Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food is good. The menu is for every taste: seafood, local, European. Location is perfect. Right near sea with a great view. The atmosphere at the restaurant is nice as well. Very friendly staff, especially Shanty. I recommend.

In our point of view this restaurant is just pricey and not worth it. The fish was good but a little bit burned. The prawns weren’t fresh and not eatable. We weren’t charged fot the prawns but we had to pay 800 rp for service...charge!!!!!More

The restuarant is truly at a lovely location and has some of the best most relaxing music playing all day. The bar is fully stocked and the food is also of top quality. Their Chicken rice was great , their mahi mahi in lemon chilli...was really not, their breakfast pizza was awesome and so were their croissants. They also make some amazing coffee and you must try their sea food platterMore

I could not eat my meal at this restaurant. I would like to think that the cook had taken a night off and had been replaced. Our waiter was extremely kind and attentive but even he was shame-faced at what was served up. We started...with thai crabs. This was ok but there was nothing Thai about the creamy sauce in the shells. At least they were edible...When the waiter took our order, he recommended the Norwegian salmon...um, in SRI LANKA, in a restaurant overlooking the sea ? I said I wanted fish, so he said the steamed fish in chilli and garlic was super-fresh. It turned out to be a rock-hard lump of grey"fish" served in a bowl of Thai fish sauce (normally used to salt food). It was inedible. My husband ordered pasta, which was not good either. The waiter got even more sheepish(poor man) when I said that the fish was not fresh and that I could not eat it anyway because it was floating in a super-salty liquid and not the chilli and garlic described on the menu. Starving , I ordered some"home-made" ice cream; which arrived liquid. The waiter explained to me that they just could not get the caramel ice cream to set..imagine this liquid sitting in the freezer.. euw! It was an expensive evening, as luckily we had a bottle of wine to get us through the ordeal ended up laughing about how awful it was.Hilariously awful.More

We feel pretty qualified to be able to review the restaurant at Cantaloupe Aqua, Unawatuna, as we did not simply eat there on a single occasion, but many times during our stay and at various times of the day. The friendly chef, Nandana, produces some...superb cuisine including traditional Sri Lankan curries. The food was beautifully presented and reasonably priced with excellent service. We would highly recommend Coconut Restaurant. Norman & Bernice.More
