The service was quick and friendly and the ambience is also nice. I ordered calamari which came with some salad and fries. It was a bit oily so I couldn't finish it all. I found the menu to be limited.

this was the worst meal of our holiday. Awful lamb chop, Spanish omelette was more like a Frisbee, 2 mediocre chicken curries. Then we were practically thrown out so they could close. Never again

In front of the sea. Very good sea food. The service is correct. The price is also correct. This is a good choice in Unawatuna.

We dined here for our last night and what a treat we had. Fresh tuna steak and jumbo prawns were superb. We really enjoyed the setting and the food.

We stayed in a penthouse suite with a balcony facing the ocean. The room was spacious & bed comfortable with a well-sized balcony to sit and enjoy the view plus an evening sunset drink. We had trouble with WiFi connection and a router was brought to our room so it then worked perfectly - yes first world problem but the... More

Nice to eat dinner on the sand. Laid back space. We had Sri Lankan curry & rice. The chicken curry was tough and quite flavourless, but the sides were quite good, particularly the pumpkin curry and the eggplant & capsicum curry. Kids enjoyed a pizza.

Simply Amazing! We have eaten here many times. If you like authentic Sri Lanka and Asian cuisine, be sure to try this. I have tried many restaurants in Asia, and in Sri Lanka, and this place is the top. Wonderfully spiced foods, kind waiters, and normal prices. I suggest you to try chicken masala, and rice and curry!!!

Looking for a nice place to eat in Unawatuna, I can recommend Thaproban Beach Restaurant. We got some very nice fresh Tiger fish and some Sole fish served with crispy french fried potatoes, fresh salad and melted butter.
