We first went in the evening to be met by Sam with the biggest smile and beaming green eyes! We sat down and there was an instant blackout with a power cut. No bother, out comes the head torches as he and his staff cook...us a delicious grilled mullet fresh that morning. We arrange a very early breakfast the following morning and he is ready to provide rotis and fresh juices. We had breakfast for the following two mornings. Each time it was different and delicious. Great food, great atmosphere even though sadly few people were there due to the state of emergency.More

This restaurant is exceptional good. The dinner was so tasteful and fresh. They make everything home made and you can see in the clean open kitchen how everything is freshly cooked. This place is a restaurant with a heart! The owner is so friendly, welcoming...and a true host. The lady who cooks is adapting her way of cooking upon your needs. This was the best dinner we had since we arrived in Sri Lanka!More

Great seafood and wonderful service. Even though there was a power cut while we arrived we were seated with candlelight and a nice welcoming. The light arrived exactly when the food arrived and it was generous and very tasty.

Be Cool is a lovely little family run restaurant with truly delicious food and homemade lemonade and they even have beer. The setting is authentic and shady, the owners are very nice and as an added bonus, the neighbour’s cat sometime looks in for cuddles...and a meal.More

Amazing food! Staff makes you feel like family! We loved it so much we ate there almost everyday. We ordered devilled prawns and jumbo prawns every time. On the last night I knew I would miss the food so I ordered double portions, it’s that...good! We rate it the best juice bar and restaurant around town. We highly recommend coming here more than once during your stay!More

I honestly cannot recommend this place enough. The food, the staff, everything is incredible. The food is absolutely delicious and the portions great, the Sri lankan breakfast is what I'd definitely recommend the most, followed by the fish curry special. All the food is so...fresh and the chef deserves to have an even bigger restaurant due to her level of cooking. The staff were brilliant too. After going almost every day for our 11 day stay in Trincomalee we got friendly with the staff to a point they would offer us free meals and extras on top too. It truly is an incredible place. I can't implore anyone enough to come and visit this place to eat, the prices are incredible for the level of food. After visiting you won't regret it.More

Sometimes it is tricky to understand how a restaurant you visit manages to be number 1 on Tripadvisor, at Be Cool it is obvious why they are number 1. A sister, brother, cousin run restaurant serving traditional, and utterly delicious, Sri Lankan food, they also...serve a variety of more western dishes for breakfast lunch and dinner. Watching Sister creating the dishes in the open kitchen is an utter joy, and then everything is served by the friendly, smiling, welcoming boys. The fresh seafood dishes are delicious and the rice and noodle Diane’s have just the right amount of spice to remind you that you’re in Sri Lanka. They also have a wide menu of freshly made juices (all fruit, no filler). Try the specials board for the crab and cuttlefish curries. This restaurant and the family deserve all the success they get. Go there, you won’t be disappointed!More

I came here with friends because they had the top spot on TripAdvisor, and I enjoyed the food. This was my first time trying Kotturoti, and I liked it. The staff was friendly, and while it took a little while to get the food, it...was worth the wait - since the food was cooked to order, it was hot and fresh. They made sure to ask what spice level I wanted the food, which I appreciated, as well.More

Everything they serve is really good. Breakfast, fresh fish but especially their curry is amazing. Best curry in trincomalee! And the owners are wonderful. While there was a lock down due to corona they still were happily serving us. Very grateful for that!
