Mirissa has become a favourite destination for anyone looking to take a mini-vacation away from the hustle of the city, and joining the row of eateries down the main Mirissa stretch is O Mirissa Café and Bistro, a quaint little restaurant just a few strides away from the magnificent Mirissa beach.
Here are five reasons why you should swing by this perfect oasis.
1. Solid Starters
One thing that is quite impressive about O Mirissa is their starters. Not to take away from the brilliance of their mains, but if you were to order a few of these little dishes and share them among a group of friends, it would still make one of the most exciting meals you’ve had. From the Ocean Tuna in Sesame and Wasabi to the Prawn Popcorn, their starters are fresh, unique and delectable.
2. BYOB Deals
What better to accompany a great Calamari Rings dish than a beer or two? O Mirissa is a great place to grab a drink with a bunch of friends and what’s better – they have a Bring Your Own Booze policy with no corkage charges! It’s the perfect place to wind down after a long day on the beach.
3. Delicious Wood Fire Oven Pizzas
The top floor of O Mirissa is dedicated to their delicious range of Deltano pizzas. With a wood-fired oven accessible to diners, you can watch your pizza being made hot and fresh. They have a variety of toppings ranging from chicken to prawn to beef so there’s something for everyone!
4. Chic Tiling
The O Mirissa open kitchen concept adds a funky yet sophisticated touch and alongside the mosaic tiles, intricate ceiling décor and pretty murals, helps them balance that fine line between sophisticated yet youthful, welcoming both backpackers and luxury seekers alike.
5. Friendly Faces
Not only is the O Mirissa service fast and efficient, from the staff to the guests to the friends of the café, everyone is so cheerful and welcoming. Sri Lankans are known for their hospitality and O Mirrissa is a living testament to this!
O Mirissa is definitely worth the drive down to Mirissa, so be sure to check them out for some incredible food and great company!
