“Great seafood and nice beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2014

The restaurant and all place with a garden is very nice! Clean toilets!
Staff was friendly.
Tuna salad was great, the same MiX juice - very good!
I couldn't see the rooms, they were all occupied.
Nice place very close to the beach.
Good job, Hug Inn.
If i come again to Hikkaduwa i'll do a reservation for the room in advance.

“Great seafood and great value”

Had the best fish meal in hikkaduwa at this restaurant and prices are competitive. They also serve a great tuna salad if you are after something lighter. Ate here several times. Very clean and friendly service.

“Delicious, nutricious and every other word that ends with "icious"!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 January 2014

The restaurant is lovely! Great food served everyday with care and high prestine consideration towards the customers. It wasn't because I was starving that the food tasted lovely! It's because it actually is awesome! I wasn't hungry on my last day there and it still felt like the first time! 5 stars!
My kindest regards and have a saucy time!

“Terrible food, great location!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 December 2013 via mobile

This was by far the worst food we had during our 2 week stay in Sri Lanka. Only went to this place because of what I read on Tripadvisor, but I'm thinking there must have been some mistake as the food was awful. Burger for the kids looked great, but tasted like road-kill (hope it wasn't, still not sure!), tuna was untouchable, pancake roll with beef was undescribably bad and the bruscheta was covered with chopped onions. All this terrible food in sucha a beautiful beach location and with such friendly staff. This place is everything you'd expect a beach hut restaurant to be, simply fantastic (albeit they don't serve booze so for a cold beer step next door!), but make sure you stick with the nice fruit cocktails and stay away from the food...
