What a great little place - right by Tangalle Bay. It has around 6 tables and the waiter/chef cooks all the food fresh and on the spot. The grilled prawns are to die for. You can use his comfortable, shady beachside relaxers and ther is a loo and shower round the back. Spend the afternoon and early evening here. The swimming is great too - very safe. This guy deserves your support as he lost his large restaurant in the Tsunami and has had to start all over again in this small way.

We went to Cactus Lounge for three dinners is a week. The seafood is so tasty and prepared with love by the owner who will take your order and go prepare your food right away! Dining in one of the three tables of the restaurant, the sea a few steps away from you... it's just dreamlike! Highly recommended!

We ordered fish and prawns in the morning, the owner arranged thereafter while we sat 10 feet from the water, listened to the waves and ate fresh catch of the day. The owner was a charming man, the food was great, the beer cold, price very reasonable, the experience unique - catch it before it disappears.

Lovely owner who's v friendly and serves great fish and beers right on the beach. His place was destroyed in the tsunami and rebuilt on a smaller scale. Please support this great local restaurant, some of the best seafood we've had anywhere in the world. He works alone so give him time but its worth the wait!
