Consistently good!

The Bar/ restaurant is located on the shores of the Bentota river with lovely views of the river. The staff are friendly, welcoming and always smiling. 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

As a riverside bar this is a great location. As a restaurant it is awful. If you are happy with "Bisto" type inedible congealed sauces and cheap frozen chips and a chef who doesn't understand that tuna can be and should be cooked rare (two attempts- didn't bother to ask for a third go) then this place might be for...

Visited as recommended by beach masseur "Daniel" at Beruwala beach. Had four different meals: Black pork curry (deliciously hot), Chicken red wine (large), Spaghetti Bolognese (actually had meat and not just tom. sauce) and pepper steak (exactly med/well done as requested). Not the best first impression as in the poorer, less salubrious part of Aluthgama and we thought we were... More

The food is bad and overpriced. The location is nice above the river little bit away from the resorts. The staff is slow but I think this is a common problem everywhere in SriLanka

Bad place to eat as the food is really far from good, but it is a really nice place to go for a relaxing drink with a river view. So, drink and dont eat here:)

If you like a steak this is one of the few local restaurants were you can be assured the steak will eat well. The menu is comprehensive and very reasonably priced. Quite a good idea to book a table and if you like 'proper chips' ask for 'fat chips'.

Nice restaurant down by the river. The food as in most other places. Unfortunately, all restaurants have almost the same menu, cooked in different ways. We came for the shrimp, they were out of stock. We ate wild boar, no direct highlights. Friendly staff, who are always here in Sri Lanka. Something disturbing were the three troubadours, they should be... More

Located on the Bentota river in Aluthgama. Small entrance from the road by the market, opens in to a lovely riverside restaurant. Lovely views & nice atmosphere. Traditional Sri Lankan menu with many seafood/fish dishes at great prices. Staff couldn't be more helpful. We shared the seafood platter which was plenty for 2 people and was delicious. The drinks are... More
