The reviewer below, Ranjiv K, has described in detail both the menu and the decor perfectly and therefore I won't repeat. I share his opinion that some muted background music would add to the ambiance but disagree that it was expensive. I thought that this menu of high quality food,superbly presented,by a great waiter,with a bottle of good red wine... More

Which is why we chose this restaurant over the many on offer in Colombo and we were not disappointed. We came here to celebrate a friends birthday and it was a lovely experience. Quirky decor in this old Colonial building with old fashioned service and great food including a good choice of Sril Lankans specialities with a modern twist.

I have eaten at HVN, the restaurant at Casa Colombo with many of my friends several times now. We all agree that this is the best restaurant in Sri Lanka. The roast red plum tomato soup may well be the best in the world! Their chicken lemongrass soup is likewise a winner. Every meal we have ever eaten here has... More

Hubby and I decided to have a tame NYE mainly as our holiday was super busy and the fact we had to fly back the next day. Having searched on NYE events in Colombo we opted for Casa Colombo's dinner package which included fireworks.

Four of us had dinner at this restaurant recently and wondered why we had made the effort. The decor was garish and did not seem to have be well thought out. The service was very slow and disinterested and the food unremarkable when it finally arrived. The restaurant was expensive and clearly considers itself to be fashionable and trendy but... More

We were invited by guests at the hotel for 25th December lunch. What a treat I thought as I have heard so many great reviews.

The night we came to HVN, the restaurant was shut down for a private event. They offered to seat us at the hotel's outdoor bar and bring the food to us there, which we did because we were starving.
