Great place to eat for a cricket fan

We stayed at Colombo Courtyard which is fantastic in terms of location if you are a foodie because this boutique hotel is surrounded by so many restaurants – am not exaggerating. The Cricket Club Café was just a mere 5 minute walk from our hotel. Before we decided to have lunch here, we did check... read more

Cricket cafe has a superb variety of food and definitely worth a visit! I've visited twice this month alone! The food variety is amazing and does not disappoint in quality either. The portions are very large. I recommend the pies as they are hot out of the oven and mouth wateringly good!! I tried the choc brownie but was a... More

Great place for a drink and a bite to eat. On our stay in Colombo we visited five times..... Each time had some good conversation with both customers and staff....cricket world cup was on the TVs. Was well looked after by the great staff. Decent food at a decent price. Will be back one day lads !!!

Went to this place couple days ago after a long time.... Whilst the place is warm n welcoming.... The food was nothing much.... I found the food to be quite bland.... The staff was helpful in their own capacity...

The food is good. Was happy to get a really nice beef burger after two weeks rice and rotti etc. But the tricky think is you get 10% service and 15% gov. Tax on your bill charged. And the wather bottle of half liter cost 165 rupes (including the 25% serv. % tax. ca. 200 rupes). Thats freaky to much!

We were looking for a place to have our last dinner in Colombo, and although we had been to a couple of nice places, we wanted to go somewhere different. When the taxi let us out at the Cricket Club, it looked deserted, at first we weren't sure that it was open. However we did venture inside, and asked to... More

Like many other nice restaurants in Colombo, this too seems be a bunglow converted into a pub. As the name suggests, the place is themed around cricket - with some great paraphernalia on display. Good food and quiet reasonable priced. There are option to sit outside, inside or at the bar.

It's like no other place, surrounded by cricketing stuff, good atmosphere, beers by the pitcher or by pints, good food with so down to earth prices, huge portions. Food Heaven.
