Fantastic friendly service. I'm planning on eating breakfast, lunch and dinner here until we go home.

Seriously - the burgers are ridiculously good.

“Superb fresh local food - and home made !!”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

After a week of delicious currys I needed a break. Our Friends Hilary & Jeff suggested Koko's.
Now then, I am not a fan of burgers etc but being all curried out I went for one of Garys Burger and chips. It was a Eurika moment !! The chips were real, not frozen, the baps were fresh, the meat was tender...I could not fault it. My Lady wife had a chicken Kabab - succulent, fresh and full of flavour.
Gary, from the UK North east and his lovey Sri Lankan Wife Samedee made us feel very welcome. They also like a good chat :-) . Children are also welcome....
All produce is locally sourced and prepared by Gary (Supporting the local economy) The burgers are prepared daily from scratch, with his own special recipe
Its not a big restaurant but is very big on flavour and quality. We visited several times in our 2 weeks and everytime the food was superb. It has a cracking sea view with a sandy beach frontage
If you like fish and chips, burgers, kebabs, tacos then visit Gary. If you dont like this sort of food the visit Gary......you will be converted!!

This place will let you come back for another meal than curry. The owner (english) and his wife (Sri lankan), where really friendly. Just a good place to have a beer at the beach as well.

“Nice calm simple restaurant”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

If you are staying in Unawatuna longer, go to this place to escape the crowded beach and beach restaurants.
The owner sometimes shows movies on a big screen, I've been told, so maybe a fun night out?

For me I enjoyed the pizza's, they were not extraordinary but it was nice western food after days of fried rice and noodles.

It is a outdoor bar sort of trendy club with sofa's so nice to go with friends, but also on your own a place where you should just walk through the alley and look for yourself.

hi thanks for your kind review.
PLEASE NOTE! unfortunently KOKOS is now solely on the beach at unawatuna, once the garden reopens we will let our guests know. we appologise for any inconvience.

you can still enjoy the warm welcome of the kokos family whilst relaxing on our golden beach.

thanks and blessings
