Dinner for 4 and a half (being my 2 year old daughter) was reserved and as we entered the sheltered courtyard, we were transported back in time - whitewashed walls, a library, a large courtyard and the requisite colonial era charm and ambience.
The service was exemplary, in spite of there being a couple other tables occupied. It is a rather small outdoor area but beautifully terraced landscape leading down to what was an inviting pool (given the humid night).
The menu is truncated and included only two options for main course. I ordered the Mahi Mahi but the rest of my group requested the chef to prepare a Sri Lankan chicken curry. My daughter ate a pasta (well part of the bowl as my wife devoured the rest) - the claim was made that it was the best made pasta she had had during our fortnight trip............this bode well for the adult meals which were yet to arrive.
Drinks were very good, and the wine list rather more robustly populated than the spartan grape offerings of other restaurants in the area. We enjoyed an Italian red, although it could have used some time to breathe - the idea of a wine decanter was lost on the staff so we forged on in keeping with the cheery spirit of the night.
The food when it arrived was extremely well prepared with due care given to the produce and its preparation. My mahi mahi was perfectly cooked, while the others declared the chicken curry to be a heady concoction of spices and chicken that tantalised the taste buds - also a winner.
The prices are set per person and slightly higher than other restaurants in the area but no quibbles given the overall experience.
We enjoyed the ambience more than dessert and were content to sit out on the patio cooled by the occasional zephyr. This place definitely got points for romantic venue - although the wailing of my daughter might have detracted from that slightly ;)
