I've been to the AIDA on serveral trips to Sri Lanka. The food has always been fab, the service has always been incredible. However, during my 4 week stay in aluthgama this time, my family and I visited the AIDA on at least 15 occasions. My 4 year old son would only really eat well if we took Him here.... More

We only go here for drinks Nimal is the best barman in the resort, he is always friendly smiling and helpful. In contrast the décor needs attention the place has not been decorated for at least 6 years and the painters were painting while we were eating, the setting is gorgeous but they don't make the most of it. We... More

A great restaurant! By far the best we tried in Sri Lanka. Great service, ask for Nimal! He was fantastic, looked after us so well and so friendly. We had lobster - which was a really reasonable price and really beautiful. Well cooked and afterwards we had the best dessert. I had banana fritters and my husband had Ceylon cup,... More

Location is great as are the views. Service and attention was excellent. Menu is simple as is the food. Cater very well for children and happy to change items. Nothing to rave about. We went once and it was fine, didn't return as there are many restaurants to choose from.

The food was quite nice, but not very inspiring. This was the most 'touristy' restaurant of all the ones we visited, with a large menu with dishes from around the world. It seemed to be part of a large complex type thing, with a hotel, a jewellers and other little shops. It as very quiet, but that was the same... More

We went for dinner and had two starters and shared a main (No 55 Sri Lakan curry selection) which was great. We got complementary salad and drink and had shisha after dinner. Great experience, the whole dinner (including shisha and beer) was around 35 USD.
