Was excited to see the beautiful beach and settled down for beer and lunch at this restaurant. The place was reasonably crowded . We found a shaded table on the edge of the beach. We ordered Grilled prawns, Seafood platter and Srilankan Curry with rice. The portions were good. The food looked great but the food was terribly overcooked to... More

Location wise this couldn't be better, you can sit in a raised bale or chairs and tables in the shade and enjoy a cool drink while watching the waves roll in. We had the pan fried calamari and the garlic prawns. Both were generous serves and delicious. Our daughter had a pizza which looked ok, it must have been as... More

Really nice restaurant. Be sure to order the Sri Lankan food as it is the food you will want. Be prepared to order less meals than you are people as what they provide is much more than you can eat. For us (2 adults, 4 hungry teenage boys and 2 young girls) we would all have been full with 6... More

Had a really nice meal with family here. Pizza was great, curry was delicious and the service was excellent. Our waiter was really nice and even told me how to make the delicious aubergine dish we ate. Sat at a table on the beach which was great with kids. Beautiful views of the Indian Ocean too!

We visited this place twice. First in the mid of the day we were waiting for 30 minutes to order. Second time in the evening they were very fast, but there was a big piece of sand in the food. Waiter did not do anything about it.
