Not fancy, music barely sounds with small cocktail assortment but it’s a nice, quiet place right on the beach and whatever we tried was tasty! The highlight was the extremely nice local waiter who is always smiling and willing to explain everything!

This place is at a great location at the beach with great views. But it is part of a hotel and the alcohol prices are extortionate. You should support local restaurants and businesses rather than hotel chains!

Great vantage point day and night. Away from the hassle of the beach vendors it was a little reprieve but can imagine it's great for sunset.

a nice cafe on Bentota beach affording a spectacular sunset on a clear day. The cocktails are worth indulging in as is the coffee.

Great view of the sunset Food is good and the kitchen is below the bar so the waiters bring the food up the stairs from the kitchen below. Nice atmosphere.
