The location can't be beat, but we found the food rather bland and slightly below average compared to our other experiences on our three-week trip. We did enjoy the fire dancer, and the live musician, who came around to all the tables, but was not...More

This place was recommended to us. It was a bit expensive but the service was good. Very touristic... which I don't like but the food was very good. Tuna sashimi was the best in a long time. The prawns were delicious as was the lobster.

An elegant restaurant, but nothing else is exceptional about this place. Food and service is good, as in other restaurants around. I recommend prawn salad.

Beautifull view on the sea, great service and lovely fresh fish (freshly caught the same day). Prices are good, payment by creditcard or cash.

Have never experienced such rude behaviour. Our waiter Kavi, was terribly rude and the much anticipated meal was insipid. Don't order the prawn soup... You can't drink it

Lovely evening meal with live guitarist/vocalist visiting tables. Best meal on the beach, good selection of wines. Price is slightly more than you would expect to pay elsewhere in Unawatuna, but reasonable despite this. Staff are pushing for TripAdvisor reviews, which was a little akward.

The hotel has a restaurant so there is most probably and outside toilet you can get changed in. However I am not sure if there are showering facilities.
