made me feel like visiting this place soon again ❤️❤️☺️💕.More

Don’t think there is anything special about this place. Good menu, regular food and friendly staff. However it feels like any other tourist restaurant out there.

We visited here twice, our TUKTUK driver recommended it to us, we went one evening and it was great, food really tasty and super value for money. It’s set on the inlet (river)to the Ocean so is a waterfront location, but at night you don’t...get the full beauty of that, so we went back during the day.. which as it turned out was not a good move, views were great but the food was very poor in comparison. I had a “Tuna” steak and honestly I think even the stray cats surrounding our table would have turned their noses up at it!! I can inly imagine from the reviews we had a bad day... I hope so anyway! Maybe stick to the devilled prawns I had the first visit!!More

Hi, your coffee is absolutely fantastic. Your meal we did not enjoy that much. However, it might have been just one of those evenings, where things do not work out. All the best. middlepark traveller
