Friendship Beach Bar & Restaurant | Sri Lanka

Friendship Beach Bar & Restaurant is one of the coolest places to hangout along Tangalle Beach.

You can grab a drink at the bar, pull up a chair on the beachfront or swing in the hammock & watch the world go by as the sun goes down. The atmosphere here is so chilled, you will never want to leave!

It’s a Family Thing: The owner, Dami has started up the business from scratch with a little help from his friends & family. They’re a talented bunch – They can sing, dance, play guitar, beat on the bongos, not to mention their surfing skills make for great entertainment!


The Location: This is one of the best locations in Tangalle. The sea is really calm here compared to other parts of the beach making it a great spot for swimmers & surfers! We sat here all day, with the occasional dip in the sea in-between drinks of course!


The Food: They have a really unique menu offering a modern, healthy twist on the traditional Sri Lankan favourites. They have some amazing Seafood options that are all freshly caught along with a full range of Vegetarian options.  The owners wife is Vegetarian, which is why they have such varied options to choose from on the menu. (Try the Guacamole, it’s the BEST!) They have loads suitable for Vegans too – Which is always a big hit!

We came here for a quick lunch one day and ended up staying all afternoon for lunch, drinks & dinner. The food is that good! We had quite a selection between us – Fresh Lobster, Crab, Prawns, Mahi Mahi & Red Snapper. Not forgetting, they make an amazing Mojito too! (The best one we tasted in Sri Lanka!)

Such a cute little find, a secret gem on the beach!

    Hi Hannah,

    This place looks incredibly chill. Perfect beach location for me.

    We just visited Colombo during our trip in 2013. Can’t wait to get to the beach to see more of what Sri Lanka has to offer.

    Thanks for sharing 🙂

    Signing off from Thailand.
