We were recommended by a random taxi transfer so thought we would check it out. Made a reservation and we had a table at the edge of the water which was amazing. Wonderful oysters, fish curry, and creme brûlée. Prices were decent for the atmosphere and amazing service. It's the tax that kills you as it added on over £10!... More

The Sea Spray is a nice snack restaurant situated next to the pool at the Galle Face hotel. We use it when we live in Galle Face, but it is also open to the public and well worth the visit, to feel the atmosphere and charm of the old colonial times. Take a trip back in time and enjoy a... More

We dined here twice -- both times it was delicious. Fresh seafood with Sri Lankan spices. Yellow fin portion was generous. Soft shelled crab was yummy! Get a table outside.

The only problem with this restaurant is that doesn't open until seven p.m., by which time the sunset is long gone - you can drink before that at bare tables, but it isn't the same. The menu has a heavy bias towards the sea, with a range of price points, but the food itself was well prepared and presented, regardless... More

The restaurant is next to the sea. There is open space next to the ocean, but we were advised to be in the covered area because of possibility of evening rain. It is mostly sea food. By local standards, food is pricey, and quantities served are small (e.g. rice or vegetables to accompany the main dish). Be careful when you... More

A sea food restaurant, specialising in freshly caught local fish. Expensive but exquisitely perfect cuisine in a venue overlooking the sea.

With its panoramic views of the Indian Ocean in a defined casual-chic setting, Sea Spray introduces an exclusive alfresco dining experience to Colombo. Inspired by European seafronts, the atmosphere is refined but relaxed, with seamless understated service. The cuisine is authentic yet contemporary based on the creative use of island produce made to order with fresh fish, crustaceans and shellfish, being the highlight. The curated menu is focused on the Chef's private cooking stage with contemporary cooking styles. Sea Spray offers an elegant and interactive experience, with an extensive Raw Bar and Wine Cellar that enhances this exclusive dining experience. The menu is a creation of Executive Chef Adam Gaunt-Evans and Sea Spray's Chef de Cuisine Jagath Raweendra.
