“Amazing burgers!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

After eating as much Sri Lankan cuisine as possible on our short two week vacation, a delicious beef burger was a welcome change. Whilst sitting in the bar watching the rugby, we decided to order a burger after seeing a friend of the owner eating one - it looked and smelt great!! We got a run down about how the UK owner and his lovely wife, bake fresh rolls each day and mince the beef themselves! You can eat in their bar where you will be welcomed with open arms and hospitality by the owner's family and dog (and a place to watch any sport imaginable), or on the beach with beautiful water views. Thanks Gary, we loved hanging out at the bar, eating burgers, drinking Lion's and getting our washing done!

“Best one around Unawatuna”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Having been 6 days to the south of Sri Lanka, we've read about the Koko's place (at the beach, and the Garden nearby) and both were easily found.

The food served, excellent, best we've come across in Unawatuna...in terms of non-curry, non-seafood and alike. Burger, Fish&Chips, Pizza and alike, all freshly made and to expectation. Prices were reasonable, and other requests (e.g. showing a 5 pm kickoff between Chelsea v Man U, was not a problem).

All in all, a nice spot in Unawatuna, and can only recommend others going there, should they be able to visit this lovely part of Sri Lanka.

“Good wood fired pizza”
Reviewed April 6, 2013

My husband and I were craving pizza and had read other views stating they were good. We weren't disappointed, the pizzas are tasty, maybe a little expensive compared to other places around though. We weren't bothered about the football on tv but it caters for those who wish to watch it, it was pleasant enough.

“Delightful spot”
Reviewed March 4, 2013

This is a new place near the beach in the hub of Unawatuna, having only opened in Dec 2012. We had a lovely pizza here and a great chat with Gary the owner who's wife had just had their 2nd baby. Both girls are gorgeous and his wife seems really friendly too. It's a comfortable spot with a nice relaxed atmosphere. Would recommend.

Had craving for fish and chips and hunted this place down. Directed from the main place to the one the by sea the friendy English owner. White fish at 500+rs was just decent.
