We had a crab and a lobster. Prawns for appetizer. Sides - rice and kang kong. Food was great but the Lobster was the most memorable. We sat by the pool which was relaxing!

All I'd say is book early and get here before the crowds start. We were here spot on at 7pm when the restaurant opened and 6 other tables followed within 5 minutes. The food was simply delicious and well deserving of its strong ratings. The Chilli Crab was perhaps the best I've ever had, better than anything I got in... More

Located in the luxurious Cinnamon Grand hotel, this is a seafood extravaganza and very memorable experience. It's a beautiful venue, has a great vibe, and the menu selections are simply incredible. Loved the process of reviewing and selecting the fresh catch (see attached picture) and choosing among a multitude of preparation options. This is one of those situations where you... More

Located in Cinnamon Grand Hotel, this is one of the best meals I have had in Colombo or Sri Lanka in general. Seafood of the finest quality, the only bad thing to say here is that the price is a little too much.

Well well well. How can I start? This is a live post from the lagoon - known as the best restaurant in town. Arguably, the food was rather pleasant.

Superb restaurant that lets you pick catch of the day fresh from the counter and choose how it's done. Helpful staff can recommend you nice pairing of sauce and cooking method so don't worry if you're new to this. For local gastronomy experience, ask for Sri Lankan sauce and cooking method that suits your choice of seafood. We had fish,... More

Setting is unique, service was good, food was tasty and you can tell the chef how you want it cook and what flavour. You need to go here with a mind to explore and you will not be disappointed.

This is THE place in Colombo to go for people who love fresh and perfectly cooked seafood. This is not the place to go for a quiet dinner. The Lagoon is a bustling celebration of food. You choose the seafood and the weight from a freshly iced open display along with the sauce and cooking style in the open kitchen.... More
