It really is worth taking the sunset row round the lake - not a great deal to see but wonderfully relaxing. The menu is limited but that is why you go there. Everything served is excellent. And the staff are absolutely lovely A MUST

Agree with everything on TA about this place. The lobster & chili prawns we ate last night were cooked beautifully. The price also includes a salad starter and a dessert of ice cream with nuts and treacle. Raseen looked after us so very well and it was a pleasure to chat with him and the restaurant owner/chef.

We managed to get a table by arriving very early(6pm) and managed to get a lakeside table were you can hear the fish jumping out of the water and look out at the water. The menu is very short but offers very fresh food perfectly cooked. The service is very friendly. This is a top spot for a romantic dinner.

Like all the other reviews say, this place is beautiful and scenic and the food is to die for. I'm not even really a mad seafood lover (in fact I rarely eat it) but the garlic and onion prawns were epic! Staff are such a delight, very friendly. The seating is very romantic as the tables are dotted throughout the... More

If you're in Bentota/Induruwa and looking for a decent (if a little pricey) restaurant then Diya Sisila would be a wise choice. It's not 5*, but the service is excellent, the food was delicious (I had the fish with a pineapple relish - would definitely order it again), and the table on the far end overlooking the lake was beautiful.

On first arrival the setting seems nice enough, if a little under lit and slightly eerie (no music or guests). Then the sweet but slightly odd waiter shows you to a table and hands you a laminated menu with a choice of just 5 items. At this point we were wondering if we had got the right place, could this...
