“A great little restaurant/guesthouse in Tangalle”
Reviewed April 9, 2014

Great little place to stay and/or grab a bite to eat, and run by an extremely friendly and helpful couple! It was clean, comfortable and close the the bus station. It's only a minute walk to the main beach (which actually isn't so nice), but still only a short walk to the nicer beaches further east. If you're looking for a relaxing and welcoming place to stay in Tangalle and don't mind that it's not directly on the beach, then look on further!

And did I mention the food? The rice and curry was delicious!

“Great Stay, Great food, Great people!”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

We stayed in the accommodation here for 2 nights and had dinner and breakfast, the food was all very fresh and flavoursome and we really enjoyed our stay. Locally caught lobster and prawns as well as the traditional Sri Lankan breakfast were all delicious.

“Fantastic food and lovely homestay”
Reviewed March 30, 2014 via mobile

The food is fantastic, especially the prawns and yellow fin tuna curry - the tuna is landed daily at the harbour and is caught by line and rod! Tastes excellent in a mild curry! Selection of veg curries is lovely too, and the tastiest Dahl and roti i have had by the coast. Very friendly , it's a must!

“Terrible food and slow service”
Reviewed March 30, 2014

Maybe it was an off night but our food was the worst we had in sri lanka. The roti was rock hard, nothing like any of the other rotis we had on our trip. Then I had the vegetable curry and it took about 45 minutes and again it was the worst curry I have had, watery and bland with 5 pieces of potato. Not impressed.
