Koko's is a nice family-run restaurant with great service and good food. We ordered a hawaiian pizza and fish and chips. Hawaiian pizza was a nice thin crust with perfectly crisp edges and extra gooey cheese. Fish and chips were tasty, sort of what you'd expect. The guy who runs the place is a really nice fellow as are his... More

Our 7 year old son's favourite place to eat, mainly due to the gorgeous, friendly children of the owners, he's already missing the oldest girl and we aren't out of Sri Lanka yet. However my husband and I loved the food so we're more than happy to return most days. Freshly cooked daily, the chips are like the 'fish and... More

The reviews are true - good quality, freshly made "pub" food- tasty tacos, burgers and wraps - when your taste buds are over curry

At this beach probably you won't think of taking a burger, however, if you really want some, than this place is the right place to go. Their burger was amazing. Fish and chips was below our expectation, but pizza was good. Ginger beer is a good match with a burger. Recommended!

This place is known for its burgers and fish n chips. So we gave these a try, and were happy we did! The fish was fresh, and beautifully batter fried. The chips were a bit soggy (we prefer them really crisp). The beef burger was delicious. A very pleasant change from the typical seafood/curry served up on Unawatuna beach. Best... More

The food was tasty and reasonably priced. We ate a fish taco and mixed kebab. They actually looked pretty similar, albeit with an exchange of meat. So expect something that is not uour classical taco or kebab. They were still delicious though. And the service was friendly and expedient.

It's not fancy but it's nice and clean. On the beach. Fast. Great hamburger, really tasty meat. French fries also very good. We stayed 3 days in Unewatuna and had this hamburger twice.

Complete value for money. The owner, Gary is very warm and genuine, not money minded. So he serves the best food, and is cheapest around here. The reason they don't have alcohol is due to local politics and licensing issues, don't let that stop you from visiting here. Totally worth it. PS - the view is brilliant too.
