A little hidden but a nice surprise when you walk through the doors. Very popular with tourists. Service was good but unfortunately the seafood platter was overcooked... would give it a second chance with a different meal option.

We stayed in Bentota for 12 nights and tried quite a few restaurants. Pier 88 was easily the best. Menu was extensive, reasonable, waiters were charming and food was amazing. Even had cocktails. Would give them 6 out of 5 if I could lol

Food was ok in taste. Have had better elsewhere, hence average score. The portions were big though. Nice setting by the river. Good service too.

Hi, your coffee is absolutely fantastic. Your meal we did not enjoy that much. However, it might have been just one of those evenings, where things do not work out. All the best. middlepark traveller
