The food. The view. The service. Everything was top-notch!

We stopped in on out way from Mirissa to the airport, for lunch, and it was superb.

If you can get there before (or after) lunch to sit at the table on the lake, it's an amazing treat.

We had the Sri-Lankan style prawns and garlic butter fish, both meals were spectacular. We saw the recommendation on TripAdvisor and weren't let down.

A must-visit when you're in the area.

What a beautiful place by the lake..appropriate time to visit is during dusk when the colours of the setting sun make the surrounding very picturesque..
Ordered chilli garlic tossed prawns with herbed rice..JUMBO prawns..succulent..burst of flavours in the mouth..
It seems the owner has done up the place very passionately..it reflects in the food and the overall ambience..amazing staff..ever smiling and inviting to the core..
was pleasantly surprised to get two complimentary helpings of cashewnut honey vanilla ice-cream at the end of the meal..fantastic flavours again..pure bliss!
MUST VISIT..have atleast one meal here if visiting Bentota..

We had an excellent dinner here. If you book the table ask the romantic pavillion by the lake. The smile of the personnel is so welcoming, charming and natural. We had shrimps and fish, both where well prepare and not over cooked, which is so often problem in Asia. White wine was excellent and decent priced. Really excellent experience.

Tuk tuk drivers are saying its far away, but it takes only 7-10 minutes from Bentota.
As we had such a nice dinner we desided to return for next day for curry. It was the best curry our 2 weeks tour, it's fresh cooked. it's an authentic mom/mama cooking of the wife of the owner.

This is truely the best restaurant in Bentota, we checked most of them.

Not much food to choose from on the menu but the prawns we had were the tastiest prawns we have ever eaten. Only two members of staff and so very friendly. The food was served to us quicker here than other restaurants where they had more staff.

Its my second review, everytime im in my home country I go to Betota just to eat at this place. This time I had to write again simply because the chef has out done himself again. We get all sorts of seafood here in Hong Kong and the locals love freshness, but this right here is hands down the best western style seafood meal you will have

The fish steak was cooked to perfection, fluffy and full of flavour. The meal was good we had 4 main courses to share between 2. All of it was perfect.

Its the care he takes with each dish, everything was perfection, even the carrots were done perfectly

He should be on TV, on radio on anything to show the world how to cook like him. Truly a talented maestro of the seafood

The only bad thing I have to say is that his food is so good it makes the 2nd place look so average in comparison and I had both one after the other
