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

Wonderful location very peaceful and relaxing , food is excellent a very small menu but still hard to choose from as each choice seems better than the last ! Each table is a good distance apart so you feel as if you have private dining . Owner and staff very friendly .

This restaurant is about 5km from most of the Bentota beach hotels, and so you will need a three wheeler. The restaurant is set in a very lovely garden, in a relatively rural location, adjacent to a lake. All the tables are outside, but although we went at night there was no sign of mosquitoes. One table is set on... More

In a nutshell, after 12 days touring the country and eating at high-end or at least well-rated restaurants - and rarely being totally satisfied - this was the single best gastronomical experience we had! Don't miss it. Just go with the waiter/owner's suggestions and you're very likely to enjoy every minute of it. Look for the one table that stretches... More

Just had the most fabulous meal at Diya Sisila, you will need to get a tuktuk or taxi to it as it is a little off the beaten track. Its not a huge place but has a fantastic position looking out over the lake, we could not fully appreciate as it was dark when we arrived. The food here is... More

We choose this restaurant thanks to trip advisor and it definitely lived up to its reviews. The restaurant was really quiet but that didn't matter. We had a really good table overlooking the lake and listening to the frogs sing! The prawns Sri Lankan style were delicious and huge!! Thank you so much have recommended this place to our holiday...

We went here because it was ranked very high on trip advisor, and because we where put of by the restaurant prices of our hotel after 2 weeks of traveling trough Sri Lanka. Only to find that this place was a little bit more expensive than our hotel. This restaurant has only a couple of tables in a beautiful garden.... More
