We went from a chaotic Hikkaduwa to Tangalle. When stumbling in upon this place it totally revolutionalised our trip! Very nice, chilled out and helpful staff. The food was awesome. Come here and Putha and Co will take care of you!

I heard great things about this place for it's Rottis. Unfortunately it wasn't open for lunch. On the whole though it looked very welcoming, and has a nice little beach terrace and a large dining area across the road

We had a lovely short stay at Starfish. The manager was friendly and helpful, and a great cook! He arranged a trip to Rekawa for us to see the turtles, and was a great host. The driver he booked for us was also great and chatty. Room was clean and tidy, and location by the sea was perfect. Would definitely...

The owner Putha takes great pride in his running of Starfish and loves nothing more than sharing a glass of arrack, the local liquor, with his guests. The food was great, the room clean and its proximity to the beach means you fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing against the sands. The porch area looking out to...

We popped in for lunch purely because of the novelty of the roti hut sign looking like Pizza Hut. It was lovely to sit out on the beach front and have 2 chicken rotis, they were cooked fresh right behind us in the outdoor kitchen and were really tasty. We then also chose to have a coconut roti for desert...

We had lunch here and got the smallest and saltiest kuttu. Also had a fruit salad that cost 350 rupees which was so small. It was a joke really it consisted of half a banana a tiny slice of pineapple. I could have bought entire the entire fruits for much less. Its frustrating because people flock here because its in...

“The rooms are really all similar, found the smaller ones to be best value but the upstairs ones would have been nice for a view. All have the wonderful sound of ocean waves crashing on the beach”
