The location is great, the atmosphere is great, the welcome and service were brilliant and the food was fantastic. We both had Tom Yum soup which was exceptionally spicy but oh... More

Both partner and myself opted for Sri Lankan curry - one chicken and one prawn - the portion size was substantial - enough to fill up my 6 ft 7 hungry man! The food was plentiful and very tasty. The setting was peaceful away from hustle and bustle from the main road and over looked the river. We came away... More

The restaurant is by the river with a view of the Bentota railway bridge. Great view and a nice place to enjoy a beer. Service was attentive. Portions large. The taste was average though.

During our stay in Bentota, we had visited this place twice. Price is reasonable, non veg food, specially deviled prawns and Tuna fish were awesome. Very rice and gravy was so so. View from the restaurant is amazing, as it is by the river. Recommended from my side.

hidden away between the market and a good local shop that doesn't raise the prices whenever a tourist walks in. You can get a good western style fresh coffee here and sit out next to the river. A good menu is available if you wish to eat too.
