Super lobster, nice atmosphere.

This is a great place which deserves the little drive away from the beach. Not too expensive compared with beachside lobster or king prawns. We had a very friendly welcome. The restaurant is cosy, even when you're not sitting near the lake. Very good and well presented diner, nicely decorated table.

Would have been better before dark for the view. Very quiet and romantic when we were there. Best fish meal (seer fish) i had in the fortnight.

We had a great experience at Diya Sisila. The seafood was the best we have ever eaten. The staff were lovely and very attentive. We were sorry we hadn't arrived a little earlier as it was dark and we didn't get to see the views of the lake. A must visit restaurant!

Beautiful final meal of our 3 week holiday through Sri Lanka and a very romantic setting on the water, watching the sun go down. Make sure you get there in good time to see the sunset over the lake and book a table overlooking the water. Food was delicious and staff were friendly and helpful.

Although the food was nice ( grilled fish ), and the staff very friendly Easy to get to if you are staying at the other and definitely more interesting and value for money than eating at the hotel but I would recommend other places instead for a more rewarding lunch experience I am happy with the

This place at wonderful location ...sitting right on backwaters is quite an amazing experience . The owner and serving members were very friendly . But the food menu is really limited to 3-4 dishes and they are over prized for the quantity they serve . More options in Menu and inclusion some breads and quantity of meals can definitely make...

Lovely restaurant, really fresh seafood with tasty spices. Nice little spot out by a lake. There's 3 huts right on the lake with private dining area. Food reasonably priced. Probably costs €3/4 return in a tuk tuk to get there, but worth the effort. Nice staff too
