If you want super fresh fish, cooked well you can't do better than the Ocean Moon. Danny steered me towards an amazing giant Red Snapper that was served up perfectly! Not pricey either and eaten by the waterside! During the day, as long as you buy a bite to eat or a few drinks, you can use the sun beds... More

I chose the red mullet from the display table. It was grilled to perfection and was absolutely fresh and delicious. My boyfriends prawns were not as good, perhaps a bit over cooked but he still enjoyed them. The only thing I would say is be aware of the prices quoted on the fresh fish, for example the chap said 1000... More

We visited this place for dinner and the place similar to all other places was full due to peak travel season. We were surprised by the way the serving staff were behaving with guests. The waiter went to the extent of shouting at us when we complianed about the food. Nothing great about the place and should be missed.

The staff were very helpful and agreed to cook the tuna how we wanted it, very lightly cooked, and they succeeded. As a result this was by far the best tuna I have had in Sri Lanka and at a very reasonable price. The jumbo prawns were very slightly overlooked but still very yummy. Beautiful location on the beach.

We tried most of the beach places and this is our favourite. The staff are friendly and happy to help, quicker to serve than most as well. They will guide you through the fresh fish table, I was offered a tiger fish, unbelievably good. Only place we went back to in 12 days here

Without knowing anything it can be hard to choose between the collection of seafood restaurants that line the beach at Mirissa. Our criteria were #1 - fresh fish, #2 - reasonable price, and Ocean Moon was the business that best fit that bill. At night, a wide range of the day's catch is put on show for you to pick... More

The lunch was decent, basic Chinese-style noodles. Dinner was fantastic - fresh barracuda from their nightly display of the catches of the day. Some of the best fish I've ever had, and very filling.

Great location on the beach and very friendly staff. We pretty much used this restaurant as our base for our three days passing through Mirissa. Very good value for a seafood platter to share.

I had a really good (big) lobster for only 3500 Rs. This was by far the cheapest one (5000 and 7000 Rs in comparison). The red snapper and fries were okay. The staff was very friendly.
