Food was fine, not the best meal in Unawatuna, but nothing to complain. I found... More

Stayed in Unatwatuna for 10 days in January, it was our first visit. Hot Rocks beach bar is very good, the service is excellent and the staff work very hard. Went there most days.

This beach side restaurant serves a wide range of good food at a reasonable price. We ate lunch there everyday for 5 days and tried several different items (noodle, kottu, burger, salad &more), all good.

Ate here twice, first time had the mixed fried noodles and prawn curry. The serving of the noodles was huge, could have fed the 2 of us and was not bad. Prawn curry was super spicy. Second time we had sweet and sour chicken and chicken curry. There were about 6 small pieces of chicken in the sweet and sour... More

Staying with my Godmum where she lives in Sri Lanka posed some minor problems as she adopts street dogs and takes them everywhere with her. This day we had 3 and although very well behaved - they are still dogs. We were able to eat here with the dogs and no restrictions. In fact due to dogs not normally being... More

This place was well priced but the quality of food was not to everybody's taste in our group. Chicken was mostly bone with little meat on board. Burgers were quite good. So order burger here!
