This place had very nice service!! Their coffee cocktail was delicious. Pizza was quite good, but not the biggest size I have to say. Nice place to go especially during daytime.

Best coffee in the area for sure by a mile. Wish we had stayed here, but maybe next time. Was nice sitting on the lawn and relaxing under the tree

Haven’t had tacos this good since Mexico! Pork tacos were amazing. And great coffee. Also have a kids menu which is good for us (3yr and 1yr). Nice setting under the coconut trees in the shade

Great coffee and great service. We were desperate for decent coffee and found it! Lovely outdoor restaurant.

This place is expensive for being in Sri Lanka but we decided to give it a go since everything on the menu sounded delicious and the venue is really nice. I am vegan and the owner helped me figure out which options I had since...the menu didn’t make it clear what was vegan and the waiter had a hard time understanding my dietary restrictions (which I’m very used to when traveling so no hard feelings). Food came out and the presentation was great but the me was unfortunately a huge disappointment with no love put into the taste of the food. My friends ordered some none vegan dishes and thought there food was mediocre as well (especially considered the prices). Me and one of my friends ordered the same food (the pumping risotto) and we both got food poisoned (or it wasn’t vegan as promised and we’re both allergic to milk), which I know can happen anywhere but still obviously makes it all a bad experience and I therefore don’t recommend this place for dinner.More

We were in the area for a week or so and ate here four times. The rosti eggs benedict was delicious and they have the best coffee around!

The food was fine but we found it quite overpriced and the waiters were not that attentive. We almost paid the same for a dinner here as we would in Scandinavia.

Nice place for a romantic dinner, we stumbled upon it on our way to another place and decided to stay because it was closer to our hotel. The food is nice, you can share everything, but portions aren't really that big. Could easily be bigger...for the price (somewhere near 2000 lkr for a small pan of rice with seafood).More

Love this little place, just behind the bar. Lawned garden, great coffee and vegan brunch/lunch/dinner options. Plus a clean toilet & most importantly (for me), they love their dogs and care for them. Water bowls, collared, neutered & healthy. Well done chaps!
