We enjoyed a cold (giant) Lion beer looking out at the ocean from Ice Bear's very picturesque, garden-like setting. A nice spot to while away the heat of the afternoon.

The location of this restaurant/ Guest House is fantastic. In a secluded walled garden fronting the beach, you can seat at the lovely rustic tables and chairs and while away the hours. I visited the Ice Bear three times, once for an evening drink with...More

We only went here a couple of times for drinks in the garden but it was an intriguing place and we would have been happy to stay there. It is Swiss owned and has good ethics

They have quite good meal options at this guesthouse restaurant, including typically Swiss meals (Roesti and Muesli) as well as coconut juice from their trees in the garden. Don't offer any local food options which is a pity as all the chefs in the kitchen...More

The food is delicious and the waiters are super friendly. Tons of fresh fruit and plenty of variety. Great filter coffee. Dining is al fresco and the sea breeze is nice. Both European and Sri Lankan choices on the menu.

When we lunched here it wasn't busy, apparently only one server and one cook. The server forgot my wife's order, had to be asked when mine arrived alone. You can eat better in many other places for less.
