Hikkaduwa – Sri Lanka

Tasty | Delicious | Savoury


Our Story


We take pride in our humble beginnings. Established in 1979 with a very small number of staff the proprietor Mr. L H Jayalath named the restaurant after his initials J.L.H. Beach Restaurant. With time we matured and expanded our service by obtaining the ‘A’ grading from the Sri Lankan Tourism Development board. JLH Restaurant also have a bar that operates within the premises that has a wide selection of international and local alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages.

Today we are a team of 17 guided by the visionary thinking of the Proprietor Mr. Jayalath De Silva himself and managed by his son Asela De Silva.

    Our Customer Says

    Great Shark Steak

    Very large choice of food, even for somebody who doesn't like Asian cuisine, curry, spice food or fish. They even have pork and lamb, which were pretty much tasty. I had a Shark Steak and it was delicious. The service is much more quicker than in other places

    Perfect dinner spot

    Went here for dinner when we wanted a nice seafood dinner on the beach. Some of the best service we had in Sri Lanka, very attentive waiter and they even moved a table from inside to outside so we could be right at the ocean. Ordered prawn and crab curry and deviled fish. Curry was very good, though a bit messy to crack the small pieces of crab. Would visit again!

    Rigtig godt

    Kan varmt anbefales.
    Dejlig udsigt til stranden.
    Super dejlig velsmagende varm mad, 2 af os fik deviled store flotte rejer, den 1 fik krabbe-reje curry, som var noget af det bedste han havde fået.
    Der kom skylleskåle på bordet, uden man skulle spørge. der blev også til retterne serveret stor kurv papadum.
    Venligt , høfligt, og hurtigt personale.

    La bandeja de marisco impresionante. Hemos repetido y pedimos pollo y la misma calidad. Tienen un servicio muy profesional y la ubicación al borde del mar lo hacen unico. Esta limpio y te desintoxicas de los olores de la calle. No os lo perdáis!

    Finalmente una cena decente

    Situato sulla spiaggia, il cibo é ottimo. Il pesce freschissimo. I prezzi sono più alti della media ma ne vale veramente la pena. In 2 per 2 piatti di pesce e bibite si spende poco più di 25 euro italiane. Consigliatissimo

    Prisvärt och smakrikt

    Väldigt prisvärd restaurang med innehållsrik meny som passar för många smaker. Snabb service. Åt här flera gånger under vår vistelse.

    Fisch und Meer

    10cm vom Strand entfernt genießt man primär die Köstlichkeiten aus dem Meer, dessen Rauschen das Essen perfekt begleitet. Den Catch of the day gibt es schön gegrillt zum akzeptablen Preis, das Curry hier ist eher thailändisch, aber auch sehr lecker. Abgerundet wird der schöne Abend durch einen genialen limesugar-pancake. Wir waren begeistert und deshalb auch mehrfach da...

    Высокая кухня

    Лучшее заведение из всех посещенных в Хикадуе, отличное обслуживание, огромное меню из которого есть всё в наличии, и, сравнительно, невысокие цены.После фирменной тарелки морепродуктов принесли воду с лаймом- всполоснуть руки. Единственное но: в фирменном блюде не увидел заявленных осьминогов - но это мелочь!

    Best meal I've ever had

    My friend and I came for dinner on our last night in Sri Lanka and had the best meal we've ever tasted. We went for the seafood platter and it was divine! Such amazing value for money as you literally got every type of seafood going, it was so generous! On the side we also had some salad and chips which they kindly topped up for us. We sat just outside by the beach, it was a beautiful evening, thank you!

    Favourite restaurant

    We came here twice during our week in Hikkaduwa. The seafood platter is absolutely amazing!! Stunning location, lovely staff, great (strong) cocktails, wish they could come to London!!!

    Stopped here for some lunch after a day on the beach and was happy with the service and food. Very popular with the local tuk tuk drivers and some nice views of the beach and sea.

    Best crab

    We enjoyed a fantastic crab meal here. A light garlic, lemon and butter sauce didn’t overpower the sweetness of the very juicy, tasty crab. Great prices, cold beer and exceptional service the night we had this meal. It is right on the beach with the waves literally at your feet.
