Literally our favourite find in Sri Lanka. A cool restaurant pub outdoors overlooking the ocean, owned by a couple Aussie blokes! What a find, they’re right the beer is cold and my daughter absolutely loves the swing with the view. The shop is fab and...we spent a fair bit in there. We will absolutely go back when we return to Sri Lankan later this year. We didn’t get to try the pizza but it looked amazingMore

We read the comments about TheDoctorHouse and we saw lot of people being sick after eat Guacamole. We tough, it's happen once and they fix the problem. We ordered yesterday nacho with the (famous) guacamole. And surprise we were sick too. So we gonna talk...as well of the price, that are excessive. And also of the awkward feeling that strictly any local were there...More

Having been brought here by a tour group, raving about the place I have been left underwhelmed. Starting off having to order food in one place and cocktails in another at the overpriced prices, quoted in USD as this type of establishment prefers. Returning to...my large group and seeing everyone’s orders arrive and just be dumped in the middle of the table to go cold and a useless waiter just turn and walk away uninterested. My food never arrived so on going up to the counter the waiter looked like he was about to fall asleep! Talking to another waiter who claimed to understand my order was missed he promised a delivery of nachos with pulled pork…. Plain nachos arrived obviously, given my group had now nearly eaten I just left it and carried on. On clearing the table the first disinterested waiter dropped a used fork on my lap covering the shorts in food…… and then proceeded to take someone else’s half finished drink and throw it in is basked. Only to try and fish it out when it was upside down to place back on the table when he was challenged. Avoid this establishment and go somewhere more authentic, don’t waste your cash and look after a local who needs it and will provide you with much better food, drink and serviceMore

We had a blast at the New Years Day party! The food (especially the pizza) is delicious, plenty of beer and well-made cocktails (especially the margaritas), the DJs are awesome, and overall just a really fun vibe.

I came upon this place when I was casually seeing what was in the area. It was a 500 rupee Tuk Tuk ride from our hotel and we’ll worth the ride. Very relaxed place. We visited on a couple of occasions. We had lunch which...was delicious, and a few beers. The lagoon at the front had two turtles very close to the beach, which was just perfect. I hear the night time is the real time to visit, but we left that to the young crowd. Free wifi too.More

I came to this place with my spouse to get lunch after a long vacation in Dickwella. And we were looking forward to coming here on our way back to Colombo, and this place completely ruined the good expectations I had on it. I had...never experienced this much racism in MY OWN DAMN COUNTRY, they treat the locals like garbage as if we're here to ask for free food. From the very moment we went in I realized that coming here was a bad idea. Coz none of the staff gave at least a little concern, and they were only giving us dirty looks for coming here and we really felt out of place. We managed to stop one staff member and asked if we could dine inside, he very rudely said "No U can't go in!" and just left. By this time I was already fed-up and sad because we were getting looked down in our own country, it was just heartbreaking. We didn't have much of a choice because we came here on our way back to Colombo and didn't have a lot of time, so we gathered up whatever the courage we had and went to the counter and ordered a pizza and drinks and managed to find an empty table outside. After what felt like an eternity, we got our food. The staff who brought it just slammed the plates on the table and left. RUDE! The food was okay but we felt it was overpriced for the way they treat us. The worst customer service I had ever encountered in my life. I cannot comprehend the fact that people are being mistreated for being locals. And specially on a so-called fun, relaxing place. I don't think foreigners are treated the same way, this staff just judge people by their skin color. If you are a local, please find a different place where the staff would treat you as humans and as their customers. Needless to say that I won't be stepping anywhere near this place again, AND LOCALS, IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON VISING THIS PLACE, JUST DONT!!!!More

Back in the day this place was clearly hip. They’ve excelled on the decor. Unfortunately now it’s populated with people walking around filming themselves and kimono boardshort knobheads. Worth a trip for a party on a Saturday night but unfortunately this place has seen better...days..More

Beautiful place with great staff and tasty drinks! Also a plus: they accept card payment, something not so common in the area;)

We stopped here with withdrawal symptoms from lack of coffee and ordered a flat white with cold brew coffee. In fairness, it wasn't a flat white by any stretch of the imagination, as that is made with two shots of espresso (espresso doppio). Well, and...cold brew? I guess they don't differentiate here between roasting coffee suitable for espresso or, conversely, roasting for filter coffee. I won't comment on the taste, let everyone make their own picture. European cuisine is also represented in the menu. The restaurant's garden is very nice and invites relaxing doing nothing. The service here is helpful.More
