I went to King of the Mambo several times because I love everything about the spot. The view is amazing! You can be seated right next to the waves of the ocean and see a beautiful sunset. When it's dark, they light up the waves so you can still see them. The music was always great! Perfect mixture of cuban, spanish and club songs. They have great cocktails, my favorite is their Pimms Cup. The food is also very tasty but also a little bit more expensive. I loved their appetizer "Prawns with guacamole and garlic bread".
The best part about King of the Mambo is the atmosphere and the lovely staff. You feel like you are having a drink at the seafront in Cuba :)

One of my regular meet up points for a few sundowners. And perfect timing for happy hour 1700-1900 on a range of selected drinks. Staff are always helpful and Lakmal the Manager is always helpful.

We were looking for someone to celebrate my birthday, the hotel was relatively posh so we weren't sure what to expect. The staff were welcoming, music and ambience were great and more importantly the food was delicious. The fish casserole was one of the best dishes of my trip, even if it wasn't Sri Lankan. Thank you to Lakmal for your excellent hospitality. You made our evening. We'll definitely be back.

You will not find a better place to enjoy yourself and experience the kindness and flavors of Sri Lanka. David, Dinesh, Malinda and Kanishka provide service that is second to none.
