Place was really amazing and very clean. food is delicious & the location is superb especially if you take the floating table on the lake. The owner and the waiters are very helpful and sweet and unlike other restaurants in Siri Lanka you can actually order dessert that is not just ice cream. There is cake too

Service: the owner and waiters were soooo welcoming and friendly
Food: very clean, tasty and great value compared to other restuarants (the muffin cake that comes complementary with the coffee and tea is out of this world!!!
location: very cosy quiet great views on the lake and the atmosphere of the restaurant itself is amazing

Wow, this is an amazing restaurant. The location is breathtaking and we dined on the pontoon on the lake. We are a family of 5 with 3 teenagers and the food was gorgeous, we chose lobster, jumbo prawns and red mullet. Every plate was cleared!! It was dark when we arrived which is a shame as we could make out the view over the lake which I imagine is even better in the light. We loved it so much we're considering going back another evening when they can take you out onto the lake for drinks on the pontoon and then return to land for your dinner. If you like seafood, which we all do, you'll love this restaurant.

Bentota Lake was everything we wished for, and more. Amazing lakeside location, fantastic waiter service, brilliant food! A perfect evening sat under the Sri Lankan stars.
We're returning tomorrow for high afternoon tea where we hope to float out into the lake on their floating platform. And we'll be back again next week too before we go home!! Love this place.....highly highly recommended!!
