We ordered the fish plate, which on the day we were there, was seer fish. It was absolutely lush.
Each dish was served with noodles, fried rice with vegetables, chips and a big smile. We met Mr Fisherman himself, he was very charming.
The most delicious thing was the passion fruit juice. The restaurant like many in Arugam Bay is not licensed however Mr Fisherman nipped next door for a couple of beers for us!

My girlfriend and I decided on Mr Fisherman having seen a lot of positive reviews in the last few weeks. We were not disappointed. The guys working there are lovely and the fish (we had the combo platter) is to die for. Very fresh and beautifully cooked. The location on Google maps is correct, or just look for the man selling fish along the main road

We had a wonderful meal at Mister Fisherman. The location is right on the main road as you enter Arugam Bay (a few doors down from Rocco’s). We had a seafood platter with prawns, fish, calamari and crab - everything was so fresh! All meals come with rice, noodles and chips, which were excellent. Mr Fisherman was there himself and we are glad we got to meet him and hear his stories. All seafood caught fresh by him everyday.

Few friends went to have lunch over Mr Fisherman restaurant after having a chat with him in the morning at the beach. He gave us some surfing advice and invited us to try his restaurant. He is an amazing guy and the food was really fresh, as all is fished by him in the same day. Go there if you are looking for a real local place with great and fresh fish.
