Staff were not great, didnt like the service charge of 10% which is not advertised. First place after 3 weeks that didnt advertise the 10 % and charged. Dont know if it was just the staff trying to get extra for them self.

I've been here with my husband at the end of our Sri Lankan journey. Nice restaurant at the beach road (but no direct access to the beach). Particularly great at night, cocktails and food both really good!
