What a disappointment, after reading the reviews I was expecting more. Had calamari for starters it was deep fried beyond recognition. Ordered prawn and chicken curry , essentially the same dish, very small portions for both. Left hungry. Won’t come back

This was the only restaurant we returned to twice in Sri Lanka. The seafood is very fresh and exceptional (be sure to go choose your fish from the counter) and the service excellent. Great atmosphere on the beach and very reasonably priced.

We stayed here for a week and were getting tired of the same menus over and over. This was a great change up and the prices weren't too different. Friendly staff!
