We ate here on the first night of our Sri Lanka tour and WOW!!! what a way to start the holiday!! We chose to eat outside in a little 'cabana' just outside the restaurant, candle-lit, and with the sounds of the sea drifting up - very romantic!! We started with an amazing bread-basket filled with a variety of lemongrass rolls,... More

Of course its more costly to come here but the quality of the food was amazing. It started well when about 6 types of bread came to the table, the menu was plentiful and the decision hard. I chose the avocado pudding to start which was super big I could have shared between 2 persons. Then I had the seafood... More

Having been forced to over night in Columbo on our way back from the Maldives to London, my wife and I were put in the Jetwing by Sri Lankan Airline. Feeling pretty depressed about not getting home when expected, we decided to make the best of events and to try out the black Coral restaurant and had a most enjoyable... More

Food was amazing, ambience in restaurant was beautiful and the back ground music was perfect. We couldn't ask for any more - we had a perfect... More

We started with a Lobster Bisque soup. Out of this world.This was followed by a beef steak.and a shoulder lamb. The shoulder lamb was delicious and worthwhile trying.The beef steak was good, but asking for well done, it was slightly stringy. I understand you can not compare Sri Lankan steaks with American or English steaks. Having said that, the steak... More

This restaurant is excellent. The food and service were outstanding, the staff were absolutely lovely and the prices very reasonable. To be honest it seems very out of place in the rest of the hotel but still well Worth a visit. Just don't stay in the hotel!

Yesterday we went to the fine dinning restaurant Black Coral at Jetwing Beach Hotel. My wife had asparagus soup and I had pea soup. Absolutely delicious. For mains my wife had lobster and I had rack of lamb. Cooked to perfection. The service was superb. Even though pricy, very worthwhile visiting.

We have been to Negombo a few times now and on this visit pretty much exhausted the Tripadvisors' selections. The best of which was the Black Coral by some margin too. Lords is obviously great and funky and reasonable value and it's our regular though for a quiet, more intimate, more indulgent evening the Black Coral takes some beating. Beyond... More

We had a delicious dinner at The black coral. The lobster tail starter, sea food gnocchi and the chicken were truly delicious. Very good service and nice wine. I definitely recommend having dinner there!
