I went to flamingo house for lunch and had the fondue as an appetizer (shared by 4) and then the seafood Kotthu as my very own entree. The flavors were really delicious and very distinct. And apart from the food, the ambiance was perfect. Really felt i was transformed to a different time and enjoyed the whole experience. Upstairs there is also a superb lounge with great music in the evenings.

Love love love this bar, it's entertainment in itself just staring at the interior and exterior design. Great place for couples or big groups. Highly recommended.

The cocktails were a little be plain, but this shouldn't stop you from checking this place out....put it on your list in Colombo.

What an amazing place!!! Visually there is so much to take in. Beautiful, unique and a story behind every item placed within Flamingo House. The food is not only a feast for the eyes but a pure delight to the taste buds. The Cocktails!!! Well, I had 'Kalinga's Gimlet' and I can safely say that that, is now my all time favourite drink!!! An ambience that has a corner to suit all needs, with super attentive employees - this is a place I will come back to again and again and again!!

This is the Old Gerard Mendis Restaurant, its with a much better ambiance now, the Menu is a nice spread, ranging from Vegetarian to sea food etc, with a good dessert menu.

We visited twice now within a week. Kids enjoyed and wanted to revisit.

Service is very good.

Wheel chair accessible, but the washrooms could be bit difficult to access.

Great to have a quiet lunch/dinner or snack meeting or qiest family dininh.
The do have some parking on the side too.

The place is a very oldish environment with a beautiful bar on top that has the club feeling, a some of the best barmen and the food unique in its own way
