We then dined overlooking the views of the river. Sear fish was lovely and the home made ice cream with honey and nuts we needed... read more

This restaurant is located along the river a few miles inland but a 400-500 rupies tuk-tuk ride will get you back and forth. They have a small menu of seafood but romantic setting. Make a reservation to get one of the seafront tables.

This is the best dining experience we have ever had. It's a very intimate little restaurant, set on the banks of a beautiful tranquil lake. The restaurant itself is set in a little court yard with approximately 4 or 5 tables all are candles with beautiful. Its the cheapest food price we found in bentota as the price included a... More

Good seafood. Portion size was good and food was very tasty. View by the lake gave a nice ambiance. Mango juice was below average and 10% service charge is a bit much for such an establishment, especially when food takes a while to be served.

We had a wonderful lunch at Diya Sisila last week. The setting was very relaxing and the food was delicious! We tried different varieties of seafood including the diya sisila special and spicy prawns. Would say that spicy prawns was the icing on the cake- if you can take the heat you should definitely try it! The proprietor of the... More

It is absolutely fair that this restaurant holds the no.1 rank in Bentota. The food totally met, or even exceeded the expectations. They specialize in fish and seafood. Freshest jumbo prawns (almost as big as my hand) were amazing, and I was truly sad to see the last one go. The portion was just too big for me! The dinner... More

We went as two families of 8 ppl on reading trip advisor reviews. We got there and were presented the menu. We enquired about size of the prawns and asked can we see the prawns. Strangely the chef came out and said we can't show you the prawns as we are busy. When we asked again he said you have... More
