Nice place to chill out during the hot lunch and afternoon hours. They have very fast and free Wifi. The food is afforable and tastes good. The staff was also very nice and better than in most sri lankan restaurants.

Devilled prawns and prawn curry were absolutely delicious! Big portions too. Stick to the local dishes although the Burritos and tacos were good by Sri Lankan standards.

Had a fantastic time at the resort. Friendly staff and very helpful. We had a fantastic time here very relaxing and luckily close enough to all the hot spots without losing the feel of the 1950's beach vibe. We drank all there beer in the first night. They order extra for the whole week. I might be talking about beer... More

We came in off the beach for a quick lunch. We shared a burrito and tacos- both were in a dry wrap that didn't seem fresh. It wasn't tasty and we didn't finish it. Disappointing food compared to others in the area.

Chief salade. Obviously what was left in the kitchen since the day before (maybe even longer). The sign on the restaurant say OK for the AExpress card but the man didn't know how to use it in the machine. We had to pay whith an other one or cach. Worst place we been since we are in Sri Lanka.

We had several meals here as we liked the food so much. This might sound strange but we especially liked the vegetable salad, so sweet and crunchy! We also had their delicious fried rice and fresh tuna, all were great! There are plenty of options for food and drinks. Staff are friendly and relaxed. Do try the restaurant out!
