We decided to visit this restaurant because it was really close to hotel Colombo Courtyard. The starter was great and we also ordered Black pork curry which was delicious. Paradise Road restaurant has a lovely ambient mood, the staff is very professional and polite. The prices are a bit above average but considered the place and quality of the service,... More

Had read so much about this cafe that I was super disappointed. The ambience is lovely, but the food and drinks are overpriced and minimal food options are available. At 11:30 AM, the cafe did not serve breakfast.

My wife and I arrived at 7pm and we were begrudgingly shown to a table. The restaurant was about a quarter full. We sat there for half an hour and nobody spoke to us. We were completely ignored. The staff were busy attending to the few diners that were there but they avoided eye contact with us at all costs.... More

I had read/heard of the Gallery Cafe even before visiting Colombo from friends and trip reviews--known for the fact that it is housed in the historic building that once used to be an office of the famous architect, Geoffrey Bawa. I went there with a friend on a rainy evening during my recent visit to Colombo and loved every bit... More

Good value for money in this unusual indoor/outdoor resaurant, the former offices of Sri Lanka's most famous architect, Geoffrey Bawa. A wide choice of dishes for all tastes from fish and chips to traditional Sri Lankan, and a good choice of wines and other drinks. The service can be slow at peak periods, but well worth the wait whatever you... More

Very nice garden and outdoor setting annex gallery. Delicious food, the best we had in three weeks SL (not necessarily SL food). Not that cheap but still affordable.
