We stayed at the Saman Villa for a glorious 11 days and ate in the restaurant everyone of the those days! The food was some of the most delicious that we've experienced in Sri Lanka and we live here part of every year. I need...gluten free food and was so happy that the restaurant could accommodate thoughtfully with so many options. I enjoyed the tasty GF bread daily and also special items that they prepared just for me. We tried almost everything on the menu and can I happily recommend you do the same. We plan to return regularly. One of the truly incredible aspects of the restaurant experience is the service. Kristhana and team were fantastic. So kind, thoughtful and attentive. Like a dream. I felt like a Queen everyday. If you have a choice while in Sri Lanka, choose Saman Villa and the restaurant. You won't be disappointed.More

We had wonderful meals dining at Saman Villas - the food was fresh, beautifully tasty - particularly my favourite - rice and curry! The menu is varied and the standard of the presentation was excellent! We had a magical meal over the ocean - just...the two of us - extremely romantic and delicious - what more could we ask for! The service was impeccable and Mr Krishantha, the restaurant manager, and his team were excellent - we look forward to returning.More

We had a fantastic experience dining at Saman Villas. Fresh, interesting, varied menu. Wonderful staff who anticipated our every need - with special mention to the wonderful Dulara, Thilani, Iresha & Sumith who provided great service, were friendly and remembered our preferences. Particular favourites were...the Tuna Ceviche & Crab starter; Red Snapper, Prawn Curry and Lobster mains; and amazing Coconut pudding (which we had every night!). Thank you!More

This place was great! Good food, pleasant ambience and good service! Reasonable size menu 5 stars! My only criticism would be we found it a little hard to find, a few signs would really help!

Brilliant food, exceptional service, relaxing environment. The amusè bouche, palette cleanser and complimentary dessert were really nice touches - they will do everything they can to make you feel welcome and spoilt. I ordered a prawn curry which came with all sorts of delicious little...dishes, my sister had red snapper fillet which looked brilliant and the fish was very fresh. Would highly recommend a visit during your stay in Bentota. Only suggestion is to make it easier to find with signs on the road!!More

Fabulous food with great service and attention to detail. Lots of extras that we didn’t order including an amazing cake at the end. (We were so full but managed to squeeze it in!) My chicken curry was the most amazing so far since we’ve been...in Sri Lanka and there was sooooo much food. My only criticism would be that we had trouble finding it as there wasn’t really a proper sign from the road and we struggled to understand where it was.More

Really good service and yummy food with a relaxing ambience, they even brought out a free desert at the end with ‘we will miss you’ piped in chocolate!
