We have just been to turtle landing restaurant. Soups, Cuddle fish, and veggie noodles were very good! Also, location is very romantic at the beach!

Me and my wife decided to went there based on the reviews. I ordered a mix sea food for 2500 rs and it was ok but nothing special. The view is nice and the waiters were friendly. At the end we got a bill with additional 10% charge, the charge was not mentioned in the menu.

We ordered the kettle fish and the prawns and they were the best we have had in Sri Lanka! They came with super skinny delicious hand cut chips and a fresh yummy salad. Fish noodles were also a huge hit, and the kids loved it. The setting is gorgeous, so even if the food takes a little longer than what... More

The waiters were not overly motivated, but friendly. The restaurant does not offer much vegetarian choice. We had vegetarian noodles and rice with fish. The dishes were good, nothing extraordinary. Price was OK and average for this area (around 600 for main course). A big advantage is the good view directly next to the beach; it's very scenic on a... More

The waiter looked very bored and was more interested in his phone rather than providing good service. Food was okay, but nothing special at all, knowing the fact that we went there only because we read nice reviews in TA. If you don't live very close to this place it is not worth going there

Straight away we were greeted by the owner who cooked all fresh on spot for us, I had prawn omelette and prawn toasted sandwich that was tasty and good portion and my partner had prawn noodle that he said was...

We originally were destined for Cactus Lounge next door but due to Poya Day celebrations they were closed ... Turtle Landing it was! And we weren't disappointed. The fish was super fresh with a fragrant local spice mix; the prawn noodles were delicious and the fried rice and salad the perfect accompaniment. To top it off the two sambols were... More
