Description: We found this listed in Lonely Planet and decided to check it out as we were desperate for good food options in Tangalle. It was a wonderful discovery, but its quite hard to find in the dark, so going there for dinner the first time was probably not a great idea! We liked it so much that we returned the next day for lunch too. Location & ambiance are great. Food was good value for money & it has a lovely relaxed atmosphere that is great for chillin. Would probably book their cabanas for a nice beach holiday next time. Great place!

When you go over the bridge you enter a little paradise. Under the palmtrees you find a really nice bar where you can eat fresh and good food en drink nice coctails. The ocean is beatifull, you really feel like the bounty beaches!

We found the restaurant after a long walk on the beach and were really excited to eat there as the menu seemed really nice and the set up as beautiful. The food was pretty expensive for the quality of the dish. We ordered some jumbo prawns and some calamary. Both dishes were desappointing! Don't go eat there, there are many cheapper restaurants that are way better than this one.

Only budget or time may tear you away from this place. Agree with some comments about mismanagement of bookings, perhaps down to young staffing, but they made up for it with their friendly and very helpful manner. Idyllic settings, cabbanas inkeeping with surroundings, good food, great natural rock pool that provides, some, shelter from the might of the Indian ocean. A night stroll along the deserted beaches may even gift you with the sight of a green turtle laying eggs...

Very nicely situated in a quiet part of the long beach just next to the beach. Beautiful cabanas, relaxing lazy atmosphere with a nice restaurant and hammocks. The sea is dangerous but still you can try your luck with the heavy waves if you're adventurous. We liked it a lot and having stayed in Ganesh gardens as well we definitely preferred Mangrove for it's non pretentious, chilled out, attention to details and non-pushy staff.

Note I have had to select a Tripadvisor visit date of 2012, but our attempted visit was 2011 - I arranged bookings over the internet and confirmed a 2 night stay at one of the chalets here.

Arrive in SL and contacted them to confirm, to be advised they did not have any places. Nice and griefy start to the hols. Casa Colombo, our initial night's stay also chose to follow the same level of customer service.

I sincerely hope both organisations have pulled their socks up on this kind of business management.
