The place is really special. We had a pizza and some smoothie. Again, place has a really special atmosphere but they have forgotten about the BASIC service. The waiter who brought our pizza, put it on a dirty table with old customers napkins and did...More

I stayed there for 5 minutes, tried liking the place but could not. Its an old dull place, not like I had seen in the pictures. There was no crowd at all, only 2-3 groups of people sitting. Limited menu for food, no parties. Overhyped.

Came here on a Saturday night for a few drinks. Cocktails are really nice and only 500 rupees during happy hour (5-7pm). Pizza is also really nice. Played croquet on the grass and had some really good live music. Would definitely recommend.

We ordered the pizza medit. which tasted very good but the crust was a bit to thin. The price for a pizza is around 1400 which we think is a bit to expensive. Also the other products are on the higher side (1 slice of...More

Situated right on the beach at Madiha, The Doctors House has very comfortable and clean dorm rooms. The highlight is the huge front yard where you can get the best hot coffee, the coldest beers and delicious wood-fired oven pizzas. They frequently have live music....More

We came here for drinks and I felt a little disappointed. The banana peanut choc. shake tasted just like banana (500Rs) and the watermelon juice was ok. The hipster location right at the beach is quite nice, but that’s it.

The Doctor’s House is a 200 year old, former Dutch and ayurvedic hospital, situated on the south coastline of Sri Lanka. We are a couple of guys from down-under, whom openly admit to having zero experience in hospitality and simply aim to have a bit of fun hosting with a good vibe across our place and the village. We breakfast with real coffee and delicious juices from 7:30-10:30 daily and we serve wood-fired pizzas, snacks, desserts, good cocktails and the COLDEST BEERS in Sri Lanka from 12:30 - 9:30pm daily. We also have 2 dorm rooms (a 4 bed and a 6 bed). So come eat, stay, drink and play at The Doctor's House in Madiha!
