Fodor's Expert Review The Lagoon
One of several dining options in the Cinnamon Grand Hotel, this romantic candlelit choice focuses on seafood and consistently receives some of the best reviews in the city. This charming restaurant with an outdoor terrace beside a manmade lagoon places its emphasis on variety, freshness, and quality. You can select from the fresh catch of the day—including huge lobster—then mix and match your own sauce, cooking method (grilled, steamed, curried, etc.), and style (Sri Lankan, Chinese, Indian, Thai, or Continental). Or if that's too confusing, go for one of the more established classics, such as lobster bisque. The prices here may be sky high by Sri Lankan standards, but they would not break the bank most other places.
