Visited this restaurant for a seafood meal by the beach the night before flying home. Splurged on a delicious seafood platter each - expensive compared to previous meals but still only @ £12 each and worth it as it contained whole lobster, crabs, calamari, tiger prawns, seer fish (chips and salad). Service very quick and friendly. Also tried one of... More

Serendib has western style food. Even the Sri Lankan food has a western twist. It is tasty but not special. The portions are big. The service is fast.

Despite it's high price (2500 Rup.) the restaurant's seafood platter was fantastic. The only minus thing about the restaurant was it's pub like atmosphere with high music which did not fit with its excellent food. Otherwise highly recommended.

Amazing food and service, it’s not the typical restaurant. The Menu is quirky with some mouthwatering food. It’s a beach restaurant with lot of sea food dishes in the menu. My like is the sea food platter. The Bar is good with cocktails and DJ music at all evening. For who love to enjoy the beach with a fun and... More

The food here was good and average value for money. The service wasn't as good as in some other restaurants we visited, and we felt as if 'regulars' were given a different level of service compared to us.
