My husband and I visited this restaurant for dinner based on the great reviews on Trip Advisor. The seafood was fresh and the food took time to come as it was prepared after the order was placed. So it was hot and tasty. The place is owned by a lovely couple. The husband kept us company while the wife prepared the food. Great portions and the price per person was reasonable. We sat outside on the balcony as it was a nice and cool night. I wouldn't say this is the best place for seafood but we would visit again

We had a crab curry, prawn curry and the 3 traditional veg curries. It was all delicious and fresh, the crab curry and sambol were particularly lovely. The couple that own it are very friendly. There is beer and wine available.

A must visit if staying at Mount Lavina Hotel.
We went for a night and returned the next as we were all so impressed.
Food was well worth it-fresh, home style, local cuisine. Service was great with husband serving and wife cooking. Great for kids as also had 'western ' options for fussy kids.. Well priced and great size servings.
English speaking and very friendly sharing with us some information about their family and sights in Sri Lanka. Also offered our children free wi-fi.
A must visit - you will not be disappointed.
well done
