Great place with really nice service! Fast delivery on the food and drinks. Not expensive. They also know good English if you have any allergies. The manager is also very funny to talk to, he knows everything and has an excellent English.

We tried this place for lunch while staying at the Heritance. It's only a couple of minutes walk away and they gave us a couple of very fresh and tasty dishes of fish with fried vegetables.

Large restaurant with covered but outdoor tables diaganolly opposite the Heritance hotel. Wide ranging menu but would recommend one of the large prawn options. Not at all expensive.

This is where I thought I would end up marrying the chef for her lovely Tom Yam soup. Food was served in generous proportions, though I had to wonder and guess how the food would be presented.

This restaurant was recommended by Lonely Planet as one of the best in Negombo. It was very ordinary - couldn't do cocktails as no bar man, disgusting sea food chowder. Just not very good when most food in Sri Lanka is excellent.

So called "A little bit for everybody" offer, should be good for the people who in fact don't know what to eat. Anyway, we read some good reviews, so we decided to try. Maybe they don't prepare a bad food there, but when we saw...More

Tusker Restaurant opened in May 2011 to cater to every food loving people. The cozy atmosphere and lots of open space is very relaxing. Beside Tusker Restaurant being solar powered we are using a lot of ingredients from our own farm, like eggs,pepper,chilies,bananas,mangoes,lime and lemon. We also support very much feeding mothers,children with or without special needs and our dear friends the dogs. Our restaurant is of course wheelchair friendly as well. Come with your family to enjoy the evening. We speak French,Dutch,English and German.
