“Unlucky tuna!”
Reviewed January 20, 2014

We loved this restaurant and ate there a number of times on our holiday. The atmosphere was spot on (chilled music, right beside sea), the food was mainly fresh seafood but we thought this restaurant should be called unlucky tuna as we ate a lot of tuna! All prices were inclusive too which was appreciated, and good value

“Great location average food”
Reviewed January 15, 2014 via mobile

Recommended by our hotel as a place to go . The waiter was so smiley and lovely we gave him a tip. The food is ok, I had battered prawns and chips, prawns were overcooked but edible. It's more lunch than a dinner venue. If you want quicky, tasty and reasonably priced food then Lucky Tuna is the place for you.

“Excellent Location on Beachfront and Food”
Reviewed January 9, 2014

What an excellent location and the food is delicious. You won't make a mistake on your choice. The fish and calamari are great with a nice salad and fries.

“Exceptional Service”
Reviewed January 2, 2014

I really like going to Lucky Tuna - it's a great spot - amazing view out to sea and the water just inches away (shame that the beach that use to be here has mostly eroded away). The atmospher here is very good - lots of friendly people just having a good time.

The food is so-so. like so many places in Sri Lanka overcooked fish/seafood seems to be the norm. That said - our server saw that I had not eaten the fish (because it was beyond overcooked) and quickly asked whether there was anything else I wanted that they could offer instead. I declined, so they promptly removed the cost from my bill with no fiss at all. First class service.
