“Nice little beach place for seafood - not cheap, but good for what you get”
Review of Seaside Garden

Restaurant details
Reviewed February 9, 2012

This friendly simple beach side restaurant is on a quite beach in an area otherwise devoid of nice restaurants.

The owner / manager / person preporting to be such, is a frieldy old Sri Lankan who will probably try and flag you down to have a chat to you if you ever find yourself on the beach in the daytime. He's too friendly to be classed as a tout though.

The food is seafood - that's pretty much it, and the entry level meal (other than some devilled dishes they try to discorage you from considering) is grilled fish for rs1500 which seems a bit steep. However, this includes surprisingly nice chips and salad (which oddly seem to be served as a starter) and a plate of fruit served as a desert.

The same price gets you calimari or prawns, and a slightly higher price gets you jambo prawns and lobster.

The grilled fish was very generously portioned, and infact was served as two bream-sized fish because they thought 1 was too small for one person. Nicely grilled and seasoned with light spices. The fish, like all their seafood was caught off the beach that day and tastes very fresh.

They serve wine which I didn't venture into, but the lion beer for rs200 per large bottle brings no complaints from me!

A bit more than your average meal in Sri Lanka but fresh fish on a beach is a good thing, so it's worth putting your hands in your pockets for.

(They also have a few rooms for hire, but we were staying at the nearby Ran Sea so didn't look into those.)
