It's not that expensive here for what you get. Stuff is really nice and one woman which has been to Europe takes care. You can feel her Hand!! Restaurant is the best Seafood Barbecue in Trincomalee!!! Go there!

We ate for lunch at Shiva's and we appreciated nice atmosphere on the beach, and the typical food : fried rice egg and chicken, fried noodles and it looks not too much expensive. Very good adress if you eat quick, cheap, and good food!!!!

Reception staff rude and uncaring and very unwelcoming. No hot water, bathroom was dirty and mouldy.

We stayed for 4...

This place should be so much better given its beachside location but it misses out because of the appalling service at the restaurant. The evening BBQ is good but be prepared to wait. Not exactly friendly either - ditto much of the Uppuveli beach area.
