The food and service for the times we have visited has just been alright.Nothing spectacular apart from the ambiance.I did like the blueberry cocktail from The Love Bar.But not a lot of options for vegetarians/vegans.

Lived in Colombo for two years but never been here before; really interesting décor in restaurant and very cool 'chill-out' bar upstairs. Food was great which makes a change as many so called 'gourmet' places in Colombo are disappointing. Cocktails were good, especially the one served in an antique looking tea cup (had too many so can't remember the name..). Service was very good as well. Bit on the costly side but that's fine when you have a good night out, hence will definitely be back.

Heard a lot about the place so went to check it out. Very disappointed. The food was nothing special and my whole group was rather disappointed by the quality of the food and the level of service.

Ants all over the tables. This was disgusting. The service is alright and the food was not high quality cuisine. The rice was undercooked, oily and cold...

I went to flamingo house for lunch and had the fondue as an appetizer (shared by 4) and then the seafood Kotthu as my very own entree. The flavors were really delicious and very distinct. And apart from the food, the ambiance was perfect. Really felt i was transformed to a different time and enjoyed the whole experience. Upstairs there is also a superb lounge with great music in the evenings.
