Spent the day here, on a sun bed, had lunch which was good. Ended up back for dinner and had their seafood bbq! It was amazing... if you are in Unawatuna you need to eat here at least once !

We were told by our friends to try Lucky Tuna for the live band. The boys playing were amazing and the staff were very friendly and fun! We had the prawns which were delicious!

Got food poisoning from eating one of their "fresh" tunas from the bbq (had been eating plain food the rest of the day, so 99% sure this must be it). Sick for 2 days now. Thanks for ruining the ending of a nice vacation.

The best restaurant. Delicious food, well and fast cooked. Not expensive. I recommend it for romantic dinner sitting near ocean. Thank you Lucky Tuna for 2 nice evenings, greetings from Russia.
