Nice place, but too crowded. Two sitting options - upstairs with all the crowd, our downtstairs with no view. They have live music in the evening. Food is good - reach fish meniu, and their rice was the best we tried in Sri Lanka. One of the best restaurants in Bentota.

Very good fish and seafood, a very nice decorated place, with a pleasant colonial atmosphere. A bit pricey, but the food was delicious and the service very good.

Recommended by Charlie our Tuk Tuk driver from Saman Villas (Charlie's a Tours - brilliant - use Charlie with full confidence) this fish restaurant was the best we went to by a long way. Very welcoming, lots of customers including better off locals, very fresh fish well prepared and nicely presented by attentive but not intrusive staff. Hygiene is good and kitchens are visible. Prices are right for the product in this higher end local restaurant. We will go back to Amal Fish Restaurant for our last night in Bentota - thank you Tuk Tuk Charlie!

We ate here for the five nights we stayed at Amal Villa and didn't consider going anywhere else. Recommend the sea food particularly the Jumbo Prawns, easilythe best by far either of us have tasted!Great food, great staff and great value for money. Highly recommend it.

We stayed at Amal Villa for a week, and so ate at this restaurant each day - having sampled others in the area it is outstanding. The fresh sea food, cooked to order, is some of the best we have had in the world, and certainly in Asia. The lobster, prawns, oysters and fish are top quality and beautifully cooked. At dinner in the evening, Amal the owner greets guests personally and ensures everything runs smoothly. The waiters are great and cannot do enough for you. The menu covers a range of dishes, and very good rice and curry if you do not want to have seafood.
Highly recommended - especially the wonderful seafood.
