We spent two weeks in Unawatuna for diving. Black & White was the direct neighbor of our diving base, so we eat there daily. The staff is very friendly and competent. The food is compared with few other restaurants we tried on the beach the best. I tried rice and curry as well as sandwiches and sea food. The prices... More

The place is located on the beach and offers great sea food and a relaxed atmosphere. Food was good, but the Margarita could be improved. A good option for a good meal.

This is a pretty cute/standard Unawatuna beachfront restaurant. Why it is so highly rated on TripAdvisor is a mystery to us. My son and I ordered lobster, which is listed as 900 rupees on the menu (seemed too good to be true) - I'm sure it said something like 'market weight' but I missed it. Then, they took us out...

We took grilled fish, marinara with sea food, and seafood soup. Everything was very good, especially fish. It was very fresh, grilled just enough to be juicy and done, spices they added fit perfectly so we can feel the taste of the fish itself as well.

We had two evenings here as we enjoyed it so much on the first visit. Second time around a week later we were greeted by the waiter who rather impressively remembered our drinks order from the previous visit! Nice menu with interesting starter. Service was good without lengthy waits between courses. Worth a visit.

Service was very good although we went a bit early so they weren't exactly overrun with customers. Great location on Unawatuna beach. The food was outstanding for what you are paying. We had calamari, mixed vegetable curry and prawn curry. There are cheaper places to eat on the beach but we didn't find anywhere with food as good as this.

I visited unawatuna with my girlfriend for 5 days. We tried various restaurants highly rated on trip advisor, however, we had to come back to Black and White 3 times as it was amazing. I got the full curry and my girlfriend the Deviled prawns. I've seen other reviews saying it's slow, but the service is great it is worth... More

I loved this place, we went based on reviews on TA and we're not dissapointed. I chose the red snapper and at 400rps per 100g it was great value. The fish came out cooked perfectly, crispy and tasty skin with juicy meat. Well worth the money. The drinks were also good value especially for a place on the beach -... More
