I've been there after a long driving trip from Kandy, the quality of food were great. Had Shrimps, it took long time to bring but it was so good, and they forgot to bring the Salad and the Rice which has been included in my order.

This is a sea food joint so please stick to ordering sea food which is fresh , tasty. Our first dish was a Crab masala which was yummy - the flavor was not so spicy and it was truly delicious.Our Second dish was a spaghetti ( veg) which was cold, bland, insipid and tasteless. The few basil leaves and the... More

This was a good experience to be able to pick your own lobster and have it cooked for a specific time. The ambience of the restaurant was good but not much of a view. Food was good but not the best I've had out there and it wasn't cheap.

When you get to the place, your expectations rise since you get to choose a fresh fish, lobster or crab right at the entrance where it lies on display. My boyfriend and i shared a fish, sadly the fish was dry and quite tasteless, and the prices were very high. The place is cozy but dont expect more than that

We were recommended to come here by a tuktuk driver for a good seafood meal and it was fantastic. Fresh crabs , giant prawns, lobsters all on offer &, if you want to, you can choose exactly which ones you want to eat. Really good meal, 2 courses plus a bottle of wine for the equivalent of £60, and that... More

We had the most signature dish in srilanka. Prawn curry n rice. It was very yummy. Served with dal, sambhol, salad. They made it very mildly spicy as we requested. It's little highly priced but worth a meal by lake side. Has a beautiful lake following by. Worth every penny.
