Keep nets for the crab & lobster, choose your own, it doesn't get any fresher than that!! Cooked to perfection, messy, even the restaurant has a wash hand basin in the corner! So good I fact we skipped breakfast the next day and walked along the beach and had lunch there! Fresh tuna, rare, herbs rosemary, sage & parsley added last minute! Fresh, buttery local avocado. This was anchor butter creamy colored with a greener than lime green outside, simple vinaigrette, fries, just sublime! Simple, simple, simple, with fresh x 20! When someone gets it right, praise is due ,

I went for dinner here upon a recommendation of a friend who had visited Bentota before. They weren't wrong!!! Whilst this is not the cheapest restaurant by Sri Lankan standards, the seafood is as fresh as it possibly can be & the chef is clearly quite talented, allowing the seafood to speak for itself.

very good food, the fresh sri lankan crab curry was very amazing and grilled jumbo prawns were very good. Bit pricey though

As fish restaurants go, I'd choose this one over Malli's for taste. Service was good and we enjoyed our evening. Would go back.

Highly recommended by everyone but the food was below average.... low season and the alleged "fresh catch of the day" tasted distinctly off
