Food is a little bit more expensive but of very good quality. The staff is very attentive and professional compared to most of the other places I visited in Arugam. Try the devilled prawns with rice there

Eat fresh food and be served with love. These guys work hard to make you enjoy. Special place. The parties are great too. There was a reggae party there with a live band and the atmosphere was fantastic!
