The Experience

Nestled on the soft sands of Mount Lavinia Beach christened ‘the golden mile’, ‘Loon Tao’ basks in an open tropical hut structure, allowing diners ease into the ocean scene. The interiors are clad in beautiful wooden furniture which gives it a cosy and cheerful character. Featuring an entertainment venue furnished with a 1,000 square foot wooden dance floor, the seafood restaurant also hosts parties and dances as well as beach barbeques and cocktail nights.

As you bask in a decadent seafood platter at ‘Loon Tao’, guitar notes fill the rollicking air and brine waters croon softly.
