Great place to have a drink and eat something on the beach. You can also chill in a hang mat. Great view in the shade. Service is a little slow, but correct.

If you are looking for the Robinson Crusoe feeling, please go to the beaches in front of Mangrove Garden! Great service, delicious fish dishes and places to relax between the palm trees. You cannot miss this place when visiting Tangalle!

We were blown away about by this island paradise in Tangalle. Situated on a virtually deserted stretch of beach (unlike the messy, busy Tangalle beach on the other side of the lagoon), the location is exquisite if you are looking for a quiet stay. Hammocks...More

The food in here is above average for Tangalle, but not more than average compared to the rest of Sri Lanka.

We found this listed in Lonely Planet and decided to check it out as we were desperate for good food options in Tangalle. It was a wonderful discovery, but its quite hard to find in the dark, so going there for dinner the first time was probably not a great idea! We liked it so much that we returned the next day for lunch too. Location & ambiance are great. Food was good value for money & it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere that is great for chillin. Would probably book their cabanas for a nice beach holiday next time. Great place!
