We had dinner on one of the restaurants floating tables (platform set on two canoes). We started off our meal with a few drinks whilst being taken around Bentota ganga. Would highly recommend the lobster sri lankan style.

My friend and I ate lunch at Diya Sisila on November 10th - and definitely expected something extra, but was sadly disappointed. The fried fish was battered and the grilled fish was not cooked (raw at the bone). Both were served with french fries instead...More
