Definitely best restaurant I've tried in Unawatuna. We had the seafood platter for two and it was the best I've ever had! Service is great to!

This place really got some rave reviews, so we felt inclined to check it out, despite the fact that there were 15 restaurants on the beach that looked more or less the same (both in terms of menu options and location). Noteworthy.. this place doesn't start serving food until 7pm (which is not the case for its neighboring competitors). So... More

Had great butter fish and salmon pasta. Restaurant for dinner opens at 7 pm and tables fill out fast, and you may wait a while for your food, but it's worth it in the end. Great atmosphere with its seating at the beach front.

We booked from the web and did not know what to expect. It was a pleasant surprise. Sitting on the beach gazing at the fabulous bay was truly amazing. The menu was very interesting and the food was simply delicious. The presentation unexpected for a beach restaurant. The staff are well trained and attentive. So the service was excellent. They...

All waiters speak and understand English. We visited many places in Unawatuna - so we liked the service and atmosphere very much - cozy, attentive staff, friendly manners, available and rather quick. As for the meal - we ordered pork, tuna steaks, garlic prawns - all was more or less OK. But we expected better taste for such a price-list.... More

After having many bad or avarage experiences in SL, we felt very lucy to have discovered that place. Tables were clean and food was very delicious (thai green curri, shark, garlic prawns), so we ended up having dinner there two nights in a row. Service was also quick and good. They even had rosmarine to put in a gin and... More

Our last lunch in Sri Lanka and probably the best meal of our 12 day stay. Excellent service and beautiful location. The Thai currys are thoroughly recommended - the best quality prawns we has while in Sri Lanka!

We had dinner there. They mixed up the orders so that we had to wait for the second dish although the first was already delivered. Nevertheless, very nice tuna steak (good size too).
