This Restaurant was just ten minutes walk from our hotel (Riverside Inn Fuji), but would be no further from the larger Bentota Hotels. We called one afternoon to have a look at the menu. There are some lovely tables set on their own overlooking the river. The waiter said he only had one left and we should book for tonight,... More

Decided to eat here as staying at Avani Bentota as only over the road. Both fish dishes (shark steak and garlic prawns ) were delicious, followed by a Ceylon cup (coconut with rum and ice cream, is a must try) including drinks came to £20. Lovely views and great customer service. Well recommended.

restaurant has a good location with views across the lake and it is very pleasant to sit outside in pleasant surroundings. The seafood platters looked very tempting, but unfortunately did not live up to expectations as everything was very over cooked,particularly the lobsters which were virtually impossible to remove from their shells. The meal was not inexpensive and the restaurant... More

was one of the most expensive meals in Sri lanka and since it was night time we could see anything from our table. the building is old and needs renovation. I had the lobster and my wife had a "boneless" chicken that wasnt boneless. if you want to go i would recommend lunch and not dinner

The Chef was amazing. The Ginger Prawns were the best prawns I do believe I have had. The green salad is so tasty as is the Chop Suey Vegetable dish and the seafood Chop Suey. I would recommend this restaurant to all of my friends. Everyone is SOOOOO kind.

This was a disappointment. Food and shisha are both overpriced for the quality. I ordered a boneless chicken dish which came full of bones and was very oily. Shisha was charged by the hour at 1800rupees which was much more expensive than anywhere else we tried. Ambiance wasn't great either..so many better places to try in bentota!
