Bustling place with a great local atmosphere.. the menu is really extensive and you could have anything personalised if you wished. The portions are huge so beware, don’t over order! For the price the food quality is amazing. The staff are friendly even though they...are super busy they are very efficient. We visited 3 times on our trip to the local town. Highly recommend.More

Visited again last night. Had an amazing meal, The sea food platter followed by those yummy pineapple fritters. A definite favourite of mine. The staff were all on point last night, such excellant service and attention. We enjoyed a bottle of wine with our meal...and I finished with a Bailys Coffee, as you do! A fab night team thank you to all.More

Great selection of food and lovely views of the river! Niraath was our server and very nice. I'm vegan and they had good options and a happy hour on cocktails.

Dined here a few times and always had great food. Generous portions at a good price. Drinks good and also competitively priced. Service is slow but enjoy the atmosphere whilst waiting! Go early (5pm) if you want a river side table or pre book.

This is my fourth visit and I'm dissatisfied with the service here. They seem to only want to serve foreigners and don't care about the Sri Lankans. The food doesn't taste good either. Moreover, it's not safe to dine here due to frequent fights among...drunken individuals. wouldn't recommend visiting this place.More

Very nice restaurant overlooking the river. Couldn't actually see any other restaurants in the town tbh, so not a lot of choice anyway. Nice food, but the service is rubbish. We had to get our own menus from the bar in the end, and accost...waiters to get drinks. And then remind them when only one drink arrives. They don't seem to write anything down and they're all terrible at remembering. Still, the food is amazing when it turns up, I had grilled prawns, got about 14, for only about £10, bargainMore

Found this restaurant on trip advisor and were very pleased. There is a large menu which should suit almost everyone. The portions were large and I thought fair in the price. Service was quick and could pay on card.

Hi,We are UK Hotel owners and have been in Bentota Sri Lanka for the last three weeks. This restaurant is very popular and just a short walk from our hotel,so we ate here often. Many holiday makers enjoy the cool breeze off the river and...their curries are excellent and the beer the best price so far? They are also very good at producing Pizza as well as their curries. Mohan their manager is very efficient and controls his team of waiters with pride and dedication and is a credit to the restaurant, We had just one complaint and that was a chicken dish which was dry and over cooked,but Mohan was quick to resolve this issue to our complete satisfaction, We therefore will continue to eat here and can unreservedly recommend this restaurant to the discerning tourists.More

After waiting for 25 mins we were given a table which could hardly fit my 4 years old daughter. Others were given better tables though we were waiting before them and these three tables were empty when we were given the shortchanged table. Anyways my...fish n chips was raw n undercooked.
