Had a lovely seafood meal, no complaints. Service too was good. The only issue was the live music, it was the rare combo of piano and djembe. Ever wondered why you have not heard this combo rocketing up the billboard charts? I know why now ... besides the strange instrument pairing, the real problem was the piano player should really...

We were staying at a sister hotel and went here for Saturday evening buffet. The range of food catered for all tastes and was good. Service was very attentive. A big room but you get good attention.

Brilliant food, but rarely used at the Jetwing Lighthouse. Can't understand why - although service was very slow. I had a memorable steak, while my sons had huge, very reasonably-priced lobster.

We were very disappointed with the food at the Cinnamon Room. I could only recommend that you don't go there. I had the grilled lobster for US$35 and it was inedible - dry and tasteless. The crab cakes before hand were either made from frozen or tinned crab - equally terrible. My partner had the asparagus soup, which was ordinary.... More

Third time dining in at Jetwing Lighthouse's fine dining restaurant. Views overlooking the ocean are fantastic and the service is excepional. Sri Lanka has great seafood but the Cinnamon Room has consistently served up some of the best seafood meals I've ever had and that fact bolstered by the great staff and decent wine selection always makes for a truly...

Great location overlooking the sea. Delicious meal with great service. Get there early to watch the sunset. I had the 'sizzling scallops' starter and the grilled prawn main, both we're great. Service is attentive without being over the top and trying too hard. Real personality and knowledge of the menu. Worth the trip if you're staying in Galle Fort (3k... More

The Cinnamon Room is the formal dining area of the Light House hotel in Galle. It's very impressive wood panelled, high ceilings, intimate tables all capped off with views out onto the ocean (you can wander on the terrace before hand and enjoy a drink in the hotel bar). The very welcoming food and beverage manager had a crab curry... More
