Although it was raining at the time of our arrival, we have chose fresh jumbo prawns, crabs and fish for our dinner. The prices were slightly above average but quantity-wise acceptable. The grilled jumbo prawns were particularly tasty while the curry crabs in the local style was also nice. Worth to try and the location is easy to identify.

Ate here last night from the ala carte menu as the fish although looked good, we thought was a bit over priced plus we are not the sort of people who can pick what we want killed to eat!! Food was lovely, steak for main but had three prawns each to start which were huge!!! Highly recommended

The Restaurant was recommended by our German friends as it belongs to a local guy married to a German lady. Very attentive staff, fresh delicious sea food. Don't miss dessert "ananas surprise".

Great fresh fish. This place is tucked away from the main road but is easily found either from the road or walking along the beach. Great place for lunch - relaxed board short casual, but don't expect gap years students, it's not that sort of place and you wouldn't want it to be.

We ordered fresh jumbo prawns and crabs for our meal. You need to select the fish you want to eat. The prawns were grilled and served in Sri lankan masala and were quite tasty. The crab was made in a curry and served. It was slightly expensive but all in all a good meal.

They have a good restaurant with good ambiance. We could select any sea food/Crab live from the various tanks there. We also tried beef steak..tasty. The beach is just 3 minutes walk from the restaurant and they also serve there for extra 20% service charge. We enjoyed the sea, got wet there. Spent some time on the beach chairs provided... More

Fresh Mussels with garlic base. diant prawns and squids- yummy. the hotel is god with friendly and pleasant staff. It is located on the beach. If you are luck enough you can get a seat close to the water edge and get lost in the cool waters and fresh breexe. The restaurant also has free wi-fi

Fantastic crabs and huge prawns, and they'll make it as spicy as you like. Wonderful flavours! Not the cheapest, but worth the price, and you can pick and price the seafood you want (by weight) before you enter the restaurant. Upstairs much nicer than downstairs, as your in a covered no-wall area, with great breeze and atmosphere. The travelling mistral... More
