Beautiul Old Building

Externally it has been retained as it was years ago but inside it contains a number of reasonable restaurants and one or two shops. Well worth a visit.

From reading other reviews prior to our visit, I thought this place would have been a lot bigger, and with a lot more atmosphere. One end is taken up with the Ministry of Crabs restaurant. There were a couple of bars and shops and the Colombo Fort Café. That was about it. A five minute stop and you have seen... More

Amazing old building with great architecture and restaurants and shops - but they are all upper price range so we just took a walk there and then headed off ... The restaurants offer great food and the sitting environment is excellent -- the prices are upper standard :(

Coffee shop, restaurants, shopping, team lounges, police station, upmarket brands, factory second outlets in the closet location. This has it all. Some of the biggest restaurants are here and from the looks and way it is spread out, am sure it has to be one of the best spots for the evening. Coffee shops for the light lunches and heavy...

Dutch Hosputal is a small nice building with mostly café's. In the back you will find Nature Secrets where you can have wonderful massages and facial treatments. I had one and enjoyed it. It's 4000 for an hour treatment the products are very good, based on herbs. Worth your while if you are tired from the city traffic.

Shopping is nothing special at the Dutch hospital, not many shops and quite expensive. Lots of restaurants, but i can't tell whether they are good, I didn't try them. I think what is nice is that you can sit in the courtyard, have a drink or something to eat, listen to music and just spend some time there. People usually... More

This is a lovely shopping arcade in the heart of business Colombo. It is particularly strong in cafes that do not charge the Earth. A friendly atmosphere with genuine welcoming staff awaits you.

A good place to have a nice spot of lunch or dinner. Good service and the quality of food is excellent - pricey, but what the heck - who goes to Colombo everyday ! The shopping is ordinary - pick up a few local knick-knacks !

This is a beautifully restored precinct with a great mix of retail, restaurants and bars. It was here I discovered the shopping delights of Odels, a retail institution of Sri Lanka with high quality innovative fashion and general wares!
