This is the best restaurant we have visited so far in our 9 days here. Upon entering we were invited to select our whole fish from a display on ice or live lobster or crabs from tanks. We opted for a table in the outdoor space among a grove of tall palms. The low light and sound of the ocean... More

Quite an overpriced place, but it has a nice ambiance in the garden to eat, although lots of people prefer to it upstairs for some reason where the blue light in the evening isn't that appetizing. Kind prawns were very good though

Our chauffeur/guide (Jayalal) suggested us this place at Bentota for Lunch. We went by his suggestion and came out lip smacking.. Best is to have seafood. They show the local Crabs/Lobsters in a tank and Fish/Prawns on ice.. you can choose what you need and ask them to make is in Local Lankan Curry style. We ordered Prawns in Local... More

After reading the reviews, we tried the restaurant. Read our point below : - Food is very OK, nothing out of this world. - It's quite expensive as per restaurants around. - Staff is friendly. - It's a very quiet place, music just blends into the silence. Work hard on your menu and I'm sure you guys can do better... More

You get to select your own seafood to be cooked. We took a crab to be grilled with cheese and fish to be grilled with garlic and butter as recommended by the owner. Although the seafood was fresh, the cooking was quite average. Nothing special. No ooh and aah. Quite pricey too as we paid almost similar amount to what... More
