A nice discovery on our walk of the city. We shopped and ate while enjoying a respite from the city traffic of Colombo. The nice thing about the Dutch Hospital is that you have plenty of choices for the whole family/group. There are a number of restaurants to choose from and same goes for shopping. I sat and enjoyed a... More

One of the best shopping arcades in Colombo fort and its beautifully renovated to high standards. A variety of pubs and gift shops available and it is a lovely place to chill out in the evenings when the sun goes down..

We visited the Dutch Hospital during the afternoon and to be honest not a great deal was open. Its very limited in terms of venues. A couple of shops, a tea room 3 good resturants /bar and one whole building dedicated to a Spa. I'm told it gets lively at night with bands playing but be aware you cannot get... More

When they started renovating the Old Dutch Hospital, we were very excited and it actually lived up to its hype. The structure is very rustic and posh at the same time. You can find many high-end (expensive) restaurants in here. But the addition of pubs and small cafes such as Heladiv has made it a favourite amongst many. It can... More

The café we chose was just too slow. Since they just had one micro and we ordered four lasagne we were doomed and had to leave before delivery was complete.

It is a nice structure which gathers good restaurants and few shops. quite convenient, safe and good location. Full of tourists, but you also can see locals.

The complex consists of the old Hospital. So lovely long colonnaded walkways, a range of courtyards and some fine restoration work. This is mainly a place for food and partying - there are large number of restaurants from the Daily Crab to the Pub Crawl - at night the place is very busy. You can sit outside and eat under...
