Right on the beach at Unawatuna, we ate here, more than once. Well prepared fresh fish and surprisingly good pizza if you are all curried out.

There very nice view over the bay, friendly stuff and very good kitchen compare to other we have in Sri lanka. The curry and rice was the best we have so far and vegetable noodles were also above average.

This place is quite classy one, wooden chairs and tables, fast and polite staff and very good menu. You can sit here and admire the view while having a quite descent food. We ate twice here and both times food was good and it was prepared fast.

Fantastic food served right by the sea. The crab is amazing - about 1900 rupees for two cooked and marinated crabs, with salad. Brilliant service too.

The food in this place is excellent, even do freshly caught fish on the Bbq. Right on the sea front, good for a romantic dinner or a quick lunch. Good prices and menu

My husband and I ate here twice whilst in Unawatuna. The food is excellent especially the seafood. The service has a lot to be desired however the view of the beach takes your mind of that. You can watch the turtles in the water whilst eating food. It's away from the main busy part of town but literally a 5... More

What a great location!! And that's about it. We ordered 2 courses for 4 people and after our first course arrived we paid for just our drinks and left. They really served us the worst food that I have ever seen. It wasn't even edible. Staff were ok, but they still charge us for our drinks! I would avoid this... More

Was okay but really nothing more than that. The view out to the sea is really the only thing that would make this place worth the while. The menu had at least 5 different cuisines on it and that also reflected in the food, both dishes we had were average as it seemed they did not really focus on getting... More
