Despite the proximity to the source (the ocean) seafood is not inexpensive in this area. While the hotels do charge quite a bit more, we found the prawns and lobster options to be a tad less expensive. But, so what, it's vacation and time to splurge! I was thoroughly rewarded with the most divine plate of grilled prawns - a... More

We stayed at Riverbank BnB, just up the road and ate at Pier 88 every evening for 5 days because we enjoyed our first meal so much! Lovely food, in a beautiful setting on the banks of the river. Service was excellent, apart from one evening when the restaurant was extremely busy.

We found Pier 88 (Nebula) by accident while visiting the weekly market in Aluthgama . Looking down the river it looked like a nice place to be. So we found the entrance (not so easy the first time !) and settled down in the garden with a beer and some lunch . We revisited Pier 88 on several occasions both... More

We're introduced by our villa staff, just few minutes walk from our place, and it was nicer than we expected, so we spent dinner time for 2 nights there. My husband loved their fish curry, and draft beers! Seafood was nice, and staff are very nice. They also have supermarket and rooms on it the entrance of the restaurant.

We visited this restaurant twice for dinner during our stay in Bentota. The food was very tasty, decent sized portions and very attentive staff. The location on the banks of the Bentota river could not be better. Add in the well made cocktails, a very reasonable bill, what more could you wish for, we most definitely will return to this...

Went to this restaurant, initially finding it by chance . But have to say it was brilliant. My friends were getting married locally and the night before the wedding the restaurant laid on a two piece band, a bouquet of flowers and went the extra mile, we didn't have to ask all we did was book a table and there...

On the banks of the Bentota river situated nice garden restaurant offers a wide range of seafood, western and Sri Lankan dishes. I also appreciate very much the choice of foreign beers, especially the Erdinger Weizen! The restaurant is often visited by tourists and in the high season it is recommended to make a reservation. The service is friendly and... More
