"Only on prior reservations" At Turtle Bay restaurant, life moves at your pace. The restaurant has no fixed meal times and anywhere in the restaurant or on the beach is ever ready for alfresco dining. The resident chef prepares global favourites and a refreshingly creative range of fusion dishes and authentic local dishes. The bar serves up classics and exotic cocktails along with a great selection of soothing coolers.

Excellent fresh local seafood combined with old classics. Very flexible breakfast choice and good lunchtime snacks. Ask the staff during the day of the seafood availability for that evening and get the pick of the catch. The staff are happy to tweak and cater for your individual taste. Best food to date in Sri Lanka

The quality of the food is excellent. The presentation could not be more delicate, almost following design cuisine lines but with big portions. But the most outstanding is the catering service, can compete with the best standards europeos. Speciality in fresh fish and seafood and local cuisine. Exclusive wine list. All this coupled with an incomparable setting, superb beachfront in... More
