Came here on the recommendation of our host at the Samaya Fort. Wanted to go full Sri Lankan curry and rice. This place did not disappoint. The restaurant is on the third floor and we watched the sun set as we enjoyed one of the best meals of our fortnight in Sri Lanka. We are real foodies and this meal... More

The breezy roof top restaurant is the right location for a romantic dinner. The chicken cordon bleu was perfectly cooked with taste boiled veg. The chilian wine was a bit too warm but affordable. Very nice set up despite a non smily waiter. Go for it, it worth it!1

seven different curries (veg and prawn), pamadan, flavoured rice, all of an outstanding quality at less than 2k Rupie for two! ask for singalese style, more spicy, yet perfect for westerners, not as tasteless as in hotels and other Tourist traps. sensationel view, sunset from rooftop. we left with great thanks and can recommand this place by heart. very friendly...

The restaurant is located on the roof of the eponymous guest house. It was worth climbing up the stairs, the views are fantastic! The old town to your left and right, and the sea in front of you in the mid-distance. Service from the owners and their staff was warm, gracious, and courteous. They offer a full menu, Sri Lankan...

A small but nice rooftop terrace. They serve a good choice of drinks and their food was very tasteful. Try the garlic prawns with yellow rice, an excellent experience. Stuff was a bit lazy, but atmosphere and food were perfect.

This was one of the best rice and currys we had in our entire trip! The restaurant has a nice view over the fort, and is well worth a visit for dinner.

This is a really nice location, especially for breakfast early morning as you can overlook all the 'goings-on' in the grounds of the fort. However on both occasions of eating here, one breakfast and one lunch, we weren't that impressed with the quality of food or length of time it took to get to us. Sandwiches at lunch time were...
