Best burger I've ever had, run by a lovely family. Decent prices and an amazing beach setting. Highly recommended the Tex-Mex burger. Real chips too!

Great food for a change from the local food and great service. Kids had jacket potato and English style fish and chips. The beef chilli taco was great, but..... HOT!

We met Koko after it started pouring rain at the beach, we sat down just by chance while we waited for the rain to stop and then we decided to have a drink, no long after that we decided to have dinner and just ordered couple of kebabs and burgers, food was very good and relatively fast, and not overpriced...

Lovely brunch and made full use of the sunbeds for the day. Had a lovely chat with the guy who runs the place (hope your cheeky little daughter is keeping you busy!) First beach we hit on our stay in Sri Lanka and it was beautiful.

Lazy disinterested service. Food was decent but small portions. Way overpriced. Disappointing. Much better options in same and lower price points. Give it a pass.

Had fish and chips here. Very good and "true" to its origin. Lot of different dressing to chose from. They dont have permission so sell alcohol so no beer.
