This is so far my favourite restaurant in Cheltenham! Lovely flavoursome and spicy food accompanied with the best cocktails! I haven't come across a cocktail I don't like, but I would recommend the 'one love' cocktail, if you like passion fruit.

Been fancying this place for ages and finally got to go there on Sunday! The food is delicious but very spicy!!!! We got a platter to start, the jerk wings and corn fritters were my favourite, both absolutely stunning then there was a really nice garlic bread and a super spicy little bite size thing! My mouth was on fire!... More

Excellent fresh local seafood combined with old classics. Very flexible breakfast choice and good lunchtime snacks. Ask the staff during the day of the seafood availability for that evening and get the pick of the catch. The staff are happy to tweak and cater for your individual taste. Best food to date in Sri Lanka

The quality of the food is excellent. The presentation could not be more delicate, almost following design cuisine lines but with big portions. But the most outstanding is the catering service, can compete with the best standards europeos. Speciality in fresh fish and seafood and local cuisine. Exclusive wine list. All this coupled with an incomparable setting, superb beachfront in... More
