Incredible fresh fish, calamari, rice and curry. Very generous portions, all freshly made by Chef Akila and family. After trying once, we ate there every day we were in Weligama.

Ordered fresh fried fish with rice and salad. I think this was the best fish I ever ate. Perfectly crispy outside and nicely moistened inside. Would definitely come back again.

The view alone is a reason to visit, the delish food of course adds to the experience. Definitely recommend.
