This is truly a great restaurant. The food and service was amazing. The chili crab and the hot butter cuttlefish was the some of the best I have had. The beach scenery makes it better as you an just walk outside and feel relaxed while taking in the smell of the ocean.

Dear Guest,

Greetings from Loon Tao !

Noted your comments. This is not the kind if hospitality we are known for. TripAdvisor "Excellence Award" for year 2013 is a testimony to that. We always endeavor to accommodate all guests irrespective of whether with a reservation or walk-in. This we practice could it even be full . We are here to serve our guests not to turn them down. Checked with all front staff but none appeared to know about your presence. Checked the internal records and we have not been full during the week concerned. My apologies but unable to comment any further in this regard.

Warm regards,
Manager.

Had dinner twice here as we enjoyed it so much. Good service, good sized servings and good value for what you get. By Sri Lanka standards this is not a cheap eats, but I think well worth the money spent and well cheaper than anything like it back home. Enjoy.(the salt & pepper calamari was my fave)
