The Angler

Reviewed By AshBush - London, United Kingdom

We were a little surprised at the venue after Reading the reviews, it’s above a shop and essentially is the owners home.
Only about 8 - 10 tables, single toilet accessed alongside kitchen.
That being said, nothing wrong with the food, owner was very chatty, it was quick and satisfied our hunger.
Very informal and not much of a view.

Nice staff if you can get their attention. Don't wash your feet in the foot bath unless you want to feel slimy algae in the unscrubbed concrete bath. Absolutely disguting....good to clean the water regularly but whats the point if the basic dirt and slime is not cleaned. Food was great, and presentation was great. Not happy that the waiter commented on how many bees I had - single female dining should not be told that she drinks so many beers (5) over 5 hours. Dirt behind the bar area was incredible, it was more like a waste tip for staff belongings.....dirty tissues lined the bar counter....complete disarray. Owner is apparently closing soon and doing a refurb, and therefore has let the standards of the place fall down badly. Lovely website but don't go if you think that's what you will see. In the recent 3 months I have been 3 times and will not return due to the dirt and unhealthy environment.

Governor's Restaurant

Reviewed By AVM2016 - Washington DC, District of Columbia

The food wasn’t anything to write home about, service either. However the view of the ocean and of Colombo in the distance is simply espectacular. I had a Margarita pizza which was ok, but reminded of college takeaway pizza in taste, consistency and appearance, not very nice! I had lunch here while I was waiting for my room to be ready for check in and it was nice to spend time in this magnificent Terrace with the ocean expanding in every direction. The staff is very courteous and old world, which is charming. I noticed there was a huge buffet as well during lunch and even if you are not staying here, you can buy lunch and use the pool which looked quite nice. From the Terrace one can see also the goings and comings of the trains to and from Galle. The amount Lavinia in general needs no recommendation, it is luxury and taste incarnate so my comments here are mostly in terms of the lunch experience and my choice of food... the couple on the next table ordered salad and it looked fantastic!

The London Grill

Reviewed By Gulana_H - Copenhagen, Denmark

Great ambiance with live music. Excellent service and highly attentive staff.
But....food is not what I expected. Have been twice, as I loved the atmosphere but didn't see any improvements.
Starters are fine. Bread is nice- they serve Gluten Free bread too- rare for Colombo.
Steaks- overcooked for medium rare, and the texture was hard like rubber.
They also had about 30% fat which was not edible.

This enchanting heritage restaurant, located on the new Galle Road, is a living legacy to the much talked about wood craftsmanship that Moratuwa is known for. The Victorian era ambiance, fine Chinese cuisine

Reviewed By Bodi L - Colombo, Sri Lanka

A rare well organized mid range restaurant at the heart of Moratuwa serving good foods with a friendly staff. An old mansion has been nicely transformed in to a romantic & fine dining restaurant with average facilities provide varieties of foods in Sri Lankan context. Recommended for families with kids & couples.

Our coffee, made from high quality, locally grown, Arabica beans, is brewed to tantalize your taste buds, to add that spark to your day! Our courteous and friendly staff is the reason that we are known as the cafe that serves coffee with love, and also why we've been awarded TripAdvisor's 'Certificate of Excellence' for three consecutive years!

Reviewed By RdeSilva - London, United Kingdom

Straight outta Dalston, the minimalist hipster chic is matched with Western pricing and a full range of modern caffeinated beverages. Considering it wasn’t that long ago that you couldn’t get a latte in Colombo for love nor money, I’m not complaining that much, but it does hurt handing over hugely disproportionate wads of cash knowing what the markup must be!

Wow that’s a great place. ☺ small place but 5 star service and taste. cool place. Friendly service. I ordered a grilled chicken burger meal. Actually it's really worth and the taste is so good too. We could choose any beverage for our meal and it’s great. I’m not happy about the parking area. I’m recommending that place for anyone. Thanks
