Delicious prawn curry enjoyed listening to the ebb & flow of the Indian Ocean on a balmy night with an ice cold Lion beer👍

We had lunch here a couple of times while staying on the beach in front of this place. Its nothing special, but the food is tasty enough. Good service, but terrible 90´s music.

The Lucky Tuna is an incredible place on the beach in Unawantuna, the beach front location is amazing there is a live band on some nights and the food and bar are great. I spent 5 nights in Unawantuna and ate here twice. Highly recommend it.

We came for dinner with friends and had a selection of seafood and fish on the grill. You're seating on the beach, a nice vibrant atmosphere, the food was really nice. We had a great time!!! I really recommend this place for dinner.

Dinned here for dinner as the restaurant had the freshest seafood available on the beach... and even better... it was cooked right in front of you. Pricing is standard compared to other restaurants along the beach. Only downside was the lighting. It was a windy night so the candles were blowing out and there was no light to see the... More
