You get basic food without much taste at a fair prize. OK for lunch but I would go another place for dinner.

The food was incredible salty, quite unpleasant at times. Chocolate milkshake was very poor, it was chocolate water. Didn't feel great after the meal. Wasn't cheap either really in comparison to other places on the beach. Nice location, but don't go for the food.

We ordered "grilled calamari". This came enveloped in a dreadful tomato sauce, which very much reminded me of the stuff you get with canned spaghetti. They also serve pasta here, so i probably was. My girlfriend chipped her tooth on grit within said calamari. We would have been happy had the restaurant agreed to take it off the bill. Alas,... More

We came here for a quick drink and stayed for 2 hours. The staff are friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere is excellent being right on the beach. We ended up eating a late breakfast which was very good. We had the the Sri Lankan omelette, vegetable soup and some chips and all were good. The freshly made pineapple juice... More

You won't find friendlier staff in a restaurant in Hikkaduwa than at Sunset Coffee Bar. The food is very good, especially the curries and lunch noodles/rice. The restaurant is also just only one step from the sea so you can easily hop in when you have eaten. Come here a little before sunset and you will have a dinner to... More

It's a nice and cosy place, the staff is nice and good. But the food is really too basic! My friends burger was so dry that she wasn't sure it was real meat. The curry tasted really sandy as well, which was a big surprise for me because I really thought every Sri Lankan knows how to make a decent... More
