“Same as all other places”

Fresh Wave Restaurant and Bar
Ranked #9 of 167 Restaurants in Mirissa
Price range: $5 - $12
Description: There are plenty of seafood restaurants in Mirissa, but at Freshwave, we’ve added a little extra to the experience. The restaurant has been designed for happy chaos and lively banter, similar to the hubbub of a seafood market. Frshwave’s day begins in the wee hours of the morning when the freshest catch comes in, ready to be turned into a gastronomic experience.

We went here one evening based on the reviews on TA. But it's the same as as the places on the beach, same menu, roughly the same prices. What we had was two completly different dishes (prawns with garlic and chicken with chili) and the only difference was that it was prawns and chicken, the sauce was identical and didn't taste much more than very spicy.

The service here is a little better than most places in Mirissa beach.

we stayed here for 5 nights. the room itself was clean but the bathroom wasn't great, there was an open vent which welcomed in cockroaches, mozzies and flies. we were on the bottom floor at the back of reception so could clearly hear people talking as well. we had no offer of house keeping, on the 4th day we asked for the room to be cleaned and new towels. they are very over protective of the towels as it was an effort for them to give us any for the beach and quite reluctant. the staff were friendly enough. laundry is pretty expensive there, but did a fine job with it. and upped the price when collecting it, after saying it was less before they had done it.
the location was good, walk through the restaurant and you're on the beach, but if you want a quiet place probably don't stay here as there are parties on the beach most nights and dogs barking. if you are looking for a party location this would be good.

Lack of service throughout the evening, we struggled to order drinks and waited 1 hour for a burger and tuna steak. Nice staff apologised but not worth the money

Really not sure how this place has made it so near to the top of restaurants in Mirissa. They’re cocktails are great but service is poor, verging on rude and food is distinctly average. I had fish curry with rice - the fish was really overcooked and the rice was dry like it had been reheated. The waiter also challenged me on why I hadn’t eaten much rice which I thought was unprofessional. Overall, pretty disappointing and we wished we had gone elsewhere.
