We had cocktails and dessert, the set menu being mainly fish based and not suitable for vegetarians. My banana colada was excellent. The long island iced tea was neither iced nor long-quite disappointing. The cake was lovely.
The setting was beautiful. If you sit where dinner is served, you are in close proximity to other guests. Conversation is not private. however, the porch faces the road and the evening was punctuated by the sound of the waiting taxi driver loudly ridding his throat and nasal passages of vast quantities of mucus. An authentic experience?

After looking at the overly expensive shops we cooled down at the hotel with a drink and meal. Staff were attentive, switched on and professional. Took a while to get out meal though!

Dinner at this hotel restaurant rarely disappoints. A set menu of vaguely thai or Eastern fusion food is delicious and good value. Wine is expensive, as in most Sri Lankan eateries. The main plus is the location; a wonderfully restored old merchants house with courtyard eating overlooking the long pool, lined by columns, all dramatically lit.
Our only criticism was that the service was too speedy. as soon as a plate was finished, it was cleared and the next course put down. For a relaxing evening, it would be better to have a more laidback approach.

We went here for dinner one evening and had a pre dinner cocktail on the veranda which has a very colonial feel to it. Dinner is served on tables overlooking the swimming pool. The dinner menu was only one choice but this did not put us off - the starter was chicken satay , followed by a malaysaian fish dish (cooked and served in a banana leaf with rice and veg, and lovely coffee panacotta to finish off. It was pricy for sri lanka (3000 rupees each) but well worth it. The service was welcoming and efficient too.
