Shore is undoubtably the swankiest bar in Mount Lavinia. I am frankly surprised to read that some of the other reviewers have had bad experiences with the level of service here, because I found the service to be very good for such a busy bar on a friday night.
Despite some initial confusion with our order (brought out 1 main course instead of 2 - but graciously offered to bring an extra plate so we could share) our assigned waiter quickly sorted himself out.
The menu itself is nothing special, with the same items from Floor by O! and the Brewery by O! menus. The food is simple and tasty, and very reasonably priced. The portions are ENORMOUS, and despite insisting on two main courses (Black Pork Curry and Rice, Prawn and Crabmeat Curry and Rice) neither my friend, nor I could finish our food.
I would definitely recommend Shore to anyone looking for a decent and reasonable place to have a few drinks and a bite to eat with friends or family.
P.S. Shore doesn't enforce a dress code, so feel free to rock up in flip flops and board shorts!

Although this restaurant is located in an enviable location -- given its prime location status of beach front/safe area. The service is the least desirable. The wait staff including the Manager did know how to make guacamole. We order this dish and was given a seafood salad instead with no explanation. Upon inquiring for the recipe from the Manager (in a polite way we wanted to know if they even knew what this dish was to begin with, even though it's listed on the menu). The Manager mumbled something and sent us the waiter later on who had the expression of a "deer in headlights" and so we ate it as we didn't not want to make a fuss, but I would think twice about going to this place given that there are other beach restaurants in its vicinity.

great music! and good crowd and interesting fusion food. its located just beside Berjaya Hotel Colombo. So getting there is fast and easy. A bit noisy and chaotic outside because of the cars and narrow roads... but its colombo..

The location is excellent - just by the beach and they had live music that evening. The seating arrangement is good and whether you are a couple or a group you can get a nice place to relax. The food and drinks were nice and not expensive. A nice place to chill out over drinks!
