Description: We found this listed in Lonely Planet and decided to check it out as we were desperate for good food options in Tangalle. It was a wonderful discovery, but its quite hard to find in the dark, so going there for dinner the first time was probably not a great idea! We liked it so much that we returned the next day for lunch too. Location & ambiance are great. Food was good value for money & it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere that is great for chillin. Would probably book their cabanas for a nice beach holiday next time. Great place!

“Excellent stay on the beach, great food, perfect staff”
Reviewed December 24, 2011

We have enjoyed our 3 nights here. Being 3 km away from Tangalla we had the beach to ourselves. You can spend hours walking and tryijng to find turtles who come to shore. The cabanas are perfect. The food they serve at the restaurant is of high quality and the staff is friendly and professional. We loved it! Yes the sea too rough to swim in but you can use the reef-sheltered sea-pool at the chalets 10 minutes away incl their beach-chairs. Body-surfing in the sea next to the Shasha fish-joint is lots of fun.

“Amazing location, great ambience, good food”
Reviewed August 21, 2011

We only visited for meals, but that was great. It has a lovely, relaxed vibe that encourages you to simply hang out, play board/card games and simply chill. In a place like Tangalle with so few dining options, this was a great find!

Very good value for money too.
