Our Beach Front Surf Cafe is facing Arugam Bay Main Point and is the best place to enjoy a breakfast, a lunch or just a fresh juice watching this world class surf break and the surfers.

We are open 7 days a week for Breakfast from 7 am until 12 am, Lunch & snacks from 12.30 am until 6 pm, and Diner on reservation ONLY from 7 pm to 9 pm.

We offer a blend of western, asian and local food and our menu keeps evolving from season to season. We are currently working on our new 2020 menu. Follow our Facebook page or Instagram @upali.beach to see more pictures of the Cafe and of our dishes.

As we put a great attention in the quality of the products we use and hence depend upon daily market availabilities, we may sometimes be running out of some ingredients and hope you'll understand it.

Some customers reviews from TripAdvisor :

Great beach cafe
Great view overlooking main point where you can watch the surfers. The best coconut lassi ever and tasty hoppers. Service a bit slow but why would you come somewhere like this if you’re in a rush?!

I only had one meal here and I really enjoyed it. I had the fish of the day which was perfectly cooked and served with rice and a delicious cucumber and carrot salad. We had lunch at 4 p.m. so the opening times of the restaurant were a real advantage for us! Their drinks are really good too, I recommend the rose lassi.

A lovely chilled place to have breakfast or lunch! The only spot to watch the surfers at main point!

Had a really tasty and healthy lunch here - a Vietnamese salad bowl with chicken. It was sooo good, I only wish there had been more chicken :) The staff are really friendly and you can sit on a shaded sun bed right next to the ocean and watch the surfers as you eat. Really chilled lovely place.

Legit beachfront view, toes in the sand and the ocean just footsteps away. Relaxing atmosphere to work on your laptop, read a book, or lay on the daybeds. Sit back and watch the surfers whilst sipping on real coffee, fresh juices or trying some delicious food. Would highly recommend for families, friends, or the solo traveller.
Pictured here is the ‘Shashuka’ dish, but because I’m vegan, I substituted the egg for pasta, and it was incredible! Chef’s get a 10/10 as always.

We stayed at the resort for nine days and had coffee at the cafe every morning. Coffee is delicious. So is the passion fruit lemonade. We had hoppers - vegan and Thai, both were amazing! The view is not to be missed.
You can order at the bar and your meal or drink can be delivered anywhere on the property, including sun beds and hammocks.

I was with my two young children and this was the best place to spend an afternoon, have some lunch (be prepared to wait when busy though) and watch the surfers out on Main Point. Safe area, good restaurant and even better vibes...

The Upali Surf Cafe is located directly overlooking the main point on Arugam Bay- the views are amazing and you can watch the surfers whilst enjoying your breakfast. The pancakes are insane- I would thoroughly recommend! The staff are super friendly and really lovely! If you are looking for food with a view this is the place for you!

Find this place with tasty food, good location and friendly staff. Recommend everyone to stop by and try.
