Pros:
Very good staff.
Interior is quite interesting. Has a very laid back atmosphere
Variety of seating options. Indoors, outdoor, lounge etc
Interesting Menu. Great "Tapas"
Cheap drinks
Cheap food.

Cons
The outdoor seating can be very tempting but it's also overlooking of the busiest roads in Colombo. The traffic to and from the Hotel can be very distracting.
Don't expect a great wine list. More of a bristo than a "wine bar".
Coffee isn't fresh. I'd recommend walking to the "other end of the building" for espresso

I visited this place with my husband and parents last year. My parents are quite fussy about food and were keen to try dishes which were not too spicy. All of us ordered different dishes and were impressed by the quality and taste of the food. The food prices were also pretty reasonable. The service was also very good, as with most places in Sri Lanka. My parents returned to this restaurant many times whilst we were staying in Colombo and spoke very highly of the place. I believe they even had a few drinks in the outside bar area one night with the locals.

A good menu and reasonable food. Judging by the wines available by glass, not really a wine bar in the general sense. Acceptable service. This place has great potential. With a little bit more attention to detail it could be amazing. It feels like someone smart just set it up and left.

My husband and I are returning visitors, having gone there for Valentines Dinner the first time. Even on busy V-day, the staff were attentive, service was quick and food was great! Not wanting to be too optimistic, we went there for lunch last weekend and the service and food did not disappoint once again. If you're lucky to be waited on by Royston - the entire experience will be all the more pleasant! Amazing service and attitude. He'll go the distance to run through the menu with you and suggest what's best. It's a refreshing change to have everyone from the doorman to the supervisor greet you with a smile and ensure that the time spent there is well worth your while. Hats off to the Staff,Service,Ambiance and Quality of Food.

Good attentive service. An open feel. Chicken Caesar salad that was what I expected and an interesting carrot cake, that was a bit spicy, but also a bit too dry; good none the less.
