Ate dinner here twice, enjoyed it both times. A little on the pricey side but they will cook your seafood any way you want and the chef has good flavours. Food does take a while to come but they do give you complimentary starters of salad and bread with garlic butter.

Food and service are grea at Amal restaurant. You have a lot of choice, including amazing seafood. I personally tried the devilled calamaris and the noodles with egg and seafood and loved both. Service is fast and everyone is really lovely. Highly recommended!

A great restaurant with nice atmosphere, some evenings you can experience jungle drums in live!
We had dinner there every evening and the food was fresh and very tasteful,
especially the seafood.
I can really recomend Amal Restaurant.

We ate at Amal's having read the reviews and due to its proximity to where we were staying. The staff were very attentive and on arrival show you the fish and live crab, prawn and lobster available for dinner. The restaurant is upstairs overlooking palm trees to the beach and is a very romantic setting. Ceiling fans help keep the place cool and burners located at strategic point keep the mosquitoes at bay. The waiters are quick, (in Sri Lankan terms) to attend to your needs and the choice from the menu is extensive. I chose the Red Snapper which was perfect and the second best fish I have ever eaten, trailing behind a Barracuda I tried in Unnawatuna! All the meals were well prepared, presented beautifully and tasted Devine. Cocktails and alcohol was well priced very cold. Give it a try - you'll love it.

Wandering up the fab beach stumbled across Amal Restaurant after taking a drink at their beach side facilities. Used the great sunbeds for the afternoon and so decided to eat their later, i was not dissappointed. A great selection of fresh fish on display with a fantastic array of shellfish. I decided on the jumbo prawns.... Yummy and massive!! A nice white wine washed them down although i could have had a cocktail or many. Amal and his team where extremely friendly, helpful and accomodating for anything i requested. The cleanliness was high which is always a plus. Ate there on a couple of other nights and enjoyed all the various food, sri lankan devilled dishes and lovely fresh seer fish. One night somebody had a party organised on the beach by the restaurant with fireworks etc. looked like fun. Will visit again someday as loved the atmosphere there.
