The Shore By O!

A perfect spot on the beach, with good food and fantastic drinks!

Reviewed By MichaelG461

My friend and I were searching for a bar to go to in Colombo and were fortunate to have this suggested by one of the locals.Situated right beside the beach this bar serves alcoholic drinks (cheap by Western Standards), with 500ml of Lion lager approximately 300 rupees (£2.30). You can either sit on the beach or under cover in the 2 storied bar. There is also live music with good quality bands and individuals performing.

The service at this hotel has remained intelligent & excellent. We partook of some refreshments; both western & local. The waiter though young and new to his job was impressive. His attitude was v.good & technique suggested good training.

It's a major improvement from the race Course location. Now they are on the first floor of the Colombo City Center - Not in the food court but almost above the main entrance.With a massive screen playing sports and several other screens it does have a sports pub atmosphere but all the commentaries are muted for the sake of music.Although its a pub they still haven't got a liquor license therefore they do not have any liquor for sale. However all the staff including the Manager are extremely accommodating and they allow you to bring your own bottles without a charge as long as you eat. This is the only eatery in the entire City Center, serving Pork. But the food here is not that great.The other catch is although own bottles are allowed there is no liquor store in the building. The Food City in the basement does not sell liquor. As such remember to pickup your bottles on the way. Cargillls on Staples Street and Keels at Crescat seem to be the closest liquor stores but they close at 9 p.m. The Manager is so obliging and nice, if they are not too busy he might even send someone to buy your bottle for youThere's a smokers' balcony too at one end.

We visit Sri Lanka very frequently and stay at Mt Lavinia but somehow had never found this hidden gem! We were recommended this lovely restaurant by a friend so we went to check it out during the morning and found it looked spotlessly clean, hence decided to book for the evening. We had a lovely table for five outside. The menu was excellent, not too big but lots to like. They sold draught beer which was a bonus and it was very reasonable too. The food was really reasonably priced as well. I had the baked crab and loved it! The service was terrific. We had a very attentive waiter who was hilarious. He kept us well amused with his great sense of humour! There was great music too by a father and daughter combination. They sang/ played familiar songs and it wasn't too loud! We'll definitely be back on our next visit in September! Can't wait!
