“Great chippy on the beach!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2014

We came here for a break from rice and curry and were very pleased! Really good food (far tastier than a lot of chippies at home) and super quick service. Had a nice chat with the Geordie owner :)

“Great food on the beach”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2014

Excellent food and service from the English owner. Small but comfortable with amazing chips! Beer served in cans which I think could be improved but not a major deal.

“Friends and family atmospheres”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Misplaced Texas found his way to Kokos on the Beach. His Tex-Mex burger was a taste of home. The atmosphere cannot be beaten. If you are looking for some "home cooking" come on down. It has a wide arrange of British or American food. The owner Gary and his family are a hoot to hang out with. It is like going to a family BBQ at home.

hi thanks for your kind review.
all our food is cooked fresh daily( just like mum used ti make) to ensure that our guests get only the best food.
our tex mex burger is now becoming one of our greatest sellers. the tex mex or chili con carne is now available served along side our chips, jacket potatoes, nachos, soft tacos.
we try to keep the restaurant as informal as possible to ensure guests are relaxed as possible, we hope to see you here again soon.

thanks and blessings

“Burger and chips!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2014

What a find - not sure what to expect on arrival since there is not much to see but judging from reviews here, we knew it would be good. And it was! Great burger and chips, and a lovely friendly owner as well. Highly recommended!

hi thanks for your review.
we are pleased that you enjoyed your visit to kokos on the beach.
due to the seasonal changes and tides are restaurant has reduced in size and is now (cozy) with seating for around 20 people, however it does make it easier to make new friends and share life experiences. ;)
we are committed to 100% guest satisfaction and food quality and we are pleased to see that we have succeeded once again.

thanks and blessings

“great food, lovely owner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

Fantastic burgers, great wraps. Owner comes from England and is a lovely chap! The restaurant is difficult to find. Coming from the main road in Unawatuna it is just before the seawall with all the paintings.
