Seafood doesn't get fresher than this - we were having a drink and watching the sunset, and the waiter asked if we were planning to have dinner there too. We said we were, but later on in the evening - which was ideal as the owner was out on his boat and made sure he brought back a particularly tasty fish for us - and it was the biggest I've seen served to one person! Really personal service, and eating with your toes in the sand is an experience not to miss. We ended up eating here twice as the seafood was such high quality - jumbo prawns were second to none, not to mention the special home made sauce!

We chose this based on TripAdvisor reviews and heartily agree with the highly rated reviews! The waiter told us what was fresh (and therfore best). As we are in low season they don't have everything fully stocked but what is fresh - the jumbo prawns and calamari - were delicious. And their special sauce is very tasty too. Such a treat to be able to eat directly on the beach with the waves lapping just metres away. And they do serve beer!

This was our second visit to Sri Lanka and we were straight back to Coral Reef for our dinners. We were there every evening - we love the food. I think I had the best fish ever - fresh, nicely cooked with a nice salad on a side. Devil's calamari are to die for. My husband enjoyed a generous portion of fresh jumbo prawns every night.

The owners of the restaurant - Sam and his wife Lalanti are very friendly and helpful around the area and available tours. We are very grateful for their help when we were in trouble.

We are planning to come back to Sri Lanka next year, and yes - we'll be at the Coral Reef every night without doubts.

We arrived short after opening hour and they still served us fresh lobster perfectly cooked with home made sauce. If you want to eat there it is important to know that there are chairs right next to the Coral Reef that belongs to the restaurant next door.

We found this great place thanks to TripAdvisor reviews and yet they are very true! The food is excelent, fish is fresh and very very tasty. Even our 4,5 year old, picky from time to time :-) son liked the food. The staff is very nice and friendly.
We wish we found them earlier so we could have eaten there more often!
