We booked Buckingham Place for dinner during our one week stay nearby. It was an excellent choice in every way. The staff were very friendly when we arrived and we were shown to the bar for one of the best cocktails I have had! An Arrak..something! Yummy! On to dinner...starting with the juiciest butterfly prawn starter which was mouthwatering...so much... More
This newly opened building is part of Buckingham Place. It offers fresh seafood amongst other local dishes. No microwave here it is all freshly cooked. I can recommend the fresh tuna and the shrimps
HEAPED thanks again! Your generous, timely support for the hotels new restaurant is welcome indeed. With Oceanfront listed as a separate entity (though part of Buckingham Place) it’s largely overlooked in terms of reviews - in contrast to the hotel that is. The photos are really great, both of you are great, and we can’t wait to see you back... More
...try it, you simply won't be disappointed! the menu changes every day so its worth checking out what's on that day...if you get a chance to try the pescatarian pouch...doesn't sound that exciting but it's fabulous! the setting is fabulous as well!
Wow again… Immediately after posting my reply to your perfect hotel review I spotted this one! There’s little more I can add other than to say, many thanks for this extra thumbs up, it’s just what we need to get Oceanfront off the ground, I’m sure it’ll inspire others to follow in your footsteps. You humble us with praise so... More
Firstly, I would like to point out that this is a review of our evening dining whilst here and not our breakfast, (which we really enjoyed). Sadly, overall, we were disappointed by our evening dining here. Each night there were 3 main course options each priced between 2,500 and 3,000 rupees. On the menu there is not a vegetarian option,... More
I’m truly sad to read of your dining disappointment, something I blame primarily on our inability to communicate key messages at times and, a possible mix up with your order? Our Thali, which rather than served on a small side plate comes on a deep, 12” x 6” platter, is a dish so overwhelmingly popular it has survived 5 seasons,... More
Out of 3 nights in Rekawa/Tangalle area, we went twice to have dinner here. Very nice venue, professional staff. We particularly liked the seared tuna (appetizer), the curry and the sri lankan curry (booked one day in advance). Absolutly delicious !
Please keep on coming… A full marks ‘foodie’ review (I read several you’ve written) is especially pleasing to read, as I’m acutely aware its real purpose to reassure (or otherwise) fellow travellers following in your footsteps. Your generous appreciation for Oceanfront @ Buckingham Place will doubtless bring others to our gates which means many more might have a good time... More
Well, well, well! As if it couldn't get any better @ Buckingham Place, wham, Oceanfront opens up and shows us how it should be done! This is the original restaurant SUPERSIZED! And the most wonderful thing is that service and quality haven't suffered as a result, as can often be the case when one expands their facility. I visited here... More
Wow factor review! We really couldn’t want for more, than happy returning diners whom then follow up with reviews from the heart – your review has a ‘wow factor’ all of its own! Could I perhaps persuade you to write our PR? When a guest revisits us, whether to stay in the hotel or simply to dine, it’s reassuring, special... More
Another visit to Buckingham Place and what a change since the last time; Nick and his team have really excelled themselves. A new infinity pool and restaurant have been added since our last visit and …. wow, wow, wow! Unfortunately we only visited for dinner so missed seeing the view from the pool as it was full dark; looking at... More
Thank you for coming back… My biggest concern when opening the new restaurant was, would our regular guests love it as much as the old one? Thank you - your unequivocal ‘thumbs up’ underscores that I really needn’t have worried! And so far I’m relieved to say, everyone seems happy with Oceanfront, to the extent it may well become a...

We were staying at a nearby hotel along the beach towards Tangalle town. We wanted to come to rekawa beach and watch the sunset and then eat before watching the turtles come ashore. Giving this place 5 stars does not do it justice! The food was amazing and the dishes we ate were beautifully presented. It will be a meal... More
Thank you… For 6 years and notably very recently - since our new restaurant opened, we’ve been bowled over by kind praise and magnificent support from our house guests and diners. An industry novice in 2010 I hadn’t heard of Trip Advisor let alone imagined how influential it might one day be. I know now of course and never take... More
We spent a fabulous week at Buckingham Place, the hotel attached to Oceanfront Restaurant and which I'll review separately). First the setting - beautiful, classy, openfronted, overlooking the huge infinity pool. Breakfast is served at ANY time, no matter how long you choose to lie in! No boring dried out buffets here - everything is freshly prepared to order, beautifully... More
Thank you, all of you… Each Christmas/New Year season brings us too few hours with too much to squeeze in; so much so it’s all we can do sometimes to feed and look after everyone properly before waving them off with fond memories and a great sun tan! Happily though, and your fabulous review bears testament to this, our guests... More
