Seafood Cove

Think hurricane lamps sending a saffron glow athwart the wind-swept night; oceans dreaming in the moonlight; soft sands caressing your toes as you nibble on crab fritters with lemon aioli…

The Menu

Nestled on the beachfront of ‘Mount Lavinia Hotel’, the ‘Seafood Cove’ orchestrates gourmet seafood experiences, in a celebration of the day’s fresh catch. From Prawn Caesar and Calamari Garden Salads, to wasabi-mayonnaised Crumbed Prawns and Thai Fish Cakes, an array of appetizers tickle your taste buds. France-inspired Lobster Thermidor and Mornay Oysters and classical English-style Kilapatrick Oysters capture sumptuous Western gastronomic expressions while Nihon-flavoured Tempura Lobster, Sri Lankan Chili Crab and Singapore-seasoned Black Pepper Crab pay tribute to the culinary wealth of the East.

The dinner-time-only seafood market carries over 20 varieties, including Cuttlefish, Crab, Prawn, Lobster, Oyster, Pomfret, Clams, Seer, Tuna and Modha, which will be Baked, Poached, Steamed, Fried, Roasted, Grilled or Barbequed to the call of the diner’s taste buds. These preparations will then be accented with Sauces, the likes of Black Pepper, Hot Sambal Butter, Mongolian, BBQ and Devilled; or styled into Sri Lankan / Thai inspired Red and White Curries. All seafood offerings are presented with Garden Salads, Tempered or Plain Rice, Chips, Potatoes, Spinach-dhal Mix or Garlic Kang Kung.

The Experience

From a rustic, cadjan-thatched gazebo deeply evocative of a typical fishing spot, to wooden seating areas scattered right under the star-embellished skies, it is a picture-perfect experience that awaits one at the ‘Seafood Cove’. Waiters clad in ethnic island attire bustle about, adding to the restaurant’s exotic character. Come night time, an open seafood market display enthralls the diner while live calypso music enhances the magical atmosphere.
