“Best chilled-out restaurant on Unawatuna Beach.”
Reviewed January 6, 2013 via mobile

Wonderful restaurant on the most cholled part of Unawatuna Beach. Fantastic food - any time if day, but breakfast highly recommended.

They have 10 nice sunbeds too - but get in early as they go quickly!

Staff really friendly and helpful too.

Highly recommended.

“forgotten how many meals we had here and each one was great”
Reviewed December 30, 2012

we were staying in the apartment next door and went to this place for multiple meals (a breakfast every day) and were happy every time. great service - they would deliver it to our rooms also :). prices are also manageable and food taste/quality is also great. highly recommended. given the location on the beach, it is a great place for a romantic dinner also :)

“totally agree with Markilly”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

I went for the 4th time to Unawatuna and I did a lot of restaurants. That one is just magic. Its allmost like of being in a gourmet restaurant. The best tuna I've ever eat in my life, beef, tender as butter and pasta, you feel like singing oh sole mio. Quality / price unbeatable . Enjoy yourself.

“Average - music got in the way of dinner conversation”
Reviewed December 19, 2012 via mobile

If i was just reviewing my dinner it would be a 2 for food as i had the fried moodles and fish = two minute noodles with a small amount of mixed seafood which lacked any flavour

others were happy enough with their choices - but on balance we wont return

We also found the music a little loud for dinner time conversation

“Great food and atmosphere”
Reviewed December 5, 2012 via mobile

We stayed in Unawatuna for two weeks and tried many restaurants during this time but always returned here as the food was so good. The curry is excellent with the traditional variety of veg currys and a meat curry, the presentation is beautiful and definately worth trying! The seafood is wonderful and was always beautifully cooked. Everything was excellent value for money and the staff were really friendly and helpful. If you are looking for a wonderful meal then try the Flamingo!!!
