We had lunch here twice. The setting is great and the food and service were very good. It was busy and had plenty of atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

V good food on the bank of the river so a welcome cooling breeze. Devilled chicken is great. You need to walk through the coffee bar to get to the restaurant itself.

Located by the river this above average restaurant continues to offer good food at reasonable prices. Staff are warm and friendly and the manager Jagart is a lovely man who greets regulars personally. A great meeting place for expats and visitors alike

I enjoyed the chilli prawns which were plentiful and tasty and not too fiery. We were given a complimentary post prandial drink, which highlighted the Sri Lankan hospitality prevalent wherever we went

Pier 88 is good option in Bentota with reasonable prices. Food was good, no complaints and the service was very attentive. It also is set in a great location overlooking the river.
