Just on the road to the beach, it advertises hostel rooms, so we took a punt because of the Trip Advisor Ratings. Wow great ambiance and the food is amazing.

We visited pink elephant on a trip to Sri Lanka with a few friends. After searching the beach restaurants for a few evenings we went on the road side and were kindly greeted and relaxed on the floor cushions and we decided to eat there too. We had a section of fish soup, prawn guacamole and prawns for starters which... More

Completely lived up to the reputation it has built for itself. The decor is simple and the feel very relaxed and casual. The starters of avocado with prawns and chilly was amazing; the... More

Busy place but still service was quite fast. Food was so good that this was only place in Unawatuna where we ate twice. Everything we tried was good but grilled prawns were so delicious I almost cried.

I had my own version of "Sri Lankan tapas" as I didn't want another curry, roti etc. We had poppadoms / chutneys / dips / dumplings. The chutneys were very nice. VERY spicy tho - but we ate the lot. The veggie dumplings were overly doughy - I couldn't finish them. We also had some fried noodles - ok, but... More
