Expensive for what you get, no attention to details, cocktails are good though. I dint understand all the great comments, the seafood platter is very poor. Music is not for dinner but rather for late party..not enjoyable when you re trying to spend nicr dinner tine with friends

As simple as the title, went there 3 times in a week, the best Sri Lankan curry. Excellent service, particular mention for Chintha, a brilliant waiter. A beautiful setting on Unawatuna beach.

Both the food and staff are amazing! The staff is serviceminded, positive and helpful. The food, especially the seafood is so delicate and tastes amazing. We saw the fish and prawns coming in the same day their were caught, and the chef made us all fantastic dishes the same evening. We also ate rice and curry- it tasted great! Black... More

Great spot, kids had tuna sandwich and the club sandwich was very good. The catch of the day (fish) was well cooked and very nice. Service was better than most places we went to.

Had a lovely meal here with my partner. Food was absolutely delicious. Staff are very professional and kind. So far the best restaurant in Sri Lanka. Great atmosphere. Calm and relaxing restaurant.

Great service. We had the seafood platter and it was AMAZING! And well priced! Best seafood I can ever remember eating. The only meal we had in Sri Lanka where chips weren't the best part of it. Also the waiters didn't ask us (two young female travelers) to come party afterwards, which was a welcome departure from the norm.

Read the cocktail recommendations. Had a great dinner in the rain (under cover). Their reputations for Mojitos are well founded. Thank you to the staff. Enjoyed ourselves immensely over our weeks stay.

A great little beach restaurant for dinner (changes the ambient completely from daytime); nice staff, excellent sea food. I would definitely recommend it, quality food and great tastes.
