Those who claim that One Love has the best curry in town might be right since there aren't many places in Unawatuna who even try but that does not mean the curry is good. They serve a decent and varied plate of mixed currys for the normal tourist price but the stuff is usually overcooked and without character. The only... More

The tasty cocktails were a bit pricier than we were used to on Mirissa but they weren't really expensive and they were a good alcoholic strength. But the best thing on the menu is the rice and curry meal. It was just delicious! It was so tasty, we had to call out the chef and compliment him. A 25yr old... More

since the beach in front of one love is so big now, there are tables outside. I was sitting in the sand close to the sea and enjoyed the starts above me and the nice wind from the sea. And of course I enjoyed 3 vegetarian curries! Delicious there!

For beach curry, sort of tapas style, get the curry and rice and make your selections. It was great, if a little slow to arrive. For cheerful, if not absolutely cheap, sand-top dining with a cold Lion Lager, you could do worse than here.

We waited one hour for a seafood plate. People which came after us have become the meal before us. The waiter did not ask for any drinks during the waiting time and we put two times our hands up but no reaction. The seaplate was dissapointing. The prices are too high for the food and service. Never again!

Gorgeous spot on a big beach! It's so great to see the past erosion issues seem to be over thanks to a breakwater that the government has recently put near the temple. There is now a massive beach in front of One Love and it is once again a gorgeous spot to spend an evening with the sand between your... More

They make nice curries! They are creative if they don't have the ingredients for the meals on the menu. Friendly staff and a sort of open kitchen which I liked. O good tip: If you are a surfer, they have one of those things to screw your fins of your board as one of my friends had to do. The... More

Good location on the beach, so a good view! I had the Deviled Calamari which was very tasty, plenty of Calamari and sauce and moderate spice. My friend had a prawn sandwich, she didn't enjoy it as the bread was stale and there was about 6 prawns altogether. Service was slow- but it is a very relaxed place so we... More
