“Delicious Convenience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012

The food and kitchen staff were equally lovely, even on those early morning starts to get uncrowded waves you would be fueled with something hearty. On top of all the delights on the menu , you can catch a fish off the beach or at the market and have them grill it over the hot coals to perfection. Kuma you the man.....Head chef.......Gareth.

“Yummy Tandoori”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

We stayed at Samantha's for a month and I think tried everything on the menu. The Sri Lankan breakfast is very good. I loved their tuna fish sandwiches. Make sure to try the homemade pesto pasta and have them put prawns in it. Amazing!

“Great gin and hibiscus juice cocktail”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2012

Liked the hamburger, the chicken tandoori was just OK, a little overcooked. She makes a mean gin and hibiscus juice!
