We came back for breakfast and had coconut roti with dal and sambal. So good. I wish we weren't leaving now so I could take Mama's cooking...

Visited with friends and ordered some great food and had a free lion beer using my Elephant Card. This is a well run family business with some great ocean views, had a great time. Thoroughly recommended.

Hidden place next the beach, terrible accommodation facilities. Be careful when trying to sell you tickets for whale watching as they will try to rip you off with sneaky arguments (check guides advice first!). Good food due to their good chef trained in Colombo Hilton Hotel.

Beautiful Guest House a few steps from Mirissa Beach. Clean Rooms with small Veranda for 3000 Rs. But why we come here again and again is the Food that is the best that we ate so far in Sri Lanka. Real Home Food cooked by Mama. Try the Pinapple Curry :)
