Nice enough setting, but the food is very expensive for what you get, we live in this area and the menu really needs an update, you can get much better food at other places for much less

Had a nice dinner with family, try the Mix Grill or the Sizzling Pork Chop. You can enjoy a quite meal away from all the busyness right next to a beautiful pond. Friendly staff with great service. Two thumbs up 👍👍.

We had 2 diners here. Service was good and there is plenty to choose from. Try the specials for 2! Closes rather early - at 22:00 the place is dead.

We really liked this restaurant and its ambience at night. We dined there on several occasions and always booked a table by the open window.

It was a good choice for vegetarians and seafood lovers and we thoroughly enjoyed our meals. There was... More

Fantastic restaurant. Cannot fault the staff they are friendly and know their job so well they are absolutely spot on. The menu is the most varied in bentota I do not like fish so found a lot of the places very restricted with choice but not here. Beautiful setting and the owner is a great guy as well. Well done...

Followed... More
