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

The food. The view. The service. Everything was top-notch! We stopped in on out way from Mirissa to the airport, for lunch, and it was superb. If you can get there before (or after) lunch to sit at the table on the lake, it's an amazing treat. We had the Sri-Lankan style prawns and garlic butter fish, both meals were... More

What a beautiful place by the lake..appropriate time to visit is during dusk when the colours of the setting sun make the surrounding very picturesque.. Ordered chilli garlic tossed prawns with herbed rice..JUMBO prawns..succulent..burst of flavours in the mouth.. It seems the owner has done up the place very passionately..it reflects in the food and the overall ambience..amazing staff..ever smiling... More

We had an excellent dinner here. If you book the table ask the romantic pavillion by the lake. The smile of the personnel is so welcoming, charming and natural. We had shrimps and fish, both where well prepare and not over cooked, which is so often problem in Asia. White wine was excellent and decent priced. Really excellent experience. Tuk... More

Not much food to choose from on the menu but the prawns we had were the tastiest prawns we have ever eaten. Only two members of staff and so very friendly. The food was served to us quicker here than other restaurants where they had more staff.

Its my second review, everytime im in my home country I go to Betota just to eat at this place. This time I had to write again simply because the chef has out done himself again. We get all sorts of seafood here in Hong Kong and the locals love freshness, but this right here is hands down the best... More
