+ We got our drinks faster and the right stuff - that's already a big advantage in Mirissa ( didn't try the food) + big variety of cocktails + happy hour Till 10pm (classic cocktails 1/2 price - beer 300) - sometimes you hear two variety of music because of the restaurant next door - shisha for 2000 per hour,...

This place has a nice and good variety of local and western food. It's located right on the beach with a stunning sea view :-)

Fish was overcooked and the accompanying salad was poor. Because the fish was so fresh to some degree it made up for the poor culinary skills. Didn't get ill as we had done at other restaurants (Zephyr and Wadiya).

Nice setting on the beach and overlooking beach. Food nice enough, though fish portions are on the small side. Cheerful staff.

Looking for a nice dining spot on the beach? Then this is a good option for those visiting mirissa. I visited here on my final night. The sunset was incredible. I sat out on a table on the sand. It wasn't a very busy night bit service was a little slow. I think they struggled a tad to manage all... More

Slap bang in middle of Mirissa beach. Facing sea. Great menu and size of portions. Happy hour 5pm to 9pm cocktails and beer great prices. Good puddings as well. If on this beach you must try.

Their coffee isn't too bad but way too expensive... we had salads, what a mistake... small, boring salads with nothing in them, for 800r++!! Just keep walking and go somewhere else....

Me and my partner went there for drinks and food as we were spending the day on beach. We ordered grilled tuna and grilled yellow fin tuna, food arrived quickly but anyway fries were quite cold already and both of our tunas were overcooked, so dry and was missing a flavour. They give you a small packet of ketchup with... More

It's a nice place for having cocktails in their happy hours from 5 till 9 p.m. while watching the sunset.

Awesome beach front location. Literally walk 25 steps from your room to the beach sun lounges. Sun chairs provided free if you are staying here. (500 if you are not). Make sure you put your towel on the sun lounge at around 9am! You can then have it all day until around 5.30pm when they pack down and start setting... More
