I really liked this place. - Not too expensive, great setting and very good food. My chicken Kiev and Chips was nice. My husband said his calamari was excellent, though he would have liked to have a slightly bigger portion of rice (it was very small). I also had a strawberry milkshake which was very milky and could have done... More

This Resturant refused to cook curry and rice! This was on their menu which had a 1 hour wait, and refused because they were busy!!! On top of this they wanted to charge two different prices for wine corkage1200-2000rp, but hardly stock wines advertised on their menu. Don't bother going unless you like cigarette smoke and Mosquitos.

We had some lovely fresh prawns here and the prices were good. You can choose from lots of different fresh seafood or there are other options on the menu too.

Good beach restaurant in Bentota. They serve a lot of good sea food, however, they are somewhat on the pricey side. If you want to have a table with a good view it's advisable to reserve in advance.

Arrived by tuktuk and had a thoroughly enjoyable meal with a bottle of Sri Lankan White Wine, (who knew?) The trigger fish was very meaty and well cooked, fries were excellent. Other half had 'devilled' mixed seafood. It was huge! I thought it was more of a cross between a BBQ and a sweet and sour sauce, either way, it... More

A regular decent restaurant by the beach serving food and drinks on the beach... But nothing spectacular we found about the same to remember / revisit.

This is a great restaurant. We went for the first time and we had grilled prawns and fish curry. The fish curry was delicious, we ordered it spicy, but we like really spicy food. But medium would do. The prawns were juicy and fresh and just right! The second time we had prawn curry, and that was even better than... More
