The food was AMAZING. We read a couple of positive reviews but weren't expecting it to live up to it, but it was spot on. All thru our stay in Sri Lanka this was easily the best. The manager and chef were genuinely very friendly and welcoming. If you are in this region food wise this should be your 1st... More

Great food, run by a couple of really nice guys. The best lobster I've ever had and massive chillie prawns washed down with cold lion beer all at a very good price. Thanks for a great evening...highly recommended!

Nandama and Rashim made us very welcome and after taking my sister and friends there to eat every day for 5 weeks we can honestly say the food and... More

we decided to go to Diya Sisila as it was rated number 1. It was fantastic in terms of setting overlooking the river. Food was fab but what really made it was the lovely guy running it who was extremely welcoming. We ended up going back the following night and had dinner with his two lovely children. I would strongly... More

We found this restaurant when searching on trip advisor and luckily we did as we probably wouldn't of found it otherwise. Needless to say it most definitely didn't disappoint. Firstly the view is fantastic but be sure to get there early to see the sun go down and book the lagoon table. The service and food was faultless we had... More

Liked: The owner, the fresh seafood, the location on the lagoon with the pedalos (shame we didn't get the chance to use them as it was just dark), the starter + dessert when you order a min course Just try and convince a tuk tuk to take you there as cheap as possible! Should be no more than 300 rupees... More

If you want peace, seclusion and great authentic Sri Lankan food, then this is the place for you. Getting there was 10-15mins from Saman Villas in Bentota by tuk tuk. Went down a few secluded dirt roads to get there, but what a gorgeous little set up they have. The gardens with their 6 tables was just a gorgeous little... More

We visited this restaurant on the recommendation of friends that live in Bentota, and can see why. We visited the day before to book the table and choice from the menu, which is recommended as they will get the fish, fresh from the market the morning of you booking. I would also suggest if going as a couple, to ask... More

Without doubt the Diya Sisila is the best restaurant in the Bentota area. It has to be amongst my favourite restaurants I have visited anywhere the world. Why you may well ask. The setting for the restaurant is stunningl. In the middle of nowhere, with a beautiful waterside setting. There are very few tables, probably only 5 and they are... More
