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

I think this was one of my favourite restaurants ever. We were the only ones there the night we went, which could have been extremely awkward but wasn't. Their menu was very small but good, ad the chef told us that he only buys in what he needs for the amount of guests he'll receive each night, so it's essential... More

The place is very nice, pleasant, and well organized. The food is excellent specially the butter and garlic shrimp. The staff (David, and Haishm) are very professional, kind, and generous. I highly recommend the place.

Lovely, romantic setting and very good food. The owner takes great care to ensure his guests enjoy their experience. A good place for an intimate dinner for two.

Cuttlefish, prawns in garlic and fish in sauce with rice. A feast for two. The menu is very small but the food is outrageously good and of top quality. Staying at the Vavanta by Taj hotel got a tuk tuk, which took 15mins to reach the restaurant. The driver waited and then drove us back to the hotel for 700... More
