“Beautiful location and delicious food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is lovely-you can eat overlooking the ocean and away from the hubbub of Unawatuna's main sprawl. The pizzas are really delicious-and of course no one comes to Sri Lanka to eat pizza, but as a change it really does the job. The traditional food is also great quality and the restaurant has a peaceful, romantic atmosphere. Service was excellent too. It is a bit more expensive than some of its contemporaries but you do get what you pay for. Huge portions as well!

“Best seafood we had in Sri Lanka”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2014

Visited this restaurant in 2013 but called it Sun and Sand by mistake. Now resubmitting it under correct name.
"We were recommended to Sun and Sea by our driver and we were not disappointed. The first time we had 2 whole fish and some prawns. Being lazy eaters, the second time we ordered 2 crab and fish already filleted. All were prepared to order by the skillful chef and were delicious. The salads have wonderful dressing, tomato and onion was our favourite. Also a must are the buttered vegetables. The owner Rasta organised transport for us and also arranged for us to have a massage. Rasta also has 3 rooms but we did not see those. The restaurant is located just back from the beach with great views of the ocean. Much amusement is had when the "Sri Lankan Orient Express" train passes. Wonderful food, people and good value for money."read less

“Good food at a stunning location.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 January 2014

We just had a light lunch here but the seafood salads we had were very good at a good price. The restaurant is located right on the beach so we were able to sit under the palm trees to eat and then walk straight onto the beach to sunbathe and swim.
