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

Every thing about this night was right! We didn't stayed at this resort, so it was a bit hard to find in the dark. But once we arrived everything was perfect! It was Boxing night so there was a special menu to choice from. They waiters were more then correct and they have a proper wine-menu to chose from. We... More

We can't really add anything else to what has already been said. But I do have to mention the delicious gift wrapped banana leaf parcel that was placed in front of me, after I had had my tastebuds stirred by delicious pieces of salt and pepper calamari- by far the best I have ever tasted. My parcel contained a selection... More

Wow! I’ve just spotted this one from you and I’m thrilled to bits – many thanks. Understandably, most restaurant reviews end up on the hotel page leaving the restaurant, in my view, unfairly buried.
