Sea fish restaurant in it`s earlier life was a dingy drinking joint. It has done a superb comeback under a new management team as a great sea food restaurant. We had the option of going for the buffet or the a la carte menu. The waiter although looked very young was very attentive & suggested nice parings. The spicy cuttlefish... More

We come here to celebrate our son's school achievements. It really words to encourage him as he's a sea food fanatic! They give very good sea food, sometimes seasonal, bit pricey, but always good. Nice quiet atmosphere. We always spot a celebrity when there like Rangana Herath :) The servers are super nice and very helpful. They remember us and... More

When I realized that I had left it at sea fish and returned to check with the staff they recognized me and immediately said that 'sir you had left your credit... More

The best thing about this restaurant we did not use: it's business lunch for 250.- - 400.- Rupees coming with rice, egg, fish, meat or vegetarian curry. Instead we had meat and fish and a lobster, which was nice but too much. Service takes its time as the menu indicates. Stay patient and enjoy. The goat dish was not really... More

We had dinner there and it was excellent. Shrimps super fresh and tasty, fish was also amazing. The only thing is that it isn't really budget dinning but from time to time it is ok to spend a bit more, right? ;-) As for food and service this is excellent place!

We went to the restaurant because of the reviews, but didn't think the food came up to what we were expecting. Both of us chose the mixed seafood, it arrived on hot griddles which is the worst way to present fish as it ends up being overcooked. As a result we were disappointed in our meal. The staff were very... More

This was our third visit and the seafood just gets better every time. The best dish was the Negombo prawn curry with coconut sambol and Sri Lankan bread ( Roast Pan). Whilst the hot butter cuttlefish was the star entree for our family. There's a wide variety on menu and even the non lovers of seafood will not be disappointed... More
