1864 is situated in the magnificent Galle Face Hotel a must visit when in Colombo. My starter of grilled watermelon with prawns was a revelation and absolutely delicious, the flavours & textures so different to anything I've had before. Had the corn & crab soup next which was perfectly seasoned and 1 of the best soups Ive ever had with... More

For the price we pay the food was really bad. it was a disappointment as I had gone with my partner for my birthday. pasta was all soggy and bland and the chicken had a weird taste nd was cooked properly. Papaya juice was all watery. will never revisit.

Fine dining but not at its finest. Great setting, good wine selection but overall quality of service and food a bit lacking ... especially given the higher price points.

This is a fine dining restaurant with good wine cellar in the basement.Service and food taste is average.Have potential to deliver more but I guess little concentration on quality and variety.

I have eaten here a few times and it has in general been an OK place. The sitting is nice and it is a very well renovated room. The food is usually quite good, a bit pricey though, and I was so disappointed when they served me a piece of overcooked leather and insisted on that it was the filet... More

1864 is an extremely elegant restaurant in the Galle Face Hotel. The quality of the decor and furnishings are extremely good. At the present time this restaurant is being used as the main restaurant of the hotel whilst others are being refurbished. The breakfast buffet is superb with an incredible wide range of foods available. A lunchtime 'mini buffet' is... More
