“Tasty fresh cooked food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 13, 2013

Gorgeous fresh seafood. Food takes a while to be served because its all cooked from scratch to order. We order jumbo prawns which were bbq'd and very meaty and the whole fish was cooked to perfection. Would also recommend the vegetable curry.

“Top food”

Excellent food, we went 2 times the food was very good and they have beer! Price wise it is too expensive compared to other places but still it's a 5!

“Fresh seafood, delicious dinner!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

The entrance to Cabana does not look very fancy but the food there is one of the best we had in Sri Lanka. We had jumbo prawn which was very fresh, devilled chicken and delicious curry chicken. Must try in Tissa! I'm going back tonight for dinner again!

“Excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

The place looks shabby from the outside but the food is excellent. We found the restaurant from Tripadvisor and it lived up to its rating. It is located directly opposite the Refresh restaurant which everyone seems to know.
We ordered a fish curry and devilled calamari. The calamari was not overcooked or smothered in red sauce as in other places. In fact, both dishes were among the best we had in Sri Lanka. The food took nearly an hour as I guess it was prepared from scratch. It is also reasonably priced by Sri Lankan restaurant standards.
