This restaurant inside Avani hotel is a little hidden gem of Bentota. The menu is a bit short but all the dishes are fantastic. Not really expensive and worth to experience. Dessert wise the chocolate mouse is very good.

The chef Dilan made our meals to a very good experiance! Especially the special meal with Red Snapper which wasn't on the ordinariy meny! Waiters Ashan and Vidurajnga made a good job. We tried 2 wines on the list and we can absolutely recommend Orange River from South Africa both the red and the white. Fresh good food cooked with care! More expensive than most Lankesian restaurants but absolutely worth it!

Nice setting and ambience, good mix between international and local menu with great quality execution to a very attractive price. An extra thank you to our waiter Ashen for great service and sense of final touch.

We thought we'd treat ourselves to their Christmas special 4 course dinner.
The ambience was nice and the service started well. The dishes were all presented very well.
My vegetarian starter was odd, a 'pinwheel' of beetroot filling and soggy bread. OK but odd texture. My tomato soup was tomatoes in stock... it was like they had forgotten to blend it and was weak tasting.
The main seafood dish was very good, no complaints there.
For dessert it was a dry Christmas cake. OK at best. I had a weird tasting chocolate mousse.
Finally we paid and we didn't get any change for nearly 30 minutes, which was frustrating when you just saw the waiters standing around, why aren't they bringing the change? Especially as we had to pay with 2 big bills so was expecting a lot of change. It wasn't comfortable and poor when it was so quiet. We missed the fireworks waiting for that change!

OK experience but I do think a large element of style over substance.

Go to Malis seafood over the road/railway line... a thousand times better and cheaper!
