Went there for solo-dinner, turn out to be wonderful experience. I had the grilled seer-fish, it was fresh and tasty, with generous portion of salad and potato-chips. My bottle of Chardonnay (Kangaroo Ridge/2012) was lovely and cost only Rs2800/bottle; this is cheaper than prices in Galle. Agree with another reviewer Festen, nothing fancy (decor) here, but when you have beach,... More

This place is hidden in the back of a rather noisy Cocktail bar. Nothing fancy, but an outdoor restaurant with nice breeze as facing the beach. We had the seafood platter and at 2500 rupees for lovely lobster, crab and tiger prawns, that's a pretty decent deal. All tasted fresh and lovely. We'll worth a trip if you like seafood... More

Visited several times during the day for a cold drink but decided it was time for an evening meal. A very extensive menu, attentive service and good food served relatively quickly. Sat outside overlooking the beach. It was dark but many, many people still enjoying the evening breeze after a relaxing Sunday on the beach. Will go again!

We shared a couple of wonderful seafood platters and a side order of hot butter cuttlefish, the food was amazing and the service was good and we even had a seaview. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

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 @ Β£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.
