“Great location and tasty food”
Reviewed 9 April 2013

Located write by the ocean, it is a very relaxing place. We had stopped here for lunch and spent nearly a couple of hours enjoying the breeze. The kids loved to spot the crabs on the rocks and the fish in the water. The food was tasty and prices were reasonable.

“Right on the Reefedge”
Reviewed 4 April 2013

The Reefedge is a great laid back seafood restaurant with a pictureseque seascape of the Indian Ocean. Some of the tables sit right on the seawall and when the large rollers come in you get a few wet feet - kids loved it!

There is a range of seafood on offer and we had a great prawn curry and squid salad. Kids enjoyed their fried rice too.

It was quiet at the restaurant with only one other table taken but as we were leaving a few local businessmen came in and ordered a seafood feast. The service was friendly, chatty and laidback in true Lanka style.

Polheena beach is worth a visit for a swim afterwards and is safe for the kids as it sits back behind the reef in a relatively calm lagoon.

““dinner with candles””
Reviewed 11 February 2013

In this restaurant we had a nice romantic “dinner with candles”with my wife. First very nice detail is the panoramic view on the ocean- more than 180 degrees, the second detail is pleasant managment of the owner-he is ready to listen to the people and to offer some help if you like. All the meals we ordered was tasty, i definitly liked them. Its also close to a beach Polhena, a good place to watch a wild turtles.This is a good place to spend some time sitting on a chair, chatting with a friend in scape, if you fell lonely, or if you are not alone, while drinking a good fresh you can just sit and watch the ocean in quite and meditative atmosphere of soft night lights. We find here everything we need to feel our self’s comfortable and relaxed.

“Good food, served at the edge of the ocean.”
Reviewed 22 January 2013

It was mesmerizing to sit on the deck at the Reef Edge Restaurant, near Polhena Beach and gaze out at the waves as they lapped up next to our table. We spent time there in the afternoon for lunch and then in the evening on the rooftop with the stars and the sea. The food is delicious. Great Sri Lankan food and good Western food (omelettes and spaghetti were my favorites). If you are in Matara, take a rickshaw to Polhena Beach and try Reef Edge in the evening as the sun is setting. You won't be disappointed!
