“Excellent food”
Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

We came twice to eat here we were staying at vivanta Taj but couldn't resist the food at saman villas. Coming from F&B background I know how to rate restaurants and it's truly authentic food with excellent quality . The Srilankan dishes are all delicious and if you want just something to cool down try their home made ice cream and their special Jasmine Tea

“Wonderful restaurant”
Reviewed 2 January 2014

This is probably the best fine dining experience in Bentota and highly recommend. Beautiful setting and really lovely food which was surprisingly reasonable. Service was excellent, a tasty amuse Bouche on arrival, nice breads. The Thai beef salad starter was delicious with very good quality beef and a generous portion. Great Sri Lankan curries. Coconut ice cream is a must!!! One of our best dining experiences in our 3 weeks in Sri Lanka.

“Stunning food stunning views excellent service”
Reviewed 13 August 2013

First holiday in Sri Lanka and really didn't know what to expect. All expectations were exceeded, the staff were attentive without being intrusive, the food was absolutely spot on and the location was perfect. First time to write a review on trip advisor but having left saman villas I want to recommend it to anyone thinking of going there, price also really reasonable for quality of food and wine.
