“Really good food”
Reviewed July 2, 2014

Food is served in a buffet format although A La Carte options are available. The menu changes daily and consists of a mixture of European and Sri Lankan dishes. The quality is very good indeed and even the most fussy eaters will be able to find something to satisfy them. There is always a very good selection of desserts and fresh tropical fruit on offer. Must mention the service. Absolutely excellent! Even the executive chef will check with diners that they are satisfied with his offerings. We have stayed at this hotel ten times which says something about the quality of food, service and accommodation which right now is being refurbished. Can't wait to get back next year to see the results.

“A good experience”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Right from the first moment, the waiters couldn't do enough for you, sensitively hovering and anticipating every need.
The food was varied, plentiful, and tasty, with something for everyone, although similar options appeared most days, so after a fortnight it became a little repetitive. It would also have been nice to have wine with the meal as part of the all inclusive.
However the fish platter was stunning, and well worth having. All the food tasted fresh and nicely cooked. we were very satisfied with it all.

“Very good choice available”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

We had all inclusive so stuck with the buffet, but the choice was very good, and the quality very good also. There is an a la carte option, which we didn't try. Staff very pleasant, the only small drawback was if you couldn't get under a fan it was a bit too warm.
