The food was really really good as well were the drinks. A wide range of western and Sri Lankan food is here too be found. Not too expensive. Really nice staff as well. Location is also perfect next to the beach.

After a dissapointing lunch at another beach restaurant in Uppuveli, we had dinner here. Did not regret it! The view was amazing, as we were seated on the beach, and the food was equally good. Staff was friendly and our food arrived quickly.

We are here four times in three days, the food was great and staff were super friendly. Our favourite was the cheese and baked bean toasties and cheese and onion toasties. Big portions and the bread was great!!
