Description: Welcome to Black & White restaurant. The best culinary experience of Unawatuna beach. Famous for outstanding food and great ambiance in a charming restaurant. Perfect dining experience on the beach with a usual casual flair. We are proud to serve only the freshest food. Our seafood always a fresh catch of the day, fruits and vegetables come from local markets, we prepare our food to reflect the freshness and original taste with special attention to each and every dish. Our menu offers a selection of fresh seafood, international cuisine, and Sri Lankan traditional rice and curry which are all prepared & cooked to very high standard by our chefs. Our kitchen is open 7.30 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. and our bar is open until our last customer leaves. We are closed during the full moon.

“Great Place for seafood”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Located right on the beach past the UBR on Unawatuna Bay. Most of the tables are set up on the sand with the ocean just a few metres away. Was also a full moon that night which added to the ambience.

Drinks served quickly and our mixed party of adults and young children had very differing demands of what we wanted to eat. Chices were mostly for sea food platters or jumbo prawns. The childrens foosd was served well in advance of the adults and they were happily fed and quiet before our very well prepared sea food arrived. Salads were imaginative and different from other places on the beach and the dressing served separatley. A real rarity on the beach.

Staff are friendly and attentive but never intrusive.

The devilled chicken was not up to standard but overall everyone was more than happy.

Well run and fresh food.

Toilets could easily be kept cleaner and the staff accomodation nearby should have the doors closed, not exactly 5 star. Kitchen looked clean, well laid out and open to public view.

“Tastiest food in Unawatuna”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

You would not think from the outlook of this little place how exceptionally good the food is! We stayed in the guesthouse connected to the restaurant for 6 nights. First we tried out other "fancier looking" restaurants, but then stuck to this one, as the food overrated the others. Breakfast is OK, dinners are excellent. Try the fried rice, deviled, prawns and most of all the Sri Lankan curry set, all of them remarkable. Highly recommended even if you don't stay in the guesthouse!

“Best in Unawatuna”
Reviewed 27 January 2013

Excellent food, excellent staff, brilliant location right on the beach, what more could 1 ask for. Black & White is for me the most relaxed place on Unawatuna beach to have a meal and watch some amazing sunsets. the food is of a very high standard at very good prices. A varied menu which caters for all tastes. BBQs and special meals can be arranged on request.
