Enjoy Seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach in Colombo

The very best seafood that Colombo has to offer is seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach. Mount Lavinia Beach is located in the outskirts of Colombo city and this beautiful strip of sandy beach has a lot to offer. Frequented by the locals as well as the tourists visiting Colombo, the best thing about Mt. Lavinia Beach is its exquisite seafood. Lining the beach are several small but ambient restaurants and pubs. There are also relaxing areas on the beach itself.

For tourists visiting Colombo, Mount Lavinia Beach is one of the top places to visit in Colombo. The weekends can be a bit crowded. With the locals getting a day off from work, but all through the week Mt. Lavinia Beach is quiet, relaxing, and peaceful. Going for a swim in the ocean is not really recommended because of dangerous ocean currents. The seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach is highly recommended.

Seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach comes in all shapes and sizes. The cabanas on the beach all serve delicious seafood such as lagoon prawns and a wide variety of sea fish. The best bit about the seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach is that fresh fish is filleted and then weighed. The customer only pays according to what the fish weighs. The chef asks the customer what preparation of fish they want. Spicy and piping hot, it is always best to wash it down with a chilled beer.

Another top reason why the seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach is so famous is because of the seasoning. Seasoned to perfection with local spices, the curries are local specialties and are known to be very hot to taste. The best thing is the ambiance it affords – a sunset by the beach and a romantic outdoor dinner or a candlelit dinner by the beach underneath the starry skies. Either way, it is a very romantic setting for any couple’s dinner plans.

Seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach is simply unique in its taste and preparation. The lagoon prawns are enormous and the fish is always fresh. The grilled prawn and calamari are famous here. Other specialties include cuttlefish, King Prawns with fried rice, and Okra with cheese. The sound of the waves crashing and wind whistling make for very good dining accompaniments. Fresh seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach is a fine dining choice and a variety of dessert go with them.

The best care with which the seafood on Mt. Lavinia Beach is served lacks no courtesy and hospitality. Despite the apparent language barriers, the food speaks for itself and the warmth of the hosts makes everyone feel at home. For any tourist, it is recommended to spend at least a full evening at the beach, if not both day and night. The sights, sounds, and tastes are simply amazing.
