Jesus! What a show! I can't be bothered to go through everything we experienced over dinner at this place. To keep it short: Some things worked, some things didn't, the chef (who was also waiter, manager and dish washer) was wasted as hell and food was excellent! I think it is worth going here once, it's kind of fun. Second... More

I ordered a tuna and potato dish that was perfectly cooked but the dish lacked imagination but was perfectly good to eat. Choice of wine very limited asa well either white or red!

To find Dream House in the dark needs a little searching, but you will be happy. Tried it two times, fish and pasta, was both wonderful. You can have a cool beer, original parmesan from Italy and a wonderful quiet place behind walls with a garden. Music is not to loud like for instance in black and white and other... More

If you're tired of rice & curry and yearn for a taste of Europe try this place. It's not the cheapest meal you'll find but if you are willing to pay a little more for some quality, imported ingredients then it's absolutely worth the price. Great setting, friendly hosts. The penne all'arrabbiata was delicious.

This guest house is worth a stay for sure!!! What a great place. Don't look any further and choose this guest house if you are planning a stay in Unawatuna. The host Pyal is a great host and understands hospitality and service. The guesthouse is owned by an Italian couple, and that shows if you look at the interior. The... More

It was a big pleasure to stay at The Dream House guest house. A very enjoyable guest house with excellent service and comfortable rooms. The restaurant area is very beautiful and they serve delicious dinner with the candle lights. The staff are always attentive, friendly and ready to serve us. It's an old colonial villa beautifully decorated with Sri lankan... More

We didn't intend to visit a third time but as this restaurant was very close to our hotel ,the Bapathanni Resort ,we went again .A big power cut.....no lights ANYWHERE and so the thought of walking towards our intended beach destination did not fill us with glee!,,when we arrived,there were candles lit everywhere and gave the whole area a real...

We booked a table here after reading about it in the Rough Guide but then we were worried after reading the reviews on tripadvisor. Luckily the reviews we read were unfounded and we had a thoroughly good meal at Dreams! Firstly, it is set in a beautiful little garden, the service is excellent - not rushed, nor painstakingly slow! We... More
