Amazing drinks!

We've found it difficult to find nice drinks that aren't too sour/warm/badly made... This place is amazing, the best views on the beach !

Chic beach hotel and restaurant. Our favourite, Unawatuna is growing as fast as it can, and Thaproban was one of the first to catch up on comfort and style. Staying here can be a bit noisy, even beach side, but if you want to roll out of bed into the sea. This is great

During our stay in Unawatuna we had dinner at Thaproban Restaurant and they have just opened after renovations, very nicely decorated and the manager was very friendly made sure we had a wonderful meal at their restaurant. Simply due to this reason we ended up having all our meals at Thaproban Restaurant and I highly recommend this place to anyone.

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.

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.

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
