“Service too allow...”
Reviewed 30 March 2013 via mobile

I know beach shackd should be laid back and its okay to have to wait for your food while you drown a few beers. But this place takes it to a while new plane. And to make it worse, the food is average. Don't order the chicken satay which is basically chicken with peanut butter. Service is friendly which is the only reason you don't fight with the Waiters.... Avoid this place..

“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!
