The ambiance and sevice as Gallery Cafe is really great. Food is interesting and tasty, though I do feel like value for money has decreased somewhat, based on my experience over the last few years of coming to the restaurant. If you are visiting Sri Lanka - it is definitely worth trying out. Also great for a special night out.

Having lived in Colombo my whole life- I would say Gallery cafe is Definitly one of the best if not the best restaurant in Colombo. The food is always excellent- and the dessert is out of this world! I've been here more than I can count and it's never dissapointed me. The atmosphere is beautiful and you can sit outside... More

The Gallery Cafe has yet to disappoint me or my guests on every visit over the last 10 plus years as the food has always exceeded expectations topped off by the very decadent desserts. The management has consistently maintained very high standards with attention to every detail.

It has been a few years since I have been to Paradise Road Cafe as the last time I ate there the service was poor. Both the service and the menu has improved but the choice of cocktails was the best part of the evening

The Gallery Cafe is just wonderful. The food is incredible - of the highest standard. Both the local and International dishes are perfectly made and the huge selection of amazing puddings is not to be missed. The cocktails are superb too. The ambience is always lovely, service outstanding and it's always an absolute delight to visit.

First time back since 2009, I enjoyed being able to leave the hotel for dinner and made it to Paradise Rd. The Tuk Tuk did not seem familiar with the place but he could find it finally. The quiet street houses several new restaurants and bars, it seems to be an upcoming area for dining outside the big hotels. The... More

Better than most other restaurants we ate at in Sri Lanka. The black pork curry was a hit and the pasta was also tasty. Would have loved to sample their desserts as the cakes looked amazing, but we didn't have anymore room for them by the time we finished our mains. The ambience is lovely, with a fan-cooled verandah to... More

A beautiful place to eat BUT the food is hit and miss. Yes, you can always rely on the black pork curry and the coconut ice cream but sometimes you'll want a change. Some guidelines to help you get a decent meal. If the plate arrives too hot to touch, it means the food on it has been reheated and... More

The Gallery delivers fabulous food, in a vibrant atmosphere, with sensational service. The best thing is, it does so consistently. The incessant quest for perfection of the owner shine through in the high quality ingredients, the varied menu, the attractive presentation, the attentive staff and ...even if I repeat myself, the lovely setting. Do not miss when in Colombo.
