We were greeted, seated and our order taken in good time. The restaurant was busy, but they moved along quite nicely. The grilled lobster was absolutely wonderful! I would certainly return.

I bet the grilled lobster is the way to go, but I had the fricasse lobster and it was a big disappointment. Also, we waited a very long time to get served.

I find this restaurant one of the best in St Francois. The outstanding dish is the grilled lobster, served with rice, salad and several dressings on the side. It is really delicious and also a very good value for money, we paid fixed price of 48 euro for 800 gr which is a good portion for 2 people. The menu... More

The restaurant is lovely, and the staff falls all over themselves to serve. Not one, but 3 or 4 servers stop by at various times throughout the evening to take another order, refresh drinks and drop off plates of food. Many like to pick a lobster from the tank, but someone at the table should def order the chicken -... More

We got there early, right as the were opening and they were happy to seat us wherever we liked. The restaurant has a great ambiance and you can sit inside or outside.

Colombo is a very busy restaurant with very good food! The staff was kept hopping by a very large group, but our service was efficient, and the hostess could not have been more pleasant, and the young chef (who grew up in the business, as I recall) stopped by to say hello and ask about our experience there.

The food was quite good (snapper and chicken), and the side dishes were really delicious! Very Caribbean flavors: spicy, sweet and curry all mixed together. The service was slow but friendly, and the waitstaff is super patient with all the children in the restaurant. We went for lunch and there were many multigenerational families.
