“Perfect place for a candle lit dinner over looking the beach...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2013 via mobile

So me and my boyfriend were looking to have a romantic dinner on our last night so we decided to head down to Cormaran.... The atmosphere was just perfect with candle lit lamps at each table... On the downside they had a very bad selection of wine. Also they refused to open a new bottle of wine as open bottles were not available when we wanted to order by the glass and they seemed very apprehensive about it even though the beverage menu stated we could orde by the glass.. We waited for. Over 45 minutes for the food... But the far away lights and soft music at the resort didn't get us pondering much... But the wait was simply worth it. Perfect stake and good presentation.service was very average aswell... But the view and atmosphere with the food seemed to have compensate all draw backs...overall nice place...

“Nice setting but a bit of a dud...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2013

Beautiful location and setting but very over-priced and small portions put this firmly in the 'tourist trap' category I'm afraid. Also mixed drinks watery and over-priced. Quite disappointing but the bus loads of German visitors being shuttled through seemed contented so maybe it is more that in the context of so many other great places to eat in Unawatuna this joint falls short. Staff friendly.

“Party Time!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2013

There are two establishments by this name: you need the one on the beach, a few metres from the hotel. We attended a reggae party there and it was brilliant. There was a live band, alcohol and a dance floor made of sand - awesome: waves lapping, torches burning and fireworks exploding.
The guys who run it told me they have a live band there every Saturday night. No entrance fee and reasonably priced drinks. What's not to like?

“Great value breakfast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

I ate hear quite often as it opens for breakfast early. Its a lovely setting and the staff are friendly. The offer sausages and bacon along with eggs and toast etc. They also do a nice pot of coffee. I might be slighty biased towards the breakfast as my partner is a veggie and get her bacon and sausages in return for my tomato (what a swap) if I didn't have that arrangement I would mention that the portions are small. But hey its Sri Lanka and its not a bad stab at a fry up. Really friendly waiting staff who are always happy to fill up your coffee cup

“Rancid ingredients for coaktails”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2013

The Pinacoladas we ordered were made with rancid milk/cream, or whatever it is they use. Filthy toilets used as changing rooms by the local families on the beach. Avoid like the plague.
