We ate here one night and had the seafood platter. It had fish, jumbo prawn, stuffed crab, battered calamari, mash and veg. Everything was beautifully cooked except the calamari, which was very chewy. They don't have an alcohol licence so we took our own beer. The place looks lovely, and very cleverly designed for privacy despite its small size. Overall... More

Went to La Rambla for desert and found this to be an absolutely charming place, with very good service, ambiance and sweet treats. We all tried different things but I loved the pavlova the best - crispy meringue which was also soft and moist with a delightful selection of fruits. We could even specify if we didnt want a particular... More

My husband and I ate at La Rambla - just down the road from Mount Lavinia Hotel - this evening and would highly recommend! Choice was excellent, food was fabulous, service impeccable, lovely atmosphere and it was also great value for money! Fresh juices, smoked salmon , bruschetta, fajitas and Mongolian chicken, water and latte .... All for under £20!... More

Me & my husband went for a dinner 20th March. Lovely place with a good ambiance . Green & fresh air. Excellent food presentation. Food was nice & tasty. When Mr. Jayantha got to know it was my b'day he offered me a very tasty Tiramasu complimentary. Staff was polite. Value for money.

The menu has a lot of different typos of food…Mediterranean, Mexican, Asian, etc. We went twice and it was just "ok". The service and ambiance was great, but there are so many really good restaurants if you are ok with restaurants that look more rugged.

lovely place to eat , the food is very tasty and varied menu. Remember to take your own alcohol as they only serve soft drinks.

The portions are more than enough , love the calamari Appetizer ! . however i believe the only setback is that the... More

There are several restaurants and coffee shops just outside the Mount Lavinia Hotel in Colombo and while the food at the hotel is good (they have the largest dinner buffet I’ve ever seen anywhere) it’s fairly expensive and you do have to jockey with a pretty serious crowd at times especially if you come early for breakfast or dinner. We... More

I visited the place with my dad last night. Food was really good and presentation was nice as well. If I had a thing that bugged me was that I felt the waiters prefer to give preference to foreigners as against to locals. Hope this was a once off instance.

Excellent food and great atmosphere. Friendly and helpful staff. Only downside is that it takes time for them to serve food. So order plenty of drinks until the food arrive!
