“Swiss Quality on Negombo Beach”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I was a little sceptic seeing the Swiss flags hanging at the entrance but was in for a surprise.

The food was superb - who would think you can get authentic and delicious central European food just a stone's throw from Negombo beach?

I attribute the quality of the food to the excellent meat available in Negombo. The meat and seafood was undoubtably fresh and the cut was of high quality.

The middle aged Swiss lady owner came out to greet us personally.

Sitting outside there was a little problem with mosquitoes and the waiter brought out an incense type mosquito repellent that we declined because we had our own natural based citronella spray.

“Terrible do not visit ..”
Reviewed February 5, 2014 via mobile

Went here tonight on a recommendation. . Where did they get the picture of the food icon? This was an awful restaurant with the worst service and food. Arrived 745pm. Ordered then told sorry no steak. Ordered chicken. Sorry no chicken. One hour later they brought us a small side plate of sauerkraut which was compiled from veg not fresh. Two young waiters serving around 50 people who were only given drinks at speed. It was clear that the staff in kitchen could not cope. I looked in kitchen entrance and can only describe the staff in there as lacking in even basic hygiene ...please read this owners and take heed before someone gets ill. Avoid at your peril!

“Lovely ambience”
Reviewed February 4, 2014

A must try place if you are in Negambo. Their fondue is great. and the items on the menu is excellent. A meal cost above average but fully worth the price you pay.
We had dinner at Bijou, the place was packed, and the two waiters on duty( just two) were very active. They don't note the order but take on memory. Awesome , didn't make a mistake on a single item. Madushan who served us was excellent. Not a place to have a quick meal , have enough time to enjoy the experience
