We had our dinner at Seafood cave yesterday. The atmosphere was very good and food was very tasty. My kids enjoyed it very much. Very fresh seafood that you can rarely find.

My husband and I went on a dinner date and had a lovely evening with good food and a beach to idly pass time on staring at the stars.

A real treat. Amazing selection of seafood cooked to order any way you like. Sitting on a beach with a delightful view of the ocean and Colombo in the distance with perfect food. What more can you ask for. Being serenaded with guitar players willing to sing a song of your choice was a bonus. Attentive staff. Very memorable evening... More

The favourite place for me in Sri Lanka to eat seafood. And every time the first place to bring freinds family and colleagues when they arrive to get the taste of Sri Lanka and to set the expectation level. Choose your fish crab ect from ice bed and ask to make it as you like, but relay on the suggestions... More
