Cactus Lounge Restaurant

Reviewed By mariannearnemo - Oslo, Norway

Our driver for the the took us to this lovely place located on the beach a bit west of Tangalla centre. We had no expectations and were surprised about both the fantastic location and the nice food. We had fish of the day and prawns. Delicious and with a fantastic garlic sauce. I would definitely recommend it.

Oceanfront @ Buckingham Place

*STRICTLY - Reservation Only – please don’t just turn up!<br><br>*SORRY - all children must be OVER 6 years old (NO toddlers/babies).<br><br>Buckingham Place relocated its restaurant to overlook the ocean, you’ll see why when you get here! Oceanfront’s location, atmosphere, eclectic menus and easy going hospitality are well worth a trek out of town. Short, well executed menus offer imaginative fusion, locally caught fish, prawns and as one might expect, traditional Sri Lankan fare - all prepped and cooked freshly to order. <br><br>Reserve early for Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch or Dinner!<br><br>Tips: very limited table space – booking essential, no children under 6, check website or Google maps before setting off, please call if you can’t find us!

Sha Sha Seafood

Reviewed By Mark D - Cheshire, United Kingdom

Clearly you should judge a restaurant primarily by its food but let me start with the experience. Following the floods last year, you can no longer get to the restaurant by road so they have improvised by a Sri Lankan style fishing boat / canoe - brilliant! Tuk tuk chap knew exactly where to take us. Then the restaurant... located high up on the narrow beach, just yards from the sea. Just a small beach shack doing about 5 tables. And what a restaurant with the most amazing location /experience. You just lap it up. We had red snapper and calamari washed down with ice cold beers. Simply brill!

Turtle Landing Restaurant

Reviewed By Irritable - Cheshire, UK

It’s a shame that the Cactus Lounge seems to be always busy yet this is much quieter. We loved it equally. The family who run it are friendly, accommodating and excellent cooks. Their salad which accompanies some of the dishes is exceptional. We went several times and enjoyed all visits immensely. Highly recommended.

The prawn cocktail was fantastic. We had the mixed seafood which was very good except the overdone fish. A reasonably priced Sauvignon Blanc from Chile was well chilled. Staff was very friendly and gave good service.

Tangalle Rice & Curry Restaurant

Reviewed By Travelleryoda

We ate here twice during our three night stay in Tangalle and were very impressed both times. The host is a really lovely guy and the food is just as good. The best Sri Lankan food we've had to date. The different veggie curries were delicious, especially the pumpkin one. The place had a good ambience, helped by the 00s ballads sounding out. We can't recommend this place enough. A bit off the beaten track but don't miss it.

Seafood Restaurant

little bay Seafood Restaurant is the leading seafood restaurant in this area for past years as owner.

Reviewed By Natascha123a

The owner and the staff are friendly, but very less English is spoken. But the manager is a whole different story, he is making a discussion of every point, question or he made up one himself. He even asked me a few times for explanations.
I travelled alone as a woman and he was trying to get in touch with me. After I declined he was asking for explanations and keep on going.
For example: I and other guests wanted to have breakfast separately at a specific table. Je m'as up another table, one table. I said that I wanted to eat alone at this specific table. He said that he already made up this table...
Normally I am very persuasive but it was all the time with every thing......very exhaustive....
Energy sucking.....

We took our baby to this restaurant and they could not have been lovelier. The food was amazing and is extremely reasonable. A lovely place and atmosphere, we loved that they have playing cards on the tables. Definitely worth a visit for dinner.
