We got such good food here the first night that we went back each night we were there. We love their prawns but discovered the joys of their pizzas this year. The service was qicker this year. I hope they keep up the good work.

It was our first visit during 18 days of staying in NEGOMBO, We enjoyed the view, the weather, the music, the food selectionand the service and then the food was so yummy and exactly like we ordered it , even the toilets were very clean and believe me it is rare in Negombo and Sri Lanka

Ate at this restaurant based on a recommendation from a local and it became a regular hang out for me for lunches and dinners during my stay in Negombo. The restaurant is located directly on the beach and it has a lovely comfortable vibe with views of the ocean. The staff are welcoming, friendly, and eager to please. They have their own parking lot and free Wi-Fi which was very convenient. I was told that the chefs' speciality is fish - this certainly was true as the food is just excellent, made with fresh ingredients prepared with care by the chef and staff. My favorites were the baked crab, lobster, grilled prawns, whole grilled fish and my ice-cold beer 'Lion Lager'. The seafood platter (very large) is incredible - this was the best lobster and crab I have ever had - you will not be disappointed! King Coconut is very popular and busy and as a tourist it was nice to dine in a restaurant frequented by local families. I wouldn't hesitate to return or to recommend it to others.

Good:
- good flavours
- al fresco settings

Bad:
- waiter takes orders by numbers. Forgot to write down our order for seafood platter because he didn't catch the number
- slow. Our soup took 45 mins, our mains an hour. How long do you need to grill prawns?
- limited selections. Only one vegetable dish on the menu and it was mostly potatoes. Who do I have to bribe to get greens here?
