A great little spot on Mount Lavinia Beach. Great service and a top place to watch the sunset. The food was good, not outstanding but the vibe and coolness of the place makes a visit worth while. The best sunset in Colombo, but watch out for the trains that run past the bar...

Great food. But service wasn't very attentive. Maybe it was due to peak hours. The restaurant was full. Experience was ruined at the end because we waited 20 mins to get change from our bills (we paid cash). Had to go up to cashier to ask for it. Ended up that the waiter misplaced it on another table. No apology... More

Well run restaurant with a varied menu. We ate here on our final two days in Sri Lanka. The staff are efficient and although the food takes a bit longer than usual it was obviously freshly prepared. We tried the scambled eggs, tuna sandwich, caesar salad and chicken burger. The beer was really cold and the G & T came... More

This French restaurant is next to Island Scuba. We went to this restaurant 2 days in a row for late lunches after diving. Food was delicious! The pumpkin cannelloni, gobi manchurian and the ravioli were really delicious!! Just expect really slow service. Our food came between 45min to one hour later we placed order for both days. Drink loads of... More

Very very disappointing. Pretty much the worst experience in all of Sri Lanka. Staff is lousy and the manager on duty seemed like he just wanted to get done for the day.

Dear Ashisharun So very sorry to hear you were dissapointed about our service. With the very busy New Years evening our staff was a bit nervous and unorganised, I am truly sorry about that. Please give us a chance to prove we can do better, I will definitely take your comments into our management meeting to make sure this doesn't... More

Went in for a drink and service was very bad. We were ignored while everyone else was being served. Had to ask someone to take our drinks order - then drinks took around 25 minutes to arrive. Drinks were nice when they arrived. The bill came to 903 and they only gave us 90 back from 1000 so took more... More

Dear Philippa I am sorry about your bad experience with our service. I hope you understand the hustle about New Year and our staff being a bit nervous about getting everything done in time since we had a big beach party and a la carte dinner going on in the evening. However this is no excuse. I can only kindly... More

It's a nice beach restaurant with good view of the sea and it's best at night. Good cocktails and not very attentive but friend stuff. Average food. Best thing is the location.
