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.

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

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.
