“Charming beach restaurant, excellent sea food and curry”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2014

We came first to that place because the atmosphere seemed so nice with the tables on the beach and candles everywhere. We were suprised about the quality of the food. We had some of the best curries so far in Sri Lanka, and the next Day when we came back we had the most perfect seafood. They changed their whole kitchen and service staff 3 weeks ago and have a lot of ambition for the place - which you can see and taste! We can highly recommend the place that stands out between all those other beach restaurants.

“Best coffee and food in Tangalle”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2013

Dilena Beach Inn Sea Food restaurant is a really awesome place to eat; the restaurant menu is very varied, portions are big and dishes cater to every taste- especially those who love sea food should not complain. And now very important information for coffee lovers – they serve the best coffee I drank in Sri Lanka – and you can choose from wide variety of coffees –lattes, cappuccino, espresso etc. and trust me – it is not that common in Sri Lanka. In other words – if you love coffee, this place is a must - do not miss it!

“Great food and nice restaurant”

I came back to Dilena Beach Inn a second time last month and I still love this place. The fresh sea food/fish and salad was great. I´d love to come back again!

“the best restaurant and place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013 via mobile

It is the best restaurant, with good food, especally sea food. They also have good coffee and lime tea. The stuff, especially Kasun, and rest of the crew are very friendly. They have a lot of information. In front of the restaurant they have hammock and you can enjoy near the sea.
