“From the beach walking distance from the Taj”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

By tut tut along the main road then drive through the undergrowth and it is quite a lovely place even the railway lines running along the top of the beach, to me adds to the charm this place and the food is good seafood excellent, and all reasonable priced.

Went to the restaurant twice. Once for my birthday. Service was great and food really nice. Had the seafood platter. The crabs were excellent.

“Good seafood, lovely beachfront location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2013 via mobile

We walked along the beach and found this place. They offered us lunch on the beach front in a little hut, which was really pretty. Expensive, but nice, king prawns were tasty, and the salads nice. Waitor wanted to only give us USD change and was not happy when we asked for ruppees - up until then service was ok.

“Good Prawns!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

We visited this restaurant on our 1st night in Sri Lanka and were impressed by the setting, staff and seafood. The grilled king prawns and sides i.e rotti, garlic butter and salad were very tasty and fresh. The price was a little on the high side in comparison to other places but great.

Ate here last night and the service is excellent but food average. Prawn cocktail lovely, tuna steak a little overdone and have had better in Sri Lanka
