Description: Neela's beach restaurant offers a delicious food and a friendly atmosphere. Our beachfront location means you can sit on the beach or on the wooden decor until your food is served. Hikkaduwa is a paradise for the swimmers, sun worshippers, surfers and snorkellers. Popular surf breaks are minutes away or just relax on a sunbed and watch the turquoise waves roll in. Our restaurant is only a few short steps from the sea. Begin the day with a leisurely breakfast or join us for a lazy lunch. At the end of the day enjoy an amazing sunset followed by dinner under the stars. Our family have been welcoming tourists to Hikkaduwa for more than 30 years. Our experience ensures great service and attention to detail; whether you're a first time visitor or one of our old friends. So come and sample traditional Sri Lankan hospitality in beautiful south west Sri Lanka. See you soon!

Ate here a number of times while we were in Hikkaduwa, the calamari was delicious and a very generous serving, would recommend.

Very friendly service, really good food and great location. You know when you’re on a beach and there are empty restaurants and there is one that is full? This is that place! So good that everyone comes here and comes back.

I ate there for almost every meal in 3 days! Good for a curry or other yummy meal from the menu...also just for a beer and some popadoms with coconut sambal. Really nice food. Great view of the sea directly in front of you, sitting amongst palm trees, nice to watch the sun set.

Went for evening meal. Lovely position on the beach and nice service. Ordered beer and a glass of white wine. Both were chilled and the beer in a chilled glass and bottle in an insulated holder - great!
For meal we ordered the catch of the day - fish steaks with rice and salad. The fish steak was very thin indeed and the salad was a cupful, which all tasted good but still left us still quite hungry. The cost was good around 45000 for a main course and drink for 2. So good overall.

Fantastic food,beautifully presented with incredibly reasonable prices.
Great beach side location with atmospheric lighting.Candles flickered and waves crashing and excellent attentive service.
My husband enjoyed the seared fish and I embraced the yummy grilled chicken with a side salad.Very Generous portions as we have found are usual for Sri Lankan cruising...
Also a nice glass of chilled white wine topped of a memorable evening dining under the stars.
Thank you to the team at NEELAS Beach Restaurant.
