About
A beach restaurant and bar, serving fusion Asian and Mediterranean food and hand crafted drinks. The vibe here is chilled but edgy, relaxed but alive. Set on the south coast beach of Weligama, Sea salt society is a refreshing presentation of tropical design finished with a modern, present day edge. The contemporary furnishings dusted with bright pink and deep blue accents and patterned tiles create a bright and breezy space. The exclusivity it has along the beach is exciting, sexy and fun. The vibe here is chilled but edgy, relaxed but alive. Over looking the beach beds and onto the shimmering aquamarine waters beyond, the open air restaurant and bar has a feet-in-the-sand vibe. A fusion Asian and Mediterranean-influenced menu with bold Sri lankan flavors offers perfectly executed crowd- pleasers, such as beach bites and tapas, to heartier dishes such as grilled lobster and crab curry, all cooked up with the freshest of ingredients sourced as locally as possible. The bar brings.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We came as a group for dinner and had a wonderful evening. The setting is beautiful, the tacos and the peri peri chicken was lovely and the staff extremely attentive. Despite the economic climate, all but a couple of items were available on the menu and the prices were so reasonable. Will definitely be back

Amazing and welcoming place with probably the best cocktails in Sri Lanka! Ideal service, high quality food and lovely atmosphere. We ordered island prawns and they made a spicy and a mild portion upon request. Highly recommended for a dinner with ocean view. Special thanks to Sammera and Oshan for a warm welcome!

It’s a lovely spot and the service was good, but the food was very mediocre. Nothing great. I ordered the fish and chips and it wasn’t even seasoned before frying. There was no tartare sauce to go with it but they served a sauce saying it’s the chef’s secret sauce but it was just thousand island dressing! The pasta my daughter ordered was not tasty at all….they really have to up their game if they need to continue being in the restaurant business.

Hello Meander52722176189, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Sea Salt. We truly value your feedback as it helps us to improve and grow. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the location and found our service to be good. However, I'm disheartened to learn that our food didn't meet your expectations. Providing delicious and memorable meals is at the core of what we strive for, and it seems we missed the mark during your visit. Regarding the fish and chips, I apologize if it wasn't seasoned to your liking. We aim for a balance of flavors that pleases a wide range of palates, but it's clear we fell short in your case. As for the sauce, while our chef likes to put a unique spin on traditional sauces, it’s important that it also meets our guests’ tastes and expectations. I will certainly discuss this with our kitchen team to ensure we’re hitting the right notes with our flavors. The feedback on your daughter’s pasta is also taken very seriously. We will review this dish with our culinary team to see where improvements can be made. It's crucial for us that every dish we serve is tasty and satisfying. We're committed to excellence in all areas of our restaurant, and your comments are instrumental in helping us enhance our offerings. I hope you’ll consider dining with us again in the future, so we can have the opportunity to provide you with a much better experience. Warm regards and a commitment to culinary improvement, Robert

Came for lunch after a surf. The food was delicious (try the smoothie bowl) and the service was even better. Ismael, the manager, even spotted that I had a cut on my foot from surfing and offered me a plaster. So kind and so friendly.

Staying at the Marriott next door, we ventured here for variety. 5 min walk. Very pleasant spot with 4 different restaurants in an open air food court. Clean and breezy with some welcome shade. We spent 13000 rupee for a meal for 2 adults and 1 child for lunch. Reasonable especially considering the food quality and the excellent service (thanks Tesha). We has a Prawn Curry, delicate and not too spicy. A Falafel Wrap, fresh tasting and good portion and side greens. The nachos were not my favorite as they serve them with pita chips and not corn chips as they do in the States. It tasted fine but is not like home. Will return.

We read the great reviews and decided to give this a shot. We were not disappointed. It’s located in a ‘fun zone’ that has a number of restaurants, a bar, a pool and a beach. We ordered the seafood platter, which was just right - succulent crabs and prawns, sweet fish and some cuttlefish with yumm garlic aioli. I’d rate it highly for the freshness of the produce and the deft cooking.

Sea Salt City in Weligama offers the ideal beachside location with an inspiring atmosphere, friendly service, and a diverse menu featuring choices from Italian, classic, and other cuisines. A must-try experience for those seeking diversity and seaside relaxation. I enjoyed it. Try it for yourself sometime."

We were looking for a family friendly spot for dinner, with a varied menu for adults and kids. Sea Salt Society and Sanju hit the spot! The food was as hot and tasty, quick to be delivered and the cocktails were dreamy. We will be back!

Food and ambience were very good. Our server’s name was Malith. He was very friendly and recommended good food options.The only thing the restaurant can improve is make the curry portion sizes a little bigger. One of the best catch of the day fish we had in Sri Lanka.

Had our lunch in Sea Salt Society recently. There is was lots of choice including burgers, all day breakfast, curries and smoothie bowls (which are delicious). The staff are so lovely and friendly, especially Ismail the manager who looked after us! It’s a vibe!

Sea Salt Society has a delicious, varied menu with some things you’re not gonna find anywhere else in the area. The staff is delightful and quite kind. The food is great, the music’s nice, and the view is lovely. The nachos are quite good, which can be hard to come by in South Asia, and the butter chicken was delicious. Don’t forget to grab a Lion beer from the nearby bar to round out the experience!

Without exaggerating, one of my best restaurants in the world and definitely best restaurant in Sri Lanka. My gf in japanese and she said that the Tuna tatakki is one of the best she ever had. We extended our stay in weligama so we can eat more and try more items in Sea Salt Society. If you ever visited weligama, don’t waste you time looking for a good restaurant, try Sea Salt Society and you will spend all your vacation eating here… it’s not an advertisement, that’s the truth

People, food, location, presentation of the meal, atmosphere…. Everything is perfect. Try Tuna tataki, it’s the best. We literally extended our vacation because of this restaurant, and wanted to try Tuna tataki again. If you’re in Weligama, it’s worth to come. They can make meals non-spicy as well.
