Amazing ! Rustic, Secluded, Welcoming.

We ate here twice in 4 days so we were obviously impressed. It is refreshing to find a restaurant which can list all it's menu on just 2 pages. Between our party of 4 we tried most of the dishes and they were all absolutely excellent. Perfectly cooked and presented. Service was brilliant - our... read more

Great meal in a great setting. Pricey for Sri Lanka though. The staff were very attentive and the food excellently cooked.

I have eaten here before but it never fails to deliver . You must book and choose your meal at least one day ahead to avoid disappointment ,but oh so much worth the effort . I had prawn curry with the biggest prawns ever delicious . Superb in every way . Thank you will be back again .

This restaurant is small and has a restricted menu but this shouldn't stop you visiting, the food is excellent, the setting is very peaceful and the service is friendly and efficient. The meal we had at this restaurant was the best we found in the area not only for quality and ambience but also great value for money. Top Drawer..!!!!!!!!!

We phoned ahead as we were a party of nine eating a bit later than usual and were well accommodated. The menu is as has been mentioned previously a little limited but to be honest, that matters not as what they do have they do really well. The setting is lovely, the beer is cold and the chilli prawns are... More

Yes it is good value for money as compared to other places in Bentota, but you need to be a hardcore sea food lover to enjoy this place. Extremely limited menu, no options besides prawns, fish and lobsters (again v limited within each category)....and be prepared to wait for min 45 mins to 1 hour for food to be served... More

There are 2 island tables. Food may take a long time. Chicken schnitzel is very good. Chili prawns epic. If you don't like seafood then this isn't the right restaurant for you. ONE CRITICISM:Quite a lot of Mosquitos.

The place is a quiet lovely setting next to a lake. Service was prompt and friendly. Love limited menu. We had a grilled fish and vegetables, which was delicious. I did think the tab was very expensive, around 3900 for 2.
