An absolutely amazing place! The owner, Nanando, took us around the island on the lake on a raft while the sun set before coming back for the best Sri Lankan curry. This is a "must go to" place. Beautiful food, perfect host and idyllic setting. Take a tuk tuk to get there for just 800 rupees. Fantastic!! Peter & Christie... More

Superb!!!! And highly recommended to everyone who is looking for an actual authentic Sri Lankan dinner experience. Me and my boyfriend came here following TripAdvisor recommendations and we were amazed by location, service and food. We had the best seafood and service so far in Srilanka: the staff was so kind and interested to give their recommendations as well as... More

A little oasis away from Bentota village at which you are made to feel extremely welcome. The menu is mainly seafood based but the chicken curry is highly recommended, the staff are so friendly & are genuinely interested in your enjoyment of their work, everything is freshly made to order which could mean a small wait but the location is...

Dining here was absolutely fantastic. The service was amazing, the food lovely and the atmosphere very relaxed. You are situated just by the lake and can choose to dine on little islands just on the lake. Choose from a variety of fish, prawns and lobster and be sure you get a high quality 3-course meal. I had the chili prawns,... More

We stumbled by when walking in the neighbourhood near our accommodation. The owner and team were just putting finishing touchers on a new "pier" seating area for two people & very kindly offered us a seat on a neighbouring pier and offered us coconut full of water, lovely. AS they were closed, we sad we'd return a few days later... More

A lovely setting, friendly attentive staff, and excellent fresh food. What else could one want from a restaurant? I recommend this as one of the better places in Bentota - worth finding a trusty tuk tuk driver to take you and pick you up. Not a place to rush - take your time and savor.

Owner and staff are very nice and helpful when advising on what to eat. The owner is also the chef and so was willing to make us things not on the menu. If possible get the one table on the decking right next to the water. There is only one table so book before and request or miss out. Was... More

This is a lovely restaurant, set on the river, offering very personal service. The owner and the main waiter are very friendly, offering any advice on the local area you might want. Food is cooked to order. We went twice in a 3 night stay in Bentota and had fabulous calamari, prawn curry and swordfish. You can take your own... More

Very courteous staff; fresh, delightfully tasty seafood. The complimentary dessert of ice-cream & honey was smashing. The owner is a humble and friendly chap; took time out to interact with his guests and bid us goodbye. Nice environs and would offer a very nice lakeview; unfortunately, was already dark when we arrived for dinner. Could be the ideal setting for... More
