We popped in here a couple of times for a cold beer and seafood on the way back to our hotel from the beach and it was great. The prawn curry was delicious and full fish left us rolling around on the floor we were so full. The guys play some good tunes, prices are reasonable, not as pushy as... More

If you are at bentota go there and have some dinner. The young owner is so nice. The restaurant is on the first floor. You can here the ocean while eating. The food and the wine are very good. Try the eggplants as appetizer

We popped in here for a cold drink after a really hot couple of hours on the beach. Didn't strike me as somewhere I necessarily wanted to eat (although other people were) but the view is great, and as it's an elevated bar the breeze was fabulous. The staff play Sri Lankan drums in the evening.

This restaurant is lovely-you can eat overlooking the ocean and away from the hubbub of Unawatuna's main sprawl. The pizzas are really delicious-and of course no one comes to Sri Lanka to eat pizza, but as a change it really does the job. The traditional food is also great quality and the restaurant has a peaceful, romantic atmosphere. Service was... More
