Our party of six had an enjoyable lunch at this beach side restaurant. Tables are placed in the shade so you are able to relax and refresh yourself after time in the sun/sea. The menu offers you snacks as well as main courses. Breakfasts are also served here. Prices are in the moderate range. Staff are very friendly.

Some of the best seafood we've had. I've never seen prawns as big. Very tasty and good value. Also enjoyed the pancakes for desert

Good restaurant in a reasonable price range. I had the full Sri Lanka Curry. Really enjoyed it! Service is good - however one of the young employees kept on approaching me when my boyfriend was in the restroom. Sort of inappropriate. The other waiters were great.

Our group of 12 adults and children were easily accommodated for dinner without a reservation. The location was excellent as we had spent the afternoon playing on the beach. Service was excellent, staff was attentive and the food arrived quickly (something not to be taken for granted with small children). All the food was excellent, this seems to be one... More

We visited this restaurant twice in our 7 day stay in Unawatuna. Fish was delicious while still keeping my vegetarian boyfriend happy. Super friendly staff too.
