The dinner in Oceania restaurant was really an amazing experience. The restaurant is newly opened with just a few tables for now. All the people working there are really nice and helpful with your choice. Mahi mahi fish and baracudas are amazing, very well prepared...and really fresh. The checken was also amazing. For us, it is a best restaurant in Tangalle. It was affected by Covid-19 crisis and we hope it will gain its popularity again. Waiting times are maybe little bit longer, but it definitely worths. If you are in Tangalle- visit this place.More

We came to this restaurant last night for dinner after reading the great reviews, not realising that it was its first night reopening since the pandemic! The food was absolutely delicious and we’d thoroughly recommend it - support this business that was impacted so severely...by Covid!!More

Me and my partner had the mixed sea food platter and it was AMAZING. Tuna, prawns, calamari mahi mahi tasted so fresh it must’ve been caught that day. Service was also exceptional. Dinesh served us, he was friendly and informative. And he made sure I...was able to have extra jumbo prawns alongside my dish as an add on. The garlic sauce complimented everything really well. The setting was beautiful, right by the beach, and nice and peaceful. Me and my girlfriend had, lovely food, by a beautiful setting with exceptional service. Would strongly recommend. ✌🏽More
