We has a lovely meal of rice and curry at hot rock in December 2014. The service was attentive but not pushy and prices were very reasonably.

Hot Rock has a prime spot on the beach either for daytime lounging in the sun chairs or a dinner on the beach at night but besides that the restaurant is really average. We had a dinner there one night and you defiantly pay a premium price as comparable dishes can be found in town for less and the dinner... More

My wife and I enjoyed a lovely dinner here. Next morning packing to move on from Unawatuna we couldn't find our purse containing cash and cards. We retraced our steps and were delighted to be given back the purse intact by the manageress here. Really maintains your faith in human nature and we can only thank her for reinforcing what... More

We've been to hot rock a few times. The service is always very friendly and the food quite good. The kids were happy with their cheese sandwiches and ice cream and my soup was very good. Overall a good experience for a cheap and casual dinner on the beach, Sri Lankan style.

Ate here at lunch time as it was busy compared to others on the beach. Had curry and rice, it was ok but a little bland. Service was friendly and it wasn't expensive. There must be better close by.

This restaurant is at the far end of Unawatuna beach and is well worth the walk or a short Tuk, Tuk, ride for the great food on offer that, and the scenic beach view makes this a must dine experience both by day & by night. We often dined here and we just had to have the Sri Lankan curries... More

Loved this place, great place to sit down and relax, watch the world go by, not that things move that fast in Unawatuna. Great place to have a beer, snack or full dinner. Food is simple but with great taste, could nt get enough of there Sri Lankian veg curry. The owner Rani and her staff are very friendly and... More
