Popular restaurant even in the low season.

Superb beach location with comfortable seating arrangements and great music (if you like samba and jazz infused latin-style). Our choice of fish was well-advised, and the quantities were ample but not excessive. Not sure I would rate it as highly as some of your reviewers, but on the strength of... read more

It is a lovely restaurant, with a great location, tables are available on the beach. The service is very good and staff are helpful and polite. We enjoyed the food, and they helped me to change few things with my order so that I can get a good quality vegan food. Would definitely recommend for a visit when in Unawatuna.

We stumbled upon the well situated Thaproban restaurant while taking an evening beach walk. They have relaxed music a great atmosphere, and the outer tables are the closest to the water on the beach. The prices are fair, service is fantastic and the food is good to boot. Check out the fresh seafood before the menu. Our first night here,... More

Food on the beach well it was amazing as in the food and view. I would say that the pineapple fritter was good but the batter had not been cooked enough for the pineapple fritters so she removed the crust and ate the pineapple. The calamari was great with amazing sauce. Both prawn main dishes was amazing.

Having dinner with the sound of the ocean is unforgettable. Great seafood, salads and the staff are polite! Tables are just by the ocean. All is perfect!

A good restaurant on the beach. The ambience is very nice especially at night as you have dinner with the sound of the water as the background.
