Strictly average food . We found this place overpriced for the quality of food they serve. I guess they thought we are locals and the service offered was pathetic to say the least. There are so many better places around and this surely can be skipped.

The only good thing about the place is the location. The service is poor and the last thing I expected was not so fresh prawns. I asked for the rice n curry and he said its not available and we ended up ordering grilled prawns and devilled prawns which was strictly ok with not so fresh prawns. Later we saw... More

We have now visited One Love on separate occasions during our travels to Sri Lanka and both times the food and service was excellent. The curries are out of this world and such good value for money. The cocktails are great and beers always cold. It was interesting to visit the second time and sit out on the part of... More

We smelt their curries from the beach and decided to give them a try. We were delighted with the red rice and tasty curries, plus the delicious fresh juices. Definitely better than lots we have tasted after 3 weeks touring Sri Lanka. Service was quick too.

This place had great curries on the beach for a reasonable price. We had six different curries and they were all tasty. Possibly the Dahl was the only disappointment. We didn't have to wait too long but others around seemed to be waiting a while. Definitely worth a visit.

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!
