“Just perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012 via mobile

Been here everyday for nearly a month whilst on my hols. The service is brilliant and the staff are only too pleased to help you. The food is always excellent and if you require anything special, they will try and cater for any of your needs. Please give this restaurant a go if are are in the Mount Lavinia area. Try the pasta dishes and a cocktail.... Vodka-Martini (shaken, not stirred, of course). Top marks, chaps, well done.

“Be careful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2012

Had meal and drinks on the 2nd October. Food good, drinks good, was charged 11,000lkr. Friends who had been with us were charged 2000lkr. Fair enough you'd say some drinks put on our bill. No problem except they knew friends were staying for a month.
Went in on the 4th. Spent another 6000lkr on food and coffees.
Came in on the 5th bought 4 drinks paid cash 5000lkr note needed change. Gave me change for 2000lkr. Pointed out this to staff. Was on hiding to nothing. I hadn't had 2000lkr note all day.
The menu is quite extensive, while the restaurant wasn't busy. Having worked in the food industry for 30 years it doesn't take long to work out most of the menu must be frozen and warmed in a microwave. The setting is right on the beach. Idyllic you'd think but got advised to wear something on my feet due to being sharps on the beach.

Right on Mt Lavinia Beach, you can enjoy a cold Lion Lager and some tasty seafood. Great location and very relaxed atmosphere.

“Really Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 19, 2012

Had a few cocktails here on various evenings with my friend and really liked the place. The cocktail menu was varied and the ones we tried were really nice. When we finally tried the food it was fantastic, the crab was the best either of us had ever tried (and we live by the sea) as was the seafood spaghetti. We also shared a passion fruit soufle at the end which was delicious. The staff we friendly, place has a great atmosphere, would definitely recommend it!

“Good food great setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

A pretty comprehensive continental menu that is mid range. Great cocktails as well and very chilled beer which is perfect for a hot day in the tropics on the Mount Lavina Beach. Service is good and friendly. The restaurant can also be hired out for private parties. Access to the restaurant can be from the beach or by road but you do have to park a little bit away and jump an unprotected rail crossing
