Went here one night, me and my partner had chicken roasted with chicken and butter chicken curry and it was amazing. Went here another night, sweet and sour chicken was terrible and chicken burger was abysmal. Made with chicken loaf. So, pure 50/50. Good luck

Well it was about 6 o'clock and we have looked at every restaurant on the beach and couldn't really decide. Figured peacock had decent prices and a good view so have it a shot! I ordered grilled chicken and chips and my bf ordered butter chicken. My grilled chicken was cooked perfectly. Slight crisp to the outside with good Sauce... More

Order the side dish mashed potato and you know what I mean… For LKR 400 you get a tablespoon of mashed potato. Come on guys, you can do it better! Grilled fish, tough like plastic with a spicy paste aside. Fish: 1500 LKR Not worth the price and time. Take a ride to Dutch Hospital, Galle for better food.

Very bad food. They even put water in the wine. Genarally, the food was terrible. Do not spend your expensive time there.

We were here for a dinner and it was so bad, even for a third world country. The food was so ugly so we just left it. In addition, to minimize their cost they blended the wine with water.. In short- don't go!!!

True they have a cheap menu, but you're sure to find flies in your rice, dead mosquitos in your lassy, horrible music, and rude owner! Go next door!

The Peacock Restaurant is at the quiet end of the beach and it's only okay particularly given the choice of other restaurants on the beachfront. We were disappointed that their bbq wasn't available the night we were there and while the crab was nice, the actual amount of meat was quiet small. Chicken kebab was nice but wasn't presented as...

Nice big prawns. Lovely views of the sea. Dull and impersonal staff. The food is not presented in a stylish way. The taste was good, in other place you can get food served nicer and neater presented for the same price

They cannot cook. When the management was advised, the response was we need to find a cheff. Frankly they should just provide breakfast and toast and not have such an absurd varied menu. The view and ambience is really good, and would be great for just having a drink. BTW don`t order potato wedges: more like chips
