Really nice bar on the beach. We went in low season so it wasn't really busy. The service was average. You don't see a lot of places in Sri Lanka that are so inviting as this place. Recommended visit when staying in Uppuveli.

The food and location are good but the service is awful. We waited 30 minutes for a coconut water and 2 hours for a chicken wrap. Unfortunately the only place on the beach where you can chill out. They need to sort service out.

The food is well made but it is expensive and small portions... The double burger is good (1050 lkr). The hummus is not hummus so not recommended.

The days spent on the beachfront, was spectacular. Getting service can be a little tricky. But while you wait for your meal or your drink, you can have a swim, play volleyball and enjoy the lazy day vibe!

My sister and I visited Fernando's a few times during our stay. It's a great place with beautiful views, fantastic cocktails, great music and atmosphere but that's where it ends.... We suggest you visit this place purely as your sun baking destination or as your...More

Worst place we've visited in our 3 week 6 destination trip around Sri Lanka. Where to start with what 'looks like' paradise! Beach fronted, palm tree surrounded, blazing hot and great looking menu. All looks great, but not at all how first impressions might lead...More
