“Well below expectations”
Reviewed July 7, 2011

This restaurant and bar is situated on the busy Poroutha Road and is open for lunch and dinner daily
The exterior dining area overlooks the ocean and has direct access to the sandy beach. Decor is non descript
Aquaria line one side of the dining area where you can select a live fish that will be killed and cooked for you – beware this is expensive
Service from the waiting staff is interesting
A group of us ordered some pre dinner bread. What arrived was white sliced with margarine that had been infused with garlic/onion flavour
A main course of chicken cordon bleu was a huge piece of meat covered in bread crumbs – but I never did find the cheese and ham that makes up the cordon bleu. Fellow diners all declared their various main courses to be disasters
On the whole prices are average for the area – say 1000 LKR for a main course a drink and tip
The overall impression is of a restaurant with few frills having the benefit of being directly on the beach but with a food offering that needs significant improvement
