This place has undoubtedly good food and had live music but was damn expensive.. Fishes were 500 bucks per 100 gm and any fish is at least 400-450 gms, that makes 2000 for a fish !! We ordered Rice & Chicken Curry but one needs to understand what exactly is rice & curry in Sri Lanka. Rice & Curry =... More

Having had a great experience last year, we revisited this restaurant last night, and had another great meal. Chose red snapper from a wide range of fish, cooked perfectly and good, efficient service.

Stopped for lunch in January and thought it was very expensive for where we were. Didn't like the menu and when my wife asked for non spicy it came spicy. not a nice experience, I like local places and prices when I am away and this is neither. I feel it is over priced. Would not recommend.

Dropped off in front of the fresh fish counter (the tuctuc driver gets a 10% kickback on our bill! so we were being manipulated) and we were launched straight into 'choose a fish or crab'...bulldozered into a choice without being told the total price or even being shown a menu .......told to go find a seat......! without even being told...

I was having dinner at Amal Restairant at my 1st visit in Bentota. I haven't had chance to stay at their hotel and Vila but lucky that I can found a nice restaurant around my Vila, which : Amal Restaurant. The food is delicious and good ambience. I definitely will come back again if I have chance.

This was a stunning setting at night with the trees all lit by fairy lights. There was an excellent seafood display downstairs including a tank of lobsters. There was a private party being held at the time of our visit so we ate upstairs. The menu had quite an extensive choice. It took quite a while to get drinks, though... More

Amal restaurant is one of the best places to try out Sri Lankan sea food. We absolutely loved the fresh prawns curry there which was made spicy as per our order. The wok chicken fried rice, fish & chips and vegetable noodles were also lip smacking. It's proximity to the beach is an added advantage. Surely a must visit place... More
