“Great Seafood BBQ”
Reviewed 13 March 2013

If you walk a little on the beach you will be probably meet a tiny little man wearing a chef's hat who will invites you to his bbq feast! The difference with all the others "tormentors" you will for sure meet on the beach is that he is very very friendly and nice and will not try to force you to sit at his restaurant.

The other peculiar thing is that around 6:30 p.m. he will have a long table FULL of seafood (Lobsters, crabs, jumbo prawns and many different fishes) where you can choose whatever you like.

We had a jumbo prawn the size of a big lobster and a grilled fish. All that comes with fries, salad or rice. It's not that cheap compared to other places (we spent about 2.000 rupies) but chef's special spicy sauce makes the difference!

“Bad food”
Reviewed 8 February 2013 via mobile

Nicely located on the beach, but they shouldn't serve food. My rice was ok, but my wife's soup was horrible. Only order a nice drinl, then you're ok in this place.

“Terrrible Food”
Reviewed 17 November 2012

A group of us ate here a few weeks ago, and unfortunately have to say this was the worst meal we had in Sri Lanka. Between 6 of us we ordered a selection of fish, meat and vegetarian curries, all of which were tasteless and certainly not worth the hour and an half we had to wait for them despite the fact that the restaurant wasn't very busy. There are many excellent restaurants in Unawatuna so do yourself a favour, don't choose this one!

“Terrible "grilled" fish”
Reviewed 21 August 2012

O.k., how to say this politely... The service was o.k., drinks were o.k., but we had the grilled fish (overpriced - but this is probably the problem of whole Unawatuna) which I doubt was grilled. I could not separate the meet from the bones so the fish was good only for a dog. Maybe it was an exception but we were really not satisfied.

“Delicious food great service and wonderful view”
Reviewed 5 July 2012

We ate here a couple of nights ago and loved it. We grabbed a table right on the sand and ordered a tonne of food and drinks. The waiter was very attentive and the food came out pretty quick! Had entrees main and dessert and all was delicious. Overall everything was great and would recommend the crumbed calamari for an entree.
