Great beachside bar, so peaceful. Great for pre & post dive drinks. Really friendly fun staff, guaranteed a giggle. I was told it was the best party in Unawatuna and it most certainly is! Make sure you check out Saturday night party night and dance until sunrise.

Riddim Restaurant & Bar at the most beautiful beach of Sri Lanka. Come in and chill out while you enjoy great music, delicious drinks and the best view ever.

Is all you need to know. Good drinks. Friendly staff and amazing sunsets. All the guys working here obviously enjoy their jobs and it rubs off onto all the patrons.

Went there for a Chirstmas Eve Party.. which was an acceptable one. This place could be much better with a better targeted / planned events... Over crowded with Beach Boys, not much of a pleasant experience.. and the prices are too high relative to the party... but enjoyed.. location is 10/10.

We went to Unawatuna coz we hear of this beach-party. However, it was a quite disappointing experience. It was a very small party (unlike the Hikka beach festival), but the entrance was as much as for the Hikka fest. Quite unfriendly people and we did not enjoy our evening.

Saturday night is party night. So as lomg as yo don't mind being charged Rs200 for a beer that should cost Rs100 then go for it. Check their price list when it comes to spirits as some of the staff 'round up' considerably. The music isn't bad and it lasts til the early hours so if this is your thing... More
