Excellence is at the heart of our restaurant. A thoughtfully developed fusion of Pacific Rim cuisines with Mediterranean influences reflects our brand of world cuisine. And of course, the best traditional Sri Lankan food for miles! We strive to use organic ingredients and source locally grown produce whenever possible.
A daily delivery of fresh fish and seafood is prepared under the superb supervision of Sharon and her skilled team of chefs. If you have any specific dietary requirements, please inform us and we will be more than happy to cater to your needs. Serving you will be our team of handpicked, ever-cheerful waiters, providing guests with a memorable and complete dining experience.
We serve Arugam Bay's best coffee at Hideaway Blue, our buzzing roadside cafe, with interior seating in Hideaway's lush garden. Fresh cold juices and super smoothies, toasted sandwiches packed with flavour, delectable desserts - homemade with love with the freshest local ingredients, are all on the menu.
Step inside to seek shelter from the day's heat under our tree, colourful conversations are our real specialty! Lounge in our day-beds, spend time with friends and make new ones, and groove along with us to our favourite reggae, jazz and funk tunes. And if you don't want to leave empty-handed, we have a unique selection of surf and travel products on sale: funky shirts, sunglasses, natural sunscreen and zinc, vintage Ceylon posters, surf wax and spectacular postcards to send to family and friends.
Top Tip: Try the (local) coconut & coffee infused cup of elixir

The Hide & Chill Bar, tucked away inside Hideaway's beautiful garden, has become one of Arugam Bay's most beloved watering holes. Away from the hustle and bustle of the busy season on the strip, here, we serve up the freshest, coldest and most delicious cocktails in the bay, each with our signature local twists to keep you guessing; each drink served with a warm smile, and some groovy tunes – always – for free. Hide & Chill is the perfect place to wind down after an evening surf or kick start your night out; you don’t need to walk far for Hideaway's highly acclaimed dinner service either.
Our Happy Hour is every evening from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, so the early birds at the bar can reap the rewards of our special buy-one get-one-free deal. Saturday evenings are special at Hide & Chill, with live music from our resident jazz-soul-blues guru, Jerome Speldewinde.
Top Tip: Try our home-extracted Espresso Martini and Spiced Rum brews.
Open from: May 1st - October 14th; 6:00pm to 11:00pm
In an effort to bring the community together we launched our Sunday Market which gives local artisans and manufacturers the opportunity to showcase their products in a vibrant fun-filled atmosphere. We also serve a 3-course brunch complete with passion fruit mimosas, live jazz and beer on tap. The Market has been a great success as an initiative, one that has grown in leaps and bounds, with vendors coming in from all over the island.
