Being a girl who loves the beach I immediately loved the location and ambience of the restaurant.

Being located on the beach next to the Mount Lavinia Hotel, this is a very popular restaurant for drinks at sundown. The food is fresh and beautifully cooked. You choose your fish and way of being cooked - sit back and wait for amazingly delicious food to be delivered.

As Morpheus predicted about Neo in the Matrix - "He's the one" - all seafood lovers should be convinced.. this is the one. I was staying at Mt Lavinia Hotel and decided to walk down the beach via its steps past 'The Hut' and stumbled upon a beautiful stretch of beach with the Seafood Cove sitting in isolation with tables,...

After being on a budget for 20 days we decided to treat ourselves to drinks and a nice fish dinner on the beach. After selecting my red snapper and seeing it filleted before my eyes I asked that it be grilled accompanied with vegetables and potatoes.

Unbeatable setting. Fresh seafood. Possible to sit under a roof or directly on the beach. Attentive staff, though a bit untrained at times.
