We ordered the lobster tiemedoo (thermidor?). Pretty disappointing for a restaurant dedicated to lobster. Ordered the curry and rice as well. 3 of the curries served had the same base gravy.

It was really a memorable stay with the delicious sea food soup and the very spacious and comfortable large bed room very close to the beach

Visited here with my 2 children, ordered curry for me and son and pasta for little one. Curry was awesome and only cost 650 LKR for so much food. The pasta bolognese was served with sliced cheese on top and was not good. The service was also a little slow when asked for the bill which was not good when... More

Without thinking we ordered pasta here. It's was real survival food which came with a slice of Kraft Singles cheese melted on top. I wouldn't rate this place for a second visit but maybe the seafood is the key. (As the name suggests!)

Was always busy, not just with tourists but locals alike. Prices much the same as anywhere else we'd been, not overly expensive but mid range. Large airy restaurant upstairs with... More

This place was recommended to us, so we went on our first day in hikkaduwa. Had jumbo prawns and some calamari dish. Prawns were anything but fresh and came with some tasteless sauce. Calamari es were ok but the 'deviled' variant is served with some sort of ketchup with chili. The fries were overcooked to a state were they were... More
