Alex and I would like to say a bit thank you to Yohan, Jayasantha , Patrick and family for making our trip to Sri Lanka so special. We stayed at The Avani Hotel, Kalatura for two weeks and were lucky enough to meet a lovely, friendly family by eating at their restaurant the Red Lobster. We had the seafood platter which was delicious followed by fresh pineapple from their Uncles crop, mango and papaya.
Yohan and Jayasantha who are brothers are also tour guides and offer trips to wherever you wish to go as their father Patrick is one of the drivers. Their tours are half the price of what the rep quoted us at the hotel. We did Kandy with Yohan and Galle with Jayasantha and we were looked after extremely well. They both speak very good English, especially Yohan.
If you are staying near the Avani or Kalatura I highly recommend the Red Lobster and the tours that this family provide.

We visited Red Lobster on a recent trip to Sri Lanka, following reviews on trip advisor and recommendations from guests that were in the hotel. We ordered the sea food platter, which had 2 lobster, 5 king prawns, tuna steak and cuttlefish. Plus 2 curries, huge bowl of rice, fruit bowl and pineapple. Oh and 2 beers which came to about £20. Food was lovely, service was great.

While there we also booked a one day trip with them too. We went to the elephant orphanage, elephant riding centre, temple of the tooth in Kandy, tea factory, botanical gardens. We had a mini bus to ourselves it was a long day well worth it. All cost about £120.

Would highly recommend for both meals and trips

Well done lads

We visited Red Lobster for dinner last week whilst staying in Sri Lanka at the Avani Kalutara hotel. Although we were all inclusive at the hotel and the hotel food was very good we had heard good things about the Red Lobster and so went for dinner - we were certainly not disappointed!

Yohan and his brother looked after us well and the food, cooked by their mother, was gorgeous! For around £25 (total for both of us) we had a huge seafood platter (fresh lobster, crab, huge prawns, cuttle fish etc), plus two curries, rice, salad, fruit and four big bottles of Lion beer. It was great value and fabulous food.

I recommend that anybody staying in Kalutara should try the restaurant and if you are at the Avani Kalutara then I'd say it is a must for a lunch or dinner at least once during your stay as it is literally two minutes walk from the hotel.

A lovely family restaurant with great fresh seafood!

We ate at the Red Lobster and the food was lovely. Yohan and his family were very accommodating. We also booked some tours through the restaurant and Patrick was an excellent driver and only took you where you requested. Definitely recommend them for food and for booking your trips.

One of the best food experience! If you want to pamper yourself eating fish including lobster, this is the place to go. Where else can you eat a variety of fish, 2 curry's, rice, salad, fruits and 2 beers for £22?! The owners are very friendly and it is a shame tourists go all inclusive and do not try the local food. If you are a fish lover than this is a place to go. It is walking distance from Avani Hotel and a very safe and clean place. It beats the hotel food by a mile! The owner's sons speak good English and a list of other languages.

Red Lobster also do tours. Although the tours are a little bit pricey, the family looked after us throughout the day.You can have the exprience of a private tour on the private people's carrier or you can decide to go cheaper and find other tourists that are willing to share the car.

I would recommend anyone to at least try once this fish experience. It is honestly the best food I have ever eaten.

Well done boys!
