I have promised myself many times not vist places based on Lonely Planet recommendations and I made this mistake again. Food is prepared for the European taste, it lacks the flavors Sri Lankan cuisine is famous for. Service was friendly but slow. Prices twice as high as elsewhere on Lewis Place, plus a 10% service charge. Not a Hilton, but in this respect pretending to be.

Priceworthy local cuisine, try the seer fish or other seafood dishes but for stomachs unaccustomed to the local cuisine you can also have a pizza. Staff is friendly and serviceminded.Cheap drinks as well. This is not the most classy place in Negombo but the atmosphere is relaxed.

Good atmosphere and fun waiting staff with a great sense of humour. Good value for money though the food wasn't of a high class standard. Old 80's music to sing along to and bizarre walls full of handwritten messages of how wonderful the food was...can only imagine too much alcohol involved there!!
