We enjoyed a lovely seafood platter as part of a special (Valentine's month) deal with a bottle of good wine.

None of the plates we ordered were not up to any decent taste. Tasteless food,  and the supervisor was not interested  even if we complained about the food. Very disappointing, I will not recommend this place to anybody!

Great dinner in King Coconut - with Negombo being one of Sri Lanka's main fishing ports, the seafood was delicious, the drinks were reasonably priced, and the service was excellent. Strongly recommended.
