We are regulars to Black & White as we love the food and the staff are very kind and generous. Favourites are the rice and curry and fish on the grill.

I have visited this restaurant a couple of times. They have amazing cappuccino, I love the cocktails and also the food is tasty. Even in the off season the fish is really fresh, and also the fries are even better than in the Netherlands! ;)

If your visiting unawatuna and Sri Lanka for that matter. Make sure you head to black & white for a bite to eat. You won't be disappointed. Worth mentioning the service as it's great, officiant and very welcoming. Top marks thank you.

Superb shellfish and Sri Lankan chicken and vegetable curry dishes. It's right on the beach and so has that relaxed vibe. Lovely friendly staff - looked after us so well over a 10 day visit. I'll go back - missing the tiger prawns already!

Chicken options are really tasty. Price is reasonable, all main dishes around 800-1000rupies, plus 10% service charge. Not so crowded and dirty like the beginning of unawatuna beach (close to the temple). Really recommend for chicken/vegetables lovers.
