O.k., how to say this politely... The service was o.k., drinks were o.k., but we had the grilled fish (overpriced - but this is probably the problem of whole Unawatuna) which I doubt was grilled. I could not separate the meet from the bones so the fish was good only for a dog. Maybe it was an exception but we... More

Had entrees main and dessert and all was delicious. Overall everything was great and would recommend the crumbed calamari for an... More

Maybe I just ordered the wrong thing but we couldn't even finish our pizza, it was so bad. The service was terrible as well. The owners has a bad attitude.

One of us got the Chopsuey, which is actually a Stir Fry, but it was really good. The waitor was very nice and attended us very well. Their have tables on the sand and in their... More

I can't share the other reviewers experiences : We had a nice barbequed jumbo prawn with the ubiquous salad&pommes frites you get everywhere on the beach. The prawn were fresh and delicious (look and smell at them before you order!) and the beer was icecold.

If it's warm beer and lousy curry your looking for, then go no further than the Peacock. Ate there once and never again in 2 weeks on the beach. A serious disappointment

Awful awful food. My husband and I ordered a chicken curry, which was full of bones and skin and tasted bad. The location is lovely, an would reccommend for a drink.

We went to Peacock for lunch on the day we arrived and got a really warm welcome from the staff. We ordered some local rice and curry and though it took awhile (I like to think they cooked it fresh from scratch so the delay!!) the food was well worth the wait. Great place with the waves literally lapping up... More
