“most enjoyable dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012

Snapper Jack...Cracker Jack, Steak great. Paid a visit on recommendation and it was as described to the point. Too early in the season to be mad busy, so it was quiet, which is excellent as far as we were concerned. Quality professional service. Like to close no later than 10pm which is typical in these parts. Paying a second visit quaranteed.

“Well run”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

We have used the restaurant recently 3 times, and each time the food and the service has been excellent. I would be nice however to have a specials menu, this seems to be lacking in all the restaurants on the coastal strip.

“Tasty, tasty and tastier!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

We stayed 5 nights down the road at the Avani Bentota and ate at the Golden Grill for three of those nights. Relaxed but sharp and polite service with tasty food - especially the tiger prawns that make lobster in London look small. Limited choice of wine but we weren't there for the drinks. As we were leaving after the third meal the owner gave us a packet of Ceylon Tea - unexpected and appreciated. A must eat here taste of local cuisine if in this part of Sri Lanka. Chris & Stephen
