Bentota being a very touristic area, dining options can always be a tad more expensive than other towns. PROS - A lovely view - Fresh sea/lagoon food - We were given complimentary coleslaw salads - The Garlic butter sauce was drippy but tasted better than whole main course with the grilled prawns - Handing the guests (during their departure) a...

It's a nice location to have food. Taste is nice. Only problem we faced is limited options for vegetarian dishes. But what we had was good taste.

Very nice location with greatl views to the river. For vegetarians limited choice as a lot of seafood is on the menu, but pasta was good but overpriced with 950 LKR. Very attentive and all trained staff.

The view of the place was very nice. We reached there by 9 30 and we were the only customers, apparently only few restaurants serve post 9 30 in bentota which is surprising. The service was little slow. They took their time to serve us. Food was reasonable but little over priced. The view was amazing though

Very warm welcome on arrival. Beautiful view across the lagoon/lake and excellent service. Starters were good but the curry was very bland and almost tasteless. Nice touch to give a glass of arak after the meal.

Our regular tuk tuk driver took us here for lunch after a trip to brief gardens and a quick stop at the fish harbour. The menu selection was varied and the prices reasonable. The complimentary salad was enjoyed by all (including our 5 year old... Amazingly!) The main courses were very nice, especially the calamari :) The view over the... More

Had seer fish - it was lovely. Service a bit hit and miss, but altogether a nice meal. Staff have to go downstairs to get food and it seems a bit dated... but good food ....
