We came here twice during our two week stay. Had the seafood platter on both occasions, it was great value for money and really lovely food. Lovely atmosphere and great cocktails. Fresh seafood, it's swimming in the tank downstairs as you walk in! Worth a visit if In bentota.

I ate once there . You can choose your fish and they will weigh it for you and tell you the price that you should pay. The service is fast . The food is delicious. but it is expensive if you compared with price of the same food in other restaurant s in srilanka .

Our fantastic tuk tuk guide, Denis Tours took us here after another place we identified was a little to far away. He had already advised us that the Goldern Grill was the best in the... More

We acted on a Tuk Tuk drivers recommendation, always a risky strategy. However on this occasion we were rewarded. The staff don't speak very good English, but the seafood and service was excellent.

Papaya salad was actually mango salad. Local Lion beer are beautiful lager, you should try. This restaurant was recommended for me as Indian restaurant with great green chicken curry etc. but it is not. Seafood very delicious, yep. You should try lobster for sure.
