We choose this place because it's on beach while we are staying in heritance hotel. We ordered seafood, salad, chips and soup. In the midnight me, my husband and my two kids all had stomach and vomiting. Because of the food we had in this...restaurant for the dinner. Inside the restaurant also not clean and too slow service. Not recommended this restaurant to anyone.More

My wife is a massive sea food lover so a visit here was a must while we stayed at the Riu just down the beach Not being a seafood lover myself I can only say my wife absolutely loved her seafood platter. It was a...massive plate with a whole crab lobster a fish (not sure what it was but lovely she said) squid prawns. I had grilled chicken which was also lovely. It was a great shame that we were the only customers in there along with the restaurants family and the children ran around screaming. They then gave them mobile devices to shut them up so we had children's TV blaring out. I wouldn't go back. Apart from that a lovely meal for under £20.00 you would pay at least £25-£30 for that seafood platter alone in the UKMore

Just enjoyed a delicious meal at Sunshine Restaurant. Huge portions and very reasonably priced. Highly recommend Calamari Curry and the Sea Food fried rice. Attentive, friendly service too!

The restaurant has the main dining hall by the road and some tables on the beach. We sat down for lunch by the tables on the beach and waited about 10 min but no one came to take the order so we left. We tried...the place again in the evening. The menu is not very local food but a lot of Western dishes mainly meat and fish, only two vegetarian choices which were not that great. Too pricey for the quality they serve. We ordered Aloe vera fresh juice but it was not fresh at all, the drink was very sugary and nothing like aloe vera. We tried to order avocado juice but theh didn't have it. We then got king coconut but was not very good taste. The restaurant next door is much more authentic and cheaper.More

Had lunch here while stopping at the Hertitance Ahungalla-It is just a collection of tables on the beach under a thatched roof, separate from the adjacent White Villa Resort . I had tiger prawns with fries, my partner had the fish curry, both excellent. I...finished up with ice cream and fruit, highly recommended!More

Staying at the Heritance hotel we met Siri on the beach and he showed us his restaurant. It looked very promising so we went back for lunch. Come out of the hotel onto the beach and just turn right. The chef showed us what was...fresh in today and we had barracuda and parawa fish. Both were delicious and beautifully cooked. ( and the fruit juices were lovely too - freshly made). Note that fish is priced by weight - the price is given per 100g and the chef told us how big the fish was to the nearest 100 - ours were both 400g fish before cooking and were worth every gram. Everything is freshly prepared - this isn't fast food but a meal to enjoy. I wish we could have gone again but had no more time here.More

We stayed at the heritance hotel, but ate at the sunshine restaurant every lunch and dinner. Siri was an amazing man, he looked after us, took us to his home to meet his family, showed us his village. The food at this restaurant was out...of this world, the seafood platter was sooo good!! Everything was lovely, we went out of season and it didn’t matter what we asked for, if they didn’t have it, they went and got it!! Truly recommend a visit!! Also look up tino villas and tours, his rooms were lovely and clean, as was the whole house!! And very reasonably priced.More

Had barracuda caught that day with fresh salad, absolutely delicious. One fish was enough for 2. Friends had red snappers, again enough for 2.

My wife and I stayed at the heritance hotel ahungalla for three weeks. We ate at this restaurant almost every day. Tables on the beach with the sound of the waves and beautiful view. Food is excellent and priced very well. Berty and his team...are friendly and polite in every way. Say hi to Milan and Berty from us. Leroy and kerstin. Use Berty to organise your tours as well. Just a 5 min walk along the beach from the heritance hotel. Sea food platter at the hotel $90. At the restaurant $20. Berty and his family arganised my birthday party on the beach as well. Cake fire works and a gift. Lovely family run restaurant.More
