Accommodation is simple, clean and everything it needs. You can not top the location. Food is excellent and price quality value... More

Located in a quieter beach part of Tangalle this restaurant provides better prices for seefood than other restaurants. Staff extremely caring, food delicious (yummy chocolate pancakes!) and juices rich in flavour and no extra sugar.

I visited here whilst on a walk along the beach and it looked welcoming so I popped in.It has a fine view out to the ocean.The menu was quite extensive,but as usual I opted for the veggie curry with five curries.I was told it would be 40 minutes which is fine because it is being made from scratch.I ordered a...

We made the mistake of ordering western food (a cheese sandwich and a cheese toast); our lesson learned was 'when in Rome, eat what the Romans eat.' That is, stick to Sri Lankan food. The cheese was barely evident and not what we knew to be cheese. I... More
