Great place. Authentic food, all fresh seafood. We had fish and prawns one night and a massive meal of lobster the next night. Cold beer, super friendly owner. Stop past, you won’t regret it.

Very local family run seafood place, great food - prawns and calamari recommended - and cozy laid back atmosphere. 200m down the road from Ranna212 hotel. Preparation takes time as everything is freshly made/chopped/cooked, but it’s well worth waiting for!

Best fish I ate in Sri-Lanka! Fresh and tasty! Good for seafood and cheap beer (even though it's not in the menu) Good for a relaxing lunch.
