Sorry to say but after reading the reviews we were disappointed to the gringo burgers. Lack of flavour, did not find the bbq sauce and caramelized onions. Lot of bun, little beef. Fries were good but small amount for the combo.

If you're looking for a change from the usual stuff on the beach, this is a great place to do so. We had three different types of burgers, and they were all fantastic, as well as the fish and chips (the fish is not fried,...More

We had an awesome evening there enjoying the sunset directly on the beach. The burgers are very tasty and especially the home made fries. Definitely recommend this place to enjoy some great burgers!

We tried #2 (beef) and #8 (fish). Both were very-very tasty! Regarding waiting time, yes it's longer than in a typical fast food restaurant, but just realize that it's not a fast food. Be patient, it's worth waiting.

I didn’t expect such a tasty burger in SriLanka. Thanks also to the waiter Mendis for his good recommendation (Lighthouse Burger). The food is even better than the location direct at the beach.
