“our fav restaurant in Unawatuna!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

Service was amazing, we went a few times and were always given a warm welcome, its lovely to sit outside and watch the sunset, the food is amazing, they have the fresh seafood out for you to choose. one day we went for the lobster, we were advised to share it and it was the best iv'e ever had, really meaty. That was a little more expensive naturally but worth every pennyt and still half what you would pay for a substandard one in the UK. I also had the tuna (twice)which was about £2.80 with chips and salad and it was fantastic!

“At the sea”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012 via mobile

Really nice location if you sit outside. Lots of foreigners sit inside close to the TV - what I do not understand. I assume the WIFI does not work outside.
We had prawns which were tasty, but the chicken Massala was really bad.
The waiter who served us was somehow bored and unhappy that we did not want to have the catch of the day ... .
