The vibe that Fernando's create is very laid back and chilled. They seem to be the only ones at this beach to accomplish this, so if it is just drinks that you're looking for, this is the place to be! Food wise, I would definitely...More

Nice spot on the beach and a cool place to relax. Only place which serves beer on the beach. Staff was slow sometimes and there are better places in Uppuveli to eat.

Nice and cozy place to have a drink right at the beach. Food (both chicken and fish) was the worse we had in Sri Lanka: very very dry and spiceless, cold potatoes. Slow service but friendly. Recommended for a drink, absolutely not for food.

This bar and restaurant has nice food and drinks and the beach is very cosy and nice. You can relax here and swim a little. The staff is not very friendly and a bit slow, but we had a nice time here overall.
