We were having a meal with the group we were on holiday with. As we don't eat fish we chose the beef steak with mushroom sauce. The rest of the group had all eaten their meals and we were still waiting. Eventually our 'steak' arrived and we were both given lumps of meat which were impossible to cut. The manager... More

We have found it difficult to get local cuisine on Unawatuna beach with so many beachfront eateries catering to the Western diet. Summer Garden was recommended by a local tuk tuck driver and did not disappoint. I went an hour before we wanted to eat to place our order, and our family of five returned for a very generous dinner... More

Summer Garden looks a bit average from the street but the staff are warm and welcoming, food delicious, portions huge and you are right over the ocean. Plus it is open late! Go for the seafood platter-up to the standard of the ones on Hikkaduwa unlike a lot of places in Unawatuna. Enjoy!
