Description
*STRICTLY - Reservation Only – please don’t just turn up! *SORRY - all children must be OVER 6 years old (NO toddlers/babies). Buckingham Place relocated its restaurant to overlook the ocean, you’ll see why when you get here! Oceanfront’s location, atmosphere, eclectic menus and easy going hospitality are well worth a trek out of town. Short, well executed menus offer imaginative fusion, locally caught fish, prawns and as one might expect, traditional Sri Lankan fare - all prepped and cooked freshly to order. Reserve early for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner! Tips: very limited table space – booking essential, no children under 6, check website or Google maps before setting off, please call if you can’t find us! [GPS coordinates: latitude 6.0469718 / longitude 80.8547264].
