Our first dinner night out was to the Mangrove Garden and we some kind of fell in love with this place. The welcome is warm and the service very friendly. The menu is well structured and there is a choice for everyone. Some of the more special deals (special dishes/ plates for two persons) might be not available all the time...but that's the price of fresh cuisine. My girl and me had both some kind of spicy curry thing - one with chicken and one with prawns. Both delicious. The prices are reasonable for a place with a nice view on the ocean and quality food. A little hint: Take a flash light with you if you ever want to make it back to the parking lot ;)
This cabanas on the beach are beautiful and just new.Also the beach is awesome.The staff is just very slow,uninterested, not helpfull and only a few speak english.The first morning we had to wait one and a half hour on a breakfast, wich is very long with two hungry kids.So we asked or the next day it could be better...but still a half hour for a small breakfast(dry toast, a little fruit, egg and tea).We had much better breakfasts for these rates on our trip through Sri Lanka. The cabanas are far from the city of tangalle which is not comfort for things like a supermarket.You need a tuk tuk for 15 minutes. Also there are no other restaurants in the neighbourhood. Wifi only in the restaurant and very slow, sometimes it doesn't work eighter. Swimming in the sea is not possible, and hotels around ask a lot of money if you want to have a swim. Expensive all over... And mind for snakes and frogs in the open bathrooms.The cahlets on the other side a maybe better...but still far from tangalle!
