Went with my girlfriend. It was a little out of season and so were the only one's in the restaurant. Service was naturally attentive but not overbearing. There is a minimal menu, as everything is brought in fresh each day. We shared the chili prawns and garlic lobster. The prawns were fantastic, but the lobster was better at Malli's. Sat... More

We visited Restaurant Diya Sisila this summer. It was a perfect evening for our family. The location is hidden, but beautiful. The service is good, but not intrusive. And the food is just splendid. Perhaps we will come back some day.

A superb dinner of lobster and prawns. We were staying at Saman Villas and wanted to eat out. A short and entertaining Tuk Tuk ride and we arrived at this lovely place in a serene lakeside setting. The two guys running it were engaging and made sure we were well looked after. As it was dark, so we returned for... More

Amazing food, we order the lobsters with butter lemon and another with curry srilanka style. Both were very very tasty. And we ordered also as appetizers calamari and shrimps, superbly done. At the end, the chef offered us vanilla honey homemade ice cream topped with almonds, out of this world! ! We were for persons, and the bill was rp... More

When you ring to make a booking, ask about the availability of one of the two overwater intimate tables, really adds to the atmosphere, and as others have noted, get there 30 mins before sunset for the maximum benefit of great photo opportunities . Whilst the menu is limited, if you can each handle 2 lobsters and salads for only... More

My daughter and I had the chilli jumbo prawns and the lobster, some very refreshing starter salads and finished with desert. The... More

This is a great place which deserves the little drive away from the beach. Not too expensive compared with beachside lobster or king prawns. We had a very friendly welcome. The restaurant is cosy, even when you're not sitting near the lake. Very good and well presented diner, nicely decorated table.
