“Bad and not servicemind staff and poor good - Dreamhouse Unawatuna!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2012

Bad service and impolite staff! In Lonley planet they recommend this restaurant but from out opinion we absolutly dont agree with that! Staff were not servicemind and rather lazzy! Food to little and had to pay rather more then in other places! We are now in Sri Lanka and love this country!!! We stay om several places and all of them was VERY good. Specially in Villa Rosa - Kandy! The best ever! You feel very special when you stay there!!!!! Very good restaurant you can find in Unawatuna is " Happy banana"! Very good fishfood and very kind and servicemind staff,lay directly on the beach! We hardly recommended to go to Sri Lanka!Steffi and Claes

The atmosphere is very special at this restaurant, the staff are very welcoming and discreet. The food was fantastic particularly after 2 weeks of eating curry!

“Really good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

We had dinner and it was really nice food, we had Melanzane and bruschetta and both were very good, I would recommend the pasta as the main course as the lasagne was a bit over cooked, overall I would go back there again, good change from the Srilanka food. Service was good as well, very attentive and we didn't wait long for the food.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

We decided to eat here for a change following 5days of rice and curry elsewhere on the island?

The restaurant was recommended by lonely planet in 2009 but I think this is now unreliable as it is so out of date.

Our food was nothing special. I ordered lasagne which was very dry and only contained a tablespoon of ragu sauce so it was effectively sheets of pasta held together by bechemel sauce. Not very appetising!

My wife ordered spaghetti bolegnese and this was slightly better but poorer than we would make at home.

No side salad or accompaniments were served.

The staff were friendly and then atmosphere pleasant. They definitely need to concentrate on the food though...
