We sat outside in the afternoon for a few drinks which was lovely. Sadly we were there on a Tuesday I think which is their music night, from about 5pm until we left we had to endure the moronic audio guy 'sound checking' this meant that every 15 seconds he shouted 'check check 123' into the mic after the 100th...

The restaurant is placed right there at the beach, which makes it very charming. Staff is very friendly and likes to talk. The rooms are not recommendable/ below average.

Mamas is a cozy and relaxed place! Perfect for lunch or just a drink when you spend the day at the beach! And the curry is really tasty!

We went to Mamas because of the beautiful views you get from their restaurant. It's lovely to sit outside as the sun is setting and listen to the waves - but that's the only good thing about this place. 2 of the things I tried to order I was told couldn't be made and the vegetarian options are pretty limited...

Stopped at mama's for a late lunch. Saw a few dodgy reviews on TA so was a bit dubious. Service was good enough. I got my drinks and food pretty quickly. The menu is pretty good serving a variety of different dishes. The food was decent. Grilled octopus (cooked well) with chips and salad. But the octopus had been covered... More

An incredible view during sunset, but by far the worst service we experienced in hikkaduwa during our stay. The service was in all aspects slow; getting a menu, ordering, waiting for drinks and paying. The drinks however were average.

We stop at mama's restaurant for an afternoon lunch. The menu was very small and the price was way too much for what we got. The lobster and the fish was so sandy it roll in our mouth they didn't wash their fish and seafood well enough. The view of the beach was really nice but overall the dinning experience... More

Avoid. We paid 11k rupees for soup that was riddled with shell, shell fish that was a futile struggle for extracting a few meagre scraps of meat and tea that was crawling with ants. Disgusting, revolting and utter rubbish.
