Where to begin? I expected big things as this restaurant is #1 on TA and it blew me away. The menu is full of amazing choices and I would have loved to try every main meal. I ended up having an avocado juice, so refreshing, fried calamari for entree, cooked very well with a delicious sauce. Then the waiter Danny... More

Beautiful place, clean, and they treat you really well! The meat is one of the best that I ate in Sri lanka in 2 months. A little bit expensive if you compare with another places in Sri lanka, but it worth.

Superb restaurant. Friendly staff but not licensed to serve wine. So we could buy a bottle from the nearby supermarket, and no problem to take it to the table. At the end the staff climbed the tree on the terras to pick fresh mangos for us. Kids were astonished. Definitely recommendable!

Very glad to stumble on this place. Tasty pasta dishes, and not expensive considering the unusually attentive and quick service.

A lovely restaurant with luxurious decor and a cosmopolitan menu. The food was beautifully presented and the service was very good. Our only disappointment was to discover that the restaurant is not licensed. We were told that we could have brought our own alcohol but we didn't know that in advance.

La Rambla is just a short walk from the Mount Lavinia Hotel. The food is excellent and beautifully presented. We have eaten there a few times and have never been disappointed.
