This place is great for families and couples. Lots of options for restaurants-kids wanted pizza-Crab factory has amazing food plus there are live bands on weekends. The open courtyard also makes this a lovely place to chill! Will definately go back!

This is fairly newly developed in Colombo and offers lots of restaurant choices. The Ministry of Crab and other breakfast, lunch and dinner choices. It also has a small version of ODEL which is great for clothes shopping and souvenirs. Its well set out and has very clean/new bathrooms.

This place is near to The Kingsbury. Has a variety of options for drink & dine. Seems to be quite popular with the young crowd, mostly enjoying the pitcher beer and variety of snacks. TAPHOUSE by RnR has some exotic but tasty veg dishes/salads.

Built as a hospital by the Dutch, it has been used for several different purposes, over the years. It is believed to have existed since 1681. The Dutch built the hospital to look after the health of the officers and other staff serving under the Dutch East India Company. The hospital's close proximity to the harbour allowed it to serve...

The Dutch hospital is a architectural landmark that has been revitalized to a tourist attraction with retail shops and restaurants. It becomes crowded after Thursdays and the ambience is pretty good.

So ok maybe there are no trees but its a great old building with some nice restaurants and a few shops surrounded by Colombo's high risers. Good place to hang out and meet people working in Fort.

The awesome atmosphere during the week end and the day leading up to it simply is a must try. It is a lovely place to chill with friends and to enjoy the vibrant atmosphere. We dined at the Harpo's outlet. Food was great. Truly a relaxing evening. The only issue if at all would be finding a parking spot

This is a nice little complex but not to many shops. Odel and Barefoot for clothing and small souvenirs. Its more for dining and having a drink but when in Colombo, a must place to visit.
