The view across the lake was beautiful and peaceful. The staff were all incredibly friendly and welcoming, and served the food promptly. The food was nice but not spectacular.

This restaurant has the most beautiful setting and access to great watersports...all the food looked lovely; but we'd just had an Apsara breakfast!

Visited here after reading dozens of great reviews and was not disappointed. The food is amazing and flavoursome, and is very reasonably priced considering the high standard. A good range of beers on the menu also, with Lion on draught less than 200 rupees! If you stay in the Bentota area this is a must.

The choice and quality of the food is excellent and the ambience is wonderful, as it is situated on the banks of the Bentota river. There is also a wide selection of wine, which is very competitively priced in... More

There is a varied menu at great prices for good food. There is a relaxed friendly atmosphere which is enjoyed by visiting Europeans and the resident ex-pats. If you are in the local area... More
