I love Unawatuna, great location, good bars and many restaurants. However there is a distinct lack of upmarket restaurants. CocoBay La Mer solves that. This romantic restaurant, with amble tables both inside and outside is the perfect location for a romantic last night meal. The...food is excellent and the service lives up to it's setting and the quality of the food. An extensive wine list sits alongside an impressive coctail selection. Overall very highly recommended. You wont be disapointed!More

Myself and my fiance went to la mer last night having already arranged for the private beach dinner with heart and lights. I have put ad my title "best meal of our lives" but honestly could of put one of best experiences of our lives....From the very first second the staff were exceptional, they genuinely couldn't do enough for us and were always smiling. I had the grilled seafood platter which was absolutely delicious and my fiance had the sri lankan curry which came with 4 dishes of sauces and 10 currys dishes and all tasted Devine. The setting is out of this world and as we arrived walking through the foyet we could see a huge great red heart with lights beaminging into the sky. We topped the night off releasing a Chinese lantern into the sky whilst one member of staff filmed it all on my phone, he kept running round in circles whilst having camera constantly on us until right at the end when he films the lantern in the sky which has resulted in a fantastic video. We have done similar things in Barbados and Thailand but this really was another level. Special shout out to Lamer but honestly all staff were amazing and I just dont m ow their names. A real magical evening never to be forgotten.More

We chose La Mer as outside guests because of the great reviews, and we can tell you they are all true. Firstly, our host Dileepa was an absolute charm and made us very comfortable. We've had experiences eating in hotel restaurants as outside guests before...that were less than pleasant, but here there is no such discrimination. They gave us a great spot right on the beach, which brings us to our second point: the view. The sun had just set, and the brilliant red skies, the burning torches on the beach and the sight of Galle in the distance made for such a dramatic spectacle. Thirdly then, and most importantly, the food. We had a mixed seafood platter for two, and we have had several of these all over Sri Lanka, and we can safely say it was the best we've had. Fresh, great variety, supremely cooked and great complementary sauces. The only minor little detail was that the drinks were a little expensive, and the glass of wine was fairly small for that price. Other than that, absolutely loved it. Great experience. Special thanks to Dileepa.More

Seafood Out of this World ! It is our first visit of this wonderful country and upon arrival, of course we wanted to eat the seafood dinner. Traveled extensively, and having my degree in the restaurant and hospitality industry, I was pleasantly surprised by presentation,...food quality and impeccable service 👍👏🏻💕We ordered seafood indulgence dish for two, bottle of white wine, 2 lime sodas and water. The total bill was around 13000 LKR (1$=180 rupees) tips around 10-20 % as I always glad to thank anyone for their wonderful service and the waiter was courteous, professional and had a sparkling happy smile. I can definitely recommend this pleasant restaurant to be included in your schedule if you are in the area. Their setting on the beach is romantic and at night they light up the beach torches. Just a perfect combination of great food, pleasant professional service and seaside setting ! We can definitely say that it was one of guest meals we had in our lives .More

The staff is really wonderful, the manager of the restaurant can make a mean bloody Mary; Ask for his special marinara recipe for it! We also thoroughly enjoyed our massive jug of passion fruit mojito! The room was great with a huge bathroom that had...a jacuzzi tub. I wish we had more time to stay!More
