When the locals eat somewhere you know that it's going to be good and One Love did not disappoint. I ate here several times, never had the same dish twice and was never disappointed. The fresh fish dishes are fabulous and the One Love Past is incredible. Can't wait to go back this year.

We walked along the beach looking for somewhere that provided local food rather than these large flash places that seem to think all people want is over priced pasta and pizza.

Great Sri Lankan curry and rice but they also offer fresh seafood. Good service and a lovely atmosphere right on the beach!

The curry was so bad that I couldn't eat it, the woman who cooks doesn't speak a good English, I hate the smell of the food and I would never go there again I prefer to starve myself to death before I eat there food.

The place makes amazing passion fruit mohito...you have to try. Price is reasonable. We didn't eat here so don't know about the food but the people here are really friendly. Lassa the surf guru will entertain you if you're wanting a conversation. Suddu makes the best mohito ever. Thanks guys

I don't know how these restaurants that sit in a row one after the other on the beach can survive, especially when they are so bland. I had the seafood curry, my girlfriend had the prawn curry. It was really nothing special. As with so many reviews on Trip Advidor, this place is way over rated. I can't even manage... More

Curries are a bit bland and cold, the prices are fairly cheap but you need a few dishes to fill you up so it adds up being more. Wouldn't come again but it wasn't the worst meal in my life.

We were hoping that this place would live up to its recent reviews however we were the only customers when nearby restaurants were buzzing which should have set the alarm bells ringing. No cocktails as no Barman and our vodka cokes had no ice and the cokes weren't cold. Not being deterred we ordered the famous rice dish 2 curries... More
