Superb food, the best cocktails. The staff always gave us a warm welcome. If you go with kids, they will do anything to make them feel comfortable. If you go with friends, you're sure to always have a good time.
Chill or party vibes, the Riddim is the place to be in Unawatuna. Thanks to the new staff for the nice moments we had there. Congratulations with your new concept! I'm a big fan!!

The food; simply sensational. I had the Catch of the Day, which should be renamed as Catch of the Bay because its worlds apart from what's on offer from the other restaurants. Follow that up with cool beers, killer tunes and a great host and what you're left with a terrific experience. Definitely plan to revisit when I head down again, highly recommend the place.

Great bar and restaurant!
I liked it because it was away from the busy Unawatuna beach area, where hundreds of tables and lights occupy the beach. Riddim was only a 5min walk away from it and you actually can see the entire bay as its right at the edge of it.
I had the pasta which was really good, cooked perfectly. The drinks were made really well too. The staff are very friendly and helpful. Thanks for the good time!

Best spot in the bay! Riddim has been around for ages but this revamp changes everything. The food is excellent, try their burgers and the riddim salted chips. The drinks are on point and the service is excellent. The vibe is still relaxed and reminiscent of the old days. Hats of to Doggy and team!

Ridding is just attached to the PEARL Divers Padi Resort in Unawatuna, where I took a three-day Open Water Divers course. During the lunch breaks I took the chance to eat and drink at Riddim. I had a beef burger, the crab burger and the catch of the day as well as various beverages. Each time the food was excellent and the staff was very friendly and caring. I can really recommend the place.
