We've had dinner after starting the third week in Sri Lanka on our roundtrip. We always like to eat at local places (hotels, as the restaurants are named in Sri Lanka). The night before we had dinner at Little Pumpkin which was okay. Luckily we found this place with real Sri Lankan Rice and Curries. A buffet for 800 rupee... More

You sit on tables in the sand on the beach. for 10€ you get a great vegetarian buffet and your personal choice of grilled fresh fish, chicken, garlic, potatoes. drinks extra. sometimes they organize a bonfire. its really like in the movies. for couples a romantic,...

This restaurant is on the eastern side of the beach and I definitely recommend it. There are lots of tables set out on the beach which gives a great atmosphere. The BBQ is cheap - 1500 rupees for a fish one which was good. My only slight disappointment was they only do one sort of fish but it was yummy... More

We didn't stay but when we were walking along the beach we stopped for dinner. They have a large number of candle lit tables along the beach, with a range of dishes on the menu. They also offered a couple of different buffet meal options - just the buffet Rs800, BBQ chicken or fish Rs1,500. We went for the first... More

We loved this place so much that we extended our stay here. It is quite remote out at the end of the Tangalle beach, but it is quiet and secluded as a result. The breakfast buffet is excellent, as is the buffet dinner - which was all included in our booking price. The food was fresh and delicious, especially the... More

We had lunch here and chose a few different Sri Lankan curries to share. None of them were good, despite being on the more expensive side for the area - unfortunately to say, the worst curries we have had in Sri Lanka. Both curries had absolutely no flavour and tasted of water (very strange as Sri Lankan food has been... More

Right from the beginning the staff were very good at keeping in contact via email and answering all my questions. We got a good price per night for our cabana which included half board. The breakfast is amazing and as for the buffet dinner wow! They serve you so much food! You will not go hungry. Sandy Cabanas is set... More

We rent a very nice room at the first stage very close of the sea. No rooftop over the shower, no wall between your bed and the waves, just some curtains... sleeping with the waves was amazing. Breakfast and dinner are delicious and the beach is so nice.
