Perhaps we didn't see the restaurant at its best. We ordered devilled prawns and grilled chicken and prawns. While the prawns were ok, overall the devilled dish was a bit bland and just tasted like a sweet and sour chicken and not a great one... The chicken was dry! service was great and it was a beautify setting at a... More

Located on the main A2 so it looks nothing from the roadside but enter and the terrace has a glorious view of the sweep of Unawatunna beach. We had a lovely lunch here and intend to return for an evening before we go home! Lovely people who make you feel very welcome!

It's at an absolutely gorgeous location and the food is just amazing. Sri Lankan cuisine is marvellously rich on spices and yet the flavours r very subtle and not overpowering. We had the veg rice and curry, seer fish curry, garlic tiger prawns with saffron rice and an alfredo penne pasta. Food was simply delicious and the waiter was a... More

We stayed at the guest house above the restaurant. Amazing beach and view. Wonderful breakfast. Great staff. We loved it. Take a tuk tuk to town as walk is a long a busy road.

We visited this restaurant twice in the last week. Both times the food was excellent. I had a wood fire pizza on the first visit which was tasty and big. Second visit I had a chicken and prawn penne pasta. Again delicious and a big portion. And the dessert, a pineapple fritter with ice cream was soooo delicious. The cocktails... More

The food is amazing from curry to pizza... delish the curry for one was enough to feed an army, so much so that we took the pizza home, as we could not finish it, great ;location overlooking the ocean.

Good food and great service! I would recommend taking a pizza or the devilled chicken, and make it Sri Lankan spicy ;)

Fantastic seaview, straight to sunset in the evening. Hearing waves and sitting under the trees increases the already excellent experience. The food here is better than in most places nearby - for me the best was traditional rice and curry; pizza also is perfect. Hotel and restaurant staff here are wonderful people!

Because the food in our hotel was both expensive as not very tasty, we ventured to the next town. It was advised by some people of our travelling group, especially the pizza were supposed to be a treat. We had spend the greater part of the day in Galle and on our way back we left for a very late... More
