“Not a great experience”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

You could be fooled into thinking your on for a great night here as the place is busy in high season and atmosphere good . Alarm bells should ring when you have to pay for your food in advance though and the reason for this is because they don't deliever quality & value for high prices charged . The fish looks great on the display table but when served it was overcooked. The advertized " salad " was an unrefrigerated warm salad ( think tablespoon on size portion per person ) and the side plate size of chips which was supposed to feed 8 of us was a joke . When we complained we got a vacant look from the boss and nothing else .
Basically , dont bother with this place ....move on to Kingfisher wher food is excellent , staff are friendly and portions fill you up .

“Mishandled tuna”
Reviewed 17 March 2014

Ordered fresh tuna. In came a slice of over-cooked tuna with quite a lot of bones in, close to totally ruined. And almost tasteless.

“Good fish & nice atmosphere”
Reviewed 9 March 2014 via mobile

We were there for dinner (after we walked away from the flamingo because for us the music was too loud/not nice).
They have a really beautiful setting directly on the beach on a raised platform - but you can't sit in the very front or you will get wet.
We had grilled fish and prawns - both we could choose by our self (they have the fish and seafood laid out (in ice)).
Both dishes were very good and the service very friendly.
The milkshake which we had for desert was quite big and also very good. All in all a full recommondation if you want to eat in Unawatuna!
