Came here for lunch but most of the items on menu are not available except pizzas! They were good but would have been nice to get some choices as it was our first lunch in Sri Lanka and we're excited to try out some local fare.

This open air restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean, offers local fare as well as International cuisine if you don't like curry. There is a pizza option too, as they have the corner on that market. Tons of fruit and breakfast options, great lunches. Great coffee and the local water buffalo yogurt! Try their Sri Lankan omelette.

I'm a repeat guest at Moonstone Villas and was there for 2 nights recently. As before, I enjoyed staying there from the 6th to the 8th. This restaurant offers alfresco dining. The menu offers a variety of excellent dishes, but if you want a really great bit of comfort food, you really have to try the pizzas. Whatever you choose... More

Came here the first time and had the margarita pizza and fried calamari. Both were very good. Good enough for us to actually come back a second time. Ordered the Napoli burger and prime beef burger. The pizza was WATERY. So much canned tomatoes on it that there was literally water on the plate. The burger patty was completely overcooked... More

Thank you for letting us know that there were a few problems with your second visit. We have already given new training to staff on the making the pizza sauce to be sure this isn't repeated.

Hello Louisesiv, and thank you for writing to us. I guess we are needing to spice up our pizza more and I will be sure to discuss with the staff. We are always working on getting it just the right amount of spice. More

May be this place is good for burgers and other typical European fast food, but we've ordered seafood and were quite disappointed. The fish and prawns were made from the frozen products for sure.

Don't expect Italian pizza, but the pizza served is quite good and the staff is really friendly and service minded.

Thank you for your comments on our pizza. You are correct we make our pizza as the staff were trained to do by a Michelin chef and we also make our own dough, our own sauce and the best ingredients we can find. We are still working on perfection and are really gald you liked it. More

First of all, I don't understand all the raving reviews here. But I will keep my criticism limited to the restaurant. The staff and owner are rude and seem to know as much about food as they know about customer service, not a great deal that is. The curry was bland, took ages to come and the portions were inappropriately... More
