“Nice experience...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Located directly by the lake, apart from the hectic main streets, the restaurant has a calming and romantic atmosphere. The facilities are all new and modern, and the surrounding garden is neat and nicely arranged. The service was very friendly and attentive. There is a great variety of different dishes on the menu, ranging from Sri Lankan, Indian and Chinese to western inspired dishes. The food was tasty, not too spicy and reasonably priced!
Overall absolutely recommendable!!!

“superb location & service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 August 2014

Sri Lanka's finest restaurant now has the fit-out to match its ambitious nature. There's a heightened sense of occasion in the new-look dining, and repeat-diners might notice dinner is now served with added restraint.
Sure, pairing Fruit Salad with Red STRAWBERRIES & Kivi Fruit is typical of modern sensibilities, & the straighter-shooting likes of exemplary customer Service suggest a confident in their ability. Especially the floating table on the lake with loved the chicken tikka masala & the naan bread. This is just one example of a sustained commitment to advancing Sri Lankan fare. What can I say! Wow! From the outset My Wife & I were extremely impressed by the atmosphere and friendliness of the wait staff.
I believe Bentota Lake is leading the way in dining in Bentota, Sri Lanka.

“The best romantic cafe & restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 31 July 2014 via mobile

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
