A short walk from the Mount Lavinia Hotel

Its Spanish food , with excellent service and fair prices. We enjoyed one of the best meals of our 2 week visit to Sri Lanka. Definitely better than anything in the hotel nearby.

The owner/s have obviously strayed into unfamiliar territory by opening this restaurant. They should either get their restaurant act together or get back to hawking whatever commodities they were selling earlier. The café is on a street corner on a narrow stretch of hotel road and parking is a big challenge. If you park across the road take extra care... More

La Rambla offers some very tasty food in a comfortable stylish setting. Staff is friendly and attentive. Portion sizes are generous and reasonably priced. To start I like the mushroom cappuccino soup or the olive -mushroom bruchetta.For a main the monster burrito is delicious and can feed two people(or make a nice lunch the next day). The chicken burrito is... More

The food and service were excellent. They told us where to buy some beer and served it to us in the restaurant. It was a short walk from Mount Lavinia Hotel, although we returned by tuktuk because it was pouring with rain.

Nice decor but unfortunately, my husband got sick on the Thai noodles. My vegetarian dish was ok, however. Had we been informed beforehand, we would have gone for an authentic Sri Lankan cuisine.

The atmosphere, service and food is a pleasant treat if you are staying at nearby hotels and need a change. My meal was well prepared, tasty and served in a timely manner. Good value. I will go back without hesitation.

Unfortunately unlike many reviews our experience was a negative one. The food was trying to be something of a fine dining experience but the chefs skill was lacking and couldn't quite pull of the interesting ideas. Some of the flavours combinationskin were nice but the fish and calamari especially was way overcooked, to the point it was a strain to... More

What a delight! If you ever find yourself in this area do yourself a favour and try out this restaurant. Clean, quiet and a great atmosphere. Suberb menu, with a wonderful variety of dishes. The food was excellent! Hope to see you soon!
