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 took ages to come out and was very basic I have eaten better in street cafés !!! The waiter had some fettish of laying down beer mats for every drink which was very annoying Cheap... More

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.

Tuk tuk driver recommended this when we actually wanted to go to a different restaurant - it's a bit of a thing the drivers have going on with some of the restaurants. Anyway, agreed to go, looked at the fish that was neither fresh nor inviting. Left without eating anything.

We stayed in bentota but this nice restaurant helped us when we got fed up with eating the same old hotel Buffett food. The restaurant manager was brilliant with his suggestions and the food quality was very good and just hit you in the right places

10 nights in Bentota. We came here on our last night after being recommended by our tuk tuk driver. We asked him, as was our norm, to return in 2 hours. Well to be quite honest this was the worst food we had had in Sri Lanka and we ended up leaving after consuming probably a quarter of the food.... More
